ok...but...why would apple want to limit the use of their device? or control the pricing structure or the carriers, what do they get out of it (other than control)...

from apple marketing...here is a "great" device, stream movies, be active with social media, share stuff, post on the net, talk on the phone (some at the same time as you surf) but only a little bit...huh?

seems that limiting device use would benefit the carrier, not the manufacutrer of the device...

please clarify...
