There is an alternative though, using an operating system where the user is in control, not the manufacturer. That is why the Free Software movement and copyleft licenses like the GPL came into life. That is what people like Richard Stallman are fighting for. Sure you lose a bit of convenience, but that price we should be glad to pay.

While I would agree with you on a big picture level (and about would be best for humans), I seriously lost all my interest into computers as devices. They are tools for me to archive my dreams. I buy the ones that seem to be most productive for that. Even if that is not the ethical choice. I did choose other battles to fight. :)
