I swear I will scream if I have to read one more comment that mentioned how Amazon's Kindle Fire is "just as locked down" as the iPad, like that's a bad thing. Seriously, people…do you complain that your Microwave uses proprietary parts? That you can't run arbitrary programs on your toaster? Seriously?
