As someone else mentioned, rear camera is 960x720 for stills. Disappointing, but hardly deal-breaking.
Millions of people go to theaters with no x-rated films, but then buy them elsewhere and watch them on standardized devices universally compatible (DVDs).But you can't do that on an iPhone because there is only 1 store.Sure, you can go to the Android Marketplace, but then you have to throw away your investment in apps, movies, and books (and cannot resell them to make back your investment). And start a new 2-year phone contract in addition to finishing your existing one...
Which is why they should rate content, not filter it.The MPAA is not responsible for violence or sex in movies, it just rates them.Apple, with a monopoly store for its platform (iOS) should get out of the filtering business, or open it up to other stores.What if a theater chain only showed movies that it approved of *and* the only movies you could play on your DVD player had to be approved by them? I.e., your DVD player was locked to one movie chain. And you couldn't sell...
Does anyone here read other people's posts, or do you all just spout out repeated nonsense? As I already said, a web app is in no way comparable to a native app. As just one example, you cannot upload photos via a web app. That's not a relevant answer.
Did you even read what I wrote? Not one of those cell phones will play movies, books, or apps from my phone. And I am unable to sell my movies, books, or apps because of DRM and Apple's licensing and platform specificity. So saying "just buy a different phone" is completely disingenuous. It's simply not an option.
Except that my eyes and brain do not have DRM or platform-specificity. If I can't get Playboy or Out magazine at Walmart, I can get it somewhere else or directly from the publisher. I cannot get some applications for my iPhone or iPad because (a) Apple bans them from its store and (b) it's a monopoly store for that platform. They can't have it both ways. And skip the HTML5/web app argument. There are lots of things (like photo uploading) that can't be done with a web app...
So how do you create a web app that uploads photos to your web site from your iPhone, if Mobile Safari doesn't support it? A web app is not just an HTML version of an App Store app. There are many things a web app can't do. They are not equivalent.
Excellent post, professor. I downloaded a medical app for my iPad, and it had a "naked" man and woman, and you could click on different parts for different diagnoses. Well both man and woman had no genitals. What does a little kid think if they look at this and they see that they have a hole (girls) or a worm (boys) where the models have nothing? "OMG, mommy, I have a terrible disease!". Jeez, there is nothing wrong with the human body.Why? If your kids are pre-pubescent,...
Well I guess we're just going in circles, because my last 3 posts addressed all of your it's-not-Apple's-fault lines of reasoning.
Others may be, but I'm certainly not "struggling to voice those complaints". My complaints are detailed and specific. (Where is solipsism now?)This is nothing like the PC industry. Sure, if you buy a PC and switch to a Mac, you'll have to re-purchase some software. In some cases, though, such as Adobe, you can switch your license for a small fee. This can't be done when switching to Android. why? Because Apple does not give software sellers any information (not even an...
