John Gruber on disabled Internet sharing in iTunes 4.0.1

Once again, John Gruber tells it like it really is in an item on Apple’s recent decision to disable the Internet sharing capabilities of iTunes 4 in the 4.0.1 update. (You can still share your tunes on your local network.)

The reaction of someone like Cory Doctorow was utterly puerile. Apple had absolutely no choice but to disable the feature, and they made no claims about the disabling being an “enhancement.” I find it mind-boggling that such a widely-read blog writer could make such irresponsible statements.
