quote: Once you own any one of Apple's product line....you HAVE to use Itunes. There are no other choices in that ecosystem for all within its collective...unless you hack your IProduct. Read Apples Terms of Agreement (TOA) and you will learn they can cancel your account and delete all your content with no further responsibility to you. Google does not force/require you to use their market place or any proprietary software. They provide YOU with the power to uncheck an option that will then allow you to purchase from other market places. Try that with Apple. YOU CAN'T.
