    To be fair, my Toshiba also received a clean, vanilla install of Win7 Home Premium. So there was no crapware because it didn't come from Toshiba.

    Toshiba seems to be pretty bad. My Toshiba laptop is filled with garbage; and unfortunately, I really don't have the time or sophistication to erase everything and start from scratch.

    I think Apple is just on the vanguard. More and more hardware and software providers are likely to go this route; or so it seems.

    To be honest, I'm a little surprised Apple has tried to block hacked iPhones from using iTunes before. It's the best way I can think of to prevent people from doing something Apple has made it clear it disapproves of.

    On the other hand, even users of hacked iPhones are buying music, and that's something Apple doesn't wants to prevent.
