As for me, I feel Apple's business practices are unfriendly both to developers and users and so I won't buy their products (e.g. Apple's restrictive app rules and ability to reject apps for almost any reason; their lawsuits against Samsung et al; the fact that their Chinese workers are far underpaid while iPhones have far higher profit margins than products from any other manufacturer... oh yeah, and I don't think eliminating buttons is the answer to every UI design problem )
