Apple’s “Free” Software

Steven Frank:

My position isn’t really “boo hoo, Apple should play nice”—like everyone else, we’ll do whatever we need to as a company to stay alive. It’s just that a whole lot of cool stuff from a lot of cool companies is probably getting stifled. For better or worse, that’s the hidden cost of free, bundled apps. As Ihnatko says, without competition, “how can we be sure that we’re getting the best software possible?” In all likelihood, you’re not.
