Hey Apple, Don't Break My iPod! sign now

Dear Apple,

Your company has long stood for innovation and open competition. Wasn't it Apple that ran the famous Super Bowl ad encouraging consumers like us to stand up for our right to make our own choices? We're asking that you do the same now and support the right of your own customers to make their own choices about where they buy music for the iPod. We want Freedom of Music Choice! Don't lock us in to purchasing digital music from one source. That's bad for competition. It will stifle innovation. And it will slow the adoption of digital music devices like the iPod.

Do the right thing. Stand with us for Freedom of Music Choice!

    As usual, you silly yanks are missing the bigger picture. This is not about corporation vs corporation. Freedom of choice is incompatible with monopoly and by all these negative , you're endorsing the monopoly. Making I-Tunes the only compatible service f

    In my 60 years I have never seen a public corporation (Real Networks) behave in this way - technically hacking or in stirring up consumer petitions. All this is simply unreal and your stock deserves to be trashed. Real Networks is now losing its #1 servic

    Mr. Real, get your heads checked. If you want to talk about peace, you need to have bombs. If you want to talk about giving money to poor, you need to be rich. You want to talk about having DRM open to all, you should OWN it, and it should be the market L

    You can't force people to buy music from only one store, unless that one store can provide every song in the world.
  • 01 December 2015983. Roland C
    I really don't think REAL is doing a good thing. They aren't even collaborating with Apple.

    I second forwarding this list to the press to expose the double standard REAL has instituted here. Freedom of Music Yes! Freedom of Speech NO! Greed YES! Unoriginality YES! What poppycock.

    You guys suck. It doesn't matter who set this up because Real Sucks. You can't stand the truth. If Apple set this up them I'm lmao because it worked. They know that you suck. Everyone knows that you suck. You can have your spam and spyware. Who cares how

    Go away Real, Your software is buggy, memory hungry garbage that caused my Mac to crash even when it wasn't running until I finally discovered it was the cause and removed it. It's the only program I've ever run that has been so littered with memory leaks

    I love my ipod but it's not good karma for apple to keep me from using my purchase with other formats. It would be no diffrent than if Sony's tape walkman (back in the 80s) would only play tapes from artists or bands who are signed on sonys label. Apple s
