Thank you very much for your patience and your help. I think I understand it now. I'm fairly new on the technical end of the internet and am striving to learn as much as possible about the general kismet. You have been of much help.
Thank you, that cleared up a lot.
You're saying that they're using Webkit (as opposed to a skinned Safari)? Also, how is it that iCab has enabled downloading of files? Is it just that they added a script that tells the browser to store the next linked object into the app's local storage as opposed to the temp storage? I know that iCab has added a lot of features not in mobile Safari and am wondering how that is possible if they can't edit the runtime or add scripting.
You know, I'm quite intrigued by the concept behind Opera Mobile. It is a terrific idea to render the page on the server and merely send an image of it to the device. I'm not sure if that is exactly how it works (how do you click links?) but such is how I've heard it explained. Also, Apple can never reject it if they don't submit it. I think they're just trying to make a big stink so that when they do submit it, Apple will be "forced" into accepting it. We'll see.
You know, if that's true, would that mean we could see Google Chrome one here too, because it also uses Webkit?
That is an outright lie. I have downloaded over 10 free web browsers from the app store in addition to buying one. I currently use iCab Mobile for $1.99 which is incredibly useful. I use it for downloading and storing offline webpages. It is fully functional and not banned. I hate it when people misrepresent Apple's stance on an issue. (The only unverified rumor I have heard is that they only allow Webkit based browsers, not other based ones like Opera, but I'm not sure...
Lol, I just thought about why the Home Button/Power Button screenshot might not work (it didn't in the test units at the demo). When reading a book, I could just take screenshots of pages as I read them and then mass email them to my friends or others. Wow, didn't think about that.
Is it just me, or is the guy who narrates that clip about the silliest thing since Peewee Herman? It's almost like he's trying to sound like an incompetent fool.
That was quick.
Nice. Quote: "Zoals de waard is, vertrouwt hij zijn gasten." Literal translation: "Like the innkeeper is, so he trusts his guests." Meaning: "A person who is untrustworthy is unlikely to trust others." English equivalent: "You measure other people's cloth by your own yard." Personally, all the surveys I have seen point to 50-60% of all responders most likely buying an iPad. That is from about 80,000 people on 6-7 sites. I am definately buying one for college and grabbing...
