Again, no reason to start the debate, but I don't mind a central management station (in the form of iTunes) for all of my iOS devices, which includes an old 60GB iPod Photo, iPhone 3G 16GB, iPhone 4 32GB, iPhone 4 32GB, iPad 2 64GB, and iPad 2 32GB. I plug in to automatically charge, sync and backup as needed and I can manage what and why goes on each device. Not a big deal. It's also not like things like the music are copy protected anymore either, so it's not like I can't play those things elsewhere when the need arises. As for the apps, they work on whatever iOS devices I own that I choose to put them. I don't feel restricted, which combined with the excellent UI and app availability, adds up to a win in my book.
