I saw Hugh's tweet that indicated that ALL content would be available, but not information about whether it would be a full blown app, or a webapp (sorry for the pun ). I would be surprised if it was an iStore app, but I guess if it is subscription based, it might be possible. That would keep Apple from "providing porn to children" but still allow adults to use their iDevice how they want.
This was my thought exactly when I saw who was reporting. IF Apple was not preparing a Retina display for iPad 2, all this speculation would make people disappointed when it didn't happen. But how would they put a stop to it? Since they are tight lipped they couldn't just make a press release, but they could pass information to a trusted source that most people would believe. In effect, they get the best of both worlds. They reset people's expectations so that if it...
In a related story, Playboy is offering a special micro-fiber screen cleaning cloth for the first 100 subscribers.
I must have read this differently. What I thought it said was that a certain sub-set of developers didn't follow Apple's guidelines and can their apps be "hacked" by giving them any application receipt as opposed to a receipt that is specific to their app. And as was pointed out earlier, the app would have to come from somewhere other than the app store in the first place. I'm not sure how you got that Apple's authentication system was flawed or broken. It looks like...
The MAS is different than the iOS App store. It is meant to be A place to buy apps not THE place to buy apps. I think people are trying to fault it for being something that it never said it would be. Stevo said it would be the BEST place to learn about apps. Maybe you don't agree that it is best, but it is not trying to be the only. This is like saying that Dell is a fail because you can't touch the machine before you buy it.
I started to put "you say potato, I say potato" but realized that wouldn't make much sense in writing But my machine is a university computer and I don't really know where the licenses come from nor do I want to know, the whole plausible deniability thing and all.
It depends. I have a personal copy of iLife that was recognized as installed. I have an institutional license for iWork and it didn't recognize it. However, another site posted that the Mac App Store can detect a license when you try to buy something you already have. I didn't want to try it with iWork, but supposedly if you purchased an app and then try to purchase it from the Mac App Store, it warns you that you already have it. So you would have to delete the app...
OMG! That was hilarious! Rubin says "it doesn't have any buttons so you can't get lost." And the woman say "well, the iPad only has one button." Then he says "it still can be confusing." No wonder nobody can come up with an iPad killer; they get confused by the presence of one button.
Actually, China is not very advanced on automation. I was in China last year and went to a GM plant in Shanghi. There was little automation because the machines cost a lot more than what it costs to pay dozens of people to do the jobs. I also spent some time in Guangzho (Canton) where much of the worlds electronics are made. You can literally buy products there for pennies on the dollar. I was dumbfounded trying to imagine how a product I might pay $200 could be made...
However, are you saying that Apple should be surprised by fact that people ran with this? Apple has spent years creating a situation where people are desperate for information so that they (Apple) can capitalize on the free promotion. You can't then give them a pass and say it was the rest of the world's fault. This is why our justice system has standards like "reasonable expectation." No, Apple didn't do most of the hyping, but they certainly released the information...
