Umm… yes you say it like it’s a bad thing to be chained to Apples hardware. Most people are “chained” to Apples hardware because they want to. Because it does not, arguably, suck as much as Android or Windows PC hardware. It’s because of them that PC manufactures are kept on their toes and continue to “try” to “innovate”. You’re so biased it shows through your weak arguments. iTunes is so much better than Windows Media Player. And what did Sony try to do but install malware onto your system to protect its media (remember that one?). That’s PC manufactures for you. Apple may not be your cup of tea, but look around, see anything better? I don’t. And don’t argue that Google somehow won’t try to lock you in, everyone does once they reach critical mass. It’s just business.
