 I think the way that Twitter handles accounts (ie. handles) is truly insane. You can virtually go to any handle that you can think of and it will appear to be taken, yet unused. If you do come across a registered handle that you want, but it's not being used, there's no way to secure it... at all. This is a huge mistake, I think. A missed opportunity on engagement and account uptake.
 Disagree. I recently stopped using Facebook entirely (amazing feat!), and started using Twitter on a daily basis. There are big differences between the two services. With Facebook, I can say "I don't want to see this" (on an advertisement), and it would stop showing me that entirely. No such thing with Twitter... there's so much "noise" to filter through, it still feels very young in its evolution. That said, Twitter is great for keeping apprised of topics and companies...
I think a van covered in cameras should have some identifying marks on them... seems awfully sneaky to be driving an anonymous van around recording everything it sees.... Google StreetView cars are highly visible. How about the other companies?
Hehehe... Giggle.
 No rotten tomatoes from me. I think the "big release once per year" is a flawed approach that Apple is executing poorly on, when it comes to software. I strongly feel that they should move to a more incremental release schedule for software... small improvements at a regular tick throughout the year. That will allow the software to mature and stabilize. The model they use right now makes giant jumps forward, and that leaves roadkill in its path because then they begin...
If there's going to be a tax charged for moving money from one country to another, it should be applied by the country currently housing the money... not the country receiving the money. That's just so backwards! The US should remove all barriers to money flowing INTO their borders. I seriously don't understand a repatriation tax, or even why this is called repatriation. Does the US think the money somehow originated in the US and now they need to bring it back? Oh, give...
 I'm very confused by this. That money was earned overseas. Why does the US feel entitled to a portion of it? That sense of entitlement is what is out of control. If the US removed repatriation tax entirely, allowed foreign funds to be brought into the country tax-free, then guess what – that money would be IN the country, spent IN the country, and a portion of that spent money would be given to the government in the form of taxes. To tax the simple transfer of money is...
Okay Mr. Kasper... "high quality MP3s" -- ??   The songs were purchased from the iTunes Store, so they were not MP3s.. they were MP4s...
Siri for the Mac would be amazing!
Now if Apple would just bring iTunes Radio to more countries. It's articles like this that annoy me... it talks about features (such as buying songs from this widget) that aren't even available right here in the northern neighbour of the US... Canada.
