Typical. I work for an apple specialist, and we see this crap all the time: people trying to get out of accidental damage (spillage, drops, etc.) They will lie, fudge, and pretty much sell their first born child to make you think it's the machine's fault, as if machines break and damage themselves. LSI's (Liquid Spill Indicators) are NOT faulty- they clearly show that water damage has occurred. Therefore, I see no reason for apple to do this. It's apple's discretion if...
I don't get it. You can already do this kind of thing with mobileme. Just enable mobileme to work with guest accounts in OS X.
Steve doesn't own H.264, troll. Try again.
In the words of one cybernetic organism: "No way José" Seriously though, buying up a big company has never been apple's style. Not that they couldn't do it, but I don't see apple ever trying to integrate such a large team... apple picks their people carefully and for the most part does everything in-house. Any company apple buys would have to be a PERFECT fit for apple's ecosystem, and I don't see Sony as being anything like that.
I think the more disturbing point going on here is the basic idea that the mac should be like iOS. Isn't the point of making iOS to make a good OS that works for small devices? Otherwise apple could have just squeezed the Mac into a small form factor and called it done. This direction even goes against previous comments by Steve that the reason microsoft failed in the mobile space was because they tried to squeeze windows into a small box instead of redesigning. Now they...
Mac app store is great for apple, sucks for mac developers. Users will start to expect that all mac apps are on the store, and apple will start taking a 30% cut of every mac app sale. That's a crapload of money to apple, for doing essentially nothing but providing hosting space. On top of that you have to deal with apple's BS submission guidelines. Most apps already have built-in autoupdating via sparkle, and for the most part can be uninstalled by dragging to trash, so...
Wow. I know apple wants the world to move away from flash, but this is quite a petty move. Cue a few thousand support phone calls asking why websites aren't loading properly on a brand new computer.
Honestly iWeb and iDVD were the weakest iLife apps, and they are not even bothering to update them. WTF? Something is wrong with the iLife development cycle, if they take 2 years and can only update 3 of the apps.
Only an idiot parent would think they can stop ANYTHING their kid does, short of locking them in their room for the rest of their lives with no technology. If you need that kind of control over your kid, you should seriously seek help. It doesn't matter that kids will find away around the restrictions. If you're a software developer, do you not put any anti-piracy controls in your app, since "everyone will pirate it anyway"? No. Because the restrictions will stop most...
Huh? How is this about apple controlling anything? Where in this patent does it say anything about any of this information being sent to apple servers? This is about handing more control over to parents. You don't have to turn any of these features on. Technology is only a tool, it's how you USE it that makes things good or bad. If you are a bad parent, you will still be a bad parent, regardless of what fancy texting blocklist you have set up. Apple can't make you a good...
