I do have to agree that the term walled garden is completely inaccurate to models companies like Apple are pushing towards. More accurate would be calling it a cell block; you gotta do what the warden wants, when the warden wants, regardless of how arbitrary it is. Apple's push towards centralization is why my mac mini is now sitting unplugged on a shelf -- it's becoming harder and harder to do neat things under the apple system because you have to ask for permission every five minutes.
