As your daughter grows a little bit older and more independent minded, from 5% to 75% say, she will surely appreciate the 150,000 supplementary choices offered by the Appstore, won't she? When she hears her parents groaning and moaning in the distance, she'll know that Evo's battery is playing tricks on them. She'll just hum along on cruise control and reflect casually on the precocious wisdom of the silent minority.
Being both a realist and an idealist is compatible and synergetic. It brings a lot of zest into my life with little residual after effect. I harness the Future for its lensing effect on the Present. Apple and I have been in tune for the past 20 plus years and, Human Nature and all, we both have flaws and failings. By and large, it has been a profitable and constructive partnership for both of us. Apple is one of those rare public entities that celebrate Form and Substance...
Apple+Idealism=Profits, the Business Model I believe in! Google-Idealism=Profits, the Business Model you're comfortable working with. You believe it's a rat race out there; the purse to the sleazy... I'd put my money on the Unicorn in a horse race; the purse to the dreamy...
Free apps are great. Surely they are well worth offshoring our Privacy concerns to the Google and Facebook of this LaLaLand of ours. Let them handle it. They know money doesn't grow on trees and People's lives are so much better managed by thee. An open and free market place is the way to go. Regulations and constraints are so 'Obama' and 'Jobs', so socialist and paternalist, so anti-free-enterprise and anti-geeks; why don't we cut them to size and let Hell break...
Honesty and accuracy is irrelevant when you talk about rumors and speculations. Truths, facts and context will eventually come out in the open. Apple's fate doesn't rest on petty grievances. Industrial espionage and control over products development cycles are keys to unlocking the mystery. There might be a lot more actors in this Drama than the Blogosphere and the Medias care to look for. I guess the Legal Authorities are on to something beyond the chattering noise of the...
Apple is guilty in the Court of public opinion. It cannot ever be a victim. It's called Handicapping creative talent to level the playing field. The Corporate Media calls it as it should be: Apple's brilliance trumps common business practice and therefore must be slowed to allow fairness to alleviate tip scaling genius. Gizmodo went to the Court of Public Opinion and its spin apparatus to take on Apple. They broke the law and bragged about it because it helped them make...
We have a Legal battle on our hands here: Endgadget Legal Counsel says it's a no go! Gizmodo's unofficial Legal Counsel Dr.No says it's a no show! In matters of Information counterfeiting, after all, they both should know...
My point? You have no idea what you are missing. But I guess it doesn't matter does it. If you don't know what your missing, then you don't miss it do you?! Adobe's Position - Write software in Flash and deploy it on multiple platforms at the sametime so that everyone can enjoy and benefit. Apple's Position - We'll have none of that. We're too good for that. Good luck with that position.[/QUOTE] iPhone os (Flash free iPhone + iPod touch + iPad...
So, hop on or jump off! Neither I nor Apple will lose sleep over it. Objective-C and iAd it shall be for the resourceful and ambitious developers. There is nothing like a good reward for an honest day's work. Deep pockets trump Ideology; 24 hours news cycles nurture ridicule.
