It just works ....... see !!!
You are right .... it does just work.
What you don't realise is that Apple have defined what 'work' means and will change that definition as and when they see fit.
You are paying to be allowed to live in the Apple world and follow their way of thinking .......... you don't think you own those iThings do you !!!???
Of course, having bought into the 'Apple Think' you will be totally OK with this.
If not you need to take another Blue pill, no not *that* one, the one with St. Jobs profile on it. :)
