So… I assume the EU has pushed the same regulatories onto Apple computers? Apple should not have iTunes or Safari pre-installed either, like the rest of the world. Stupid europeans…

Agree! Let alone the pre-installed Safari and ITunes, just try and do any hardware add-ons/customizing let alone software. You can’t even change the battery yourself!

As much as I think that people should have the free browser choice, I think the EU goes way too far. Microsoft was verdicted way back when internet was relatively young (to the common user). In the ’13′s, people do know how to change the browser. Except our EU fossils, appearantly.

I live in The Netherlands and therefore bound to the EU regulations. Mostly it is quite okay, but at times like this, I am ashamed for that.
