Do you feel that this could be another bad move for Apple? Isn't proprietisation what kept Apple from seeing a large marketshare years ago?

Apple knows how to perform with its own system. But to segregate itself from a system made up of large collegiates within the internet world, seems like a huge middle finger that I don't think is beneficial at this time. I think they are reacting quite prematurely. The whole point of a smartphone, is to access the internet. Snubbing the providers of key content, makes me cringe at what may happen.
