Even Apple is Not Without Ethical Problems

Here’s the question, is it ethical for a company (in this case Apple) to sell a product to consumers if they are discontinuing the product (in this case Apple TV) shortly in the future?

I purchased an Apple TV on September 6th. To be honest I’ve really liked it so far. I saw an article on Digg today that suggested Apple TV was being dropped.

If I had known the product was going to be dropped from Apple’s product line 24 days after purchasing it I wouldn’t have bought it.

So I went to Apple’s support area, to the discussion for the Apple TV. I made a post asking if anybody knew what was going on with Apple TV. My post was immediately (minutes) removed by Apple!!!!! Talk about censorship.
