I am not a pessimist, I always hope for the best, unfortunatly

Yes, my preferred method of lobbying is to publically refuse to
use/purchase thier hardware.  Its unfortunate apple doesn't offer a
choice to buy thier machine with an alternate video card, perhaps if
you replace it with an ATI Rage128 and then call Nvidia for a refund
on the OEM card they might get the point, otoh they would probably
just say `foad' and hang up.
