Yes, of course they can, but that's precisely a political position here. My view is that as long as quality levels are met, who makes an accessory doesn't matter, and shouldn't matter. If the MFI program is just a program for "companies who are friends with apple", I hope people will just start ignoring the "Made for iPhone" sign and buy whatever is advertised as "Tested for iPhone by independent labs"... Also, reading about Iovine reinforces my bad feeling about having a...
For one, you should exercise restraint about calling others "prejudiced". Especially about Apple.Second, quite frankly, your view of the world is to me an extreme, privileged, capitalist one. I prefer a more socialist approach, where huge juggernauts with firing power cannot abuse that firing power in the pursuit of their own interest. It doesn't have any relationship to the platform, since it should engulf all of the makers. Whether Apple, Microsoft, Oracle, Adobe, or...
Note how 19$ seems to be 29 EUR :p
I guess indeed, but that's precisely the kind of things that scare me with Apple.I'm all for Apple enforcing that licensing agreement, but only in the sake of quality (adhering to the standard). When it crosses the line is when "business practices" get involved in what should only be a technical matter. Trains that follow regulations can ride on the tracks, whether or not the train maker is involved in a legal fight with the track maker.
I don't know. I don't like Monster, but while I can understand why "mutually beneficial" doesn't work anymore when A sues B, I do find a bit weird that "Made for iPhone" depends on Apple thinking your product benefits their end goals, not their product itself. Is it "Made for iPhone"? Yes. They said so earlier. They should not be able to change their mind, else what does it mean? Nothing.
That's a developer-side thing, if I remember well.
I bet on "almost everyone". Join the party at developer.apple.com :p
I hope you're right and I'm wrong. I feel such a bad vibe coming from this guy... he scares me.
Hell yes, that's so true. Even presenting at a small venue is bloody hard. I've done that and I hope all copies are gone, because I'm feeling ill just remembering it. Only thing that soothes me is.... since I was bad, people probably forgot all about me. It seems people only remember the good presentations, since what's the point of using brain power for failures? Fact, the "social systems" use the same nerve controls as the "pain systems" in the body, which explains while...
That's a very, very interesting view. Might be a bit "conspiracy theory", but I want to believe this. I prefer wildly an apple that whipped out a boring presentation after a product failed to deliver on time (shit_happens) to an Apple that thinks Apple Music is a game changer worthy of taking the stage at a developer event...
