You wanna start a war with TS on Apple Naming? BTW, I wonder when they will announce iPhone 5?
Hah, thanks for reminding me. I was looking for the Stedelijk Museum sunday. Apple Maps actually places two markers for it, both wrong. I mean, fine. It's just a major tourist point.   Admittedly, they're not very far off, but  it was cold and windy, and I slipped badly on ice due to following the directions of Maps which tremendously annoyed me. yeah, I know, I could have asked around, but what's the point of carrying a mapping software then? So, I'm not exactly...
Looks like a construction site.
Ugly building...
Companies do force you to use MS software. Try justifying to your boss that you broke the Excel sheet/Docx formatting because "Libreoffice". And small companies don't actually pay for your software. Sometimes, you even buy your own hardware...
Can I have a title? Please please?   I'd like "Chasing Shadows": I'm Lightknight, I'm a self-professed fool, and this.   Thanks :D  
Make one, Apple makes that dead easy. Really.   Install XCode. Create project. Build interface in interface builder. Fill up PList with quotes. Link PList to interface. Push to Appstore.
That's a very american point of view actually. Europeans, and chiefly Asians, have a different view on this in particular. I recently went to  several theater plays (an old art form, with live actors performing on a stage)  in Paris. The plays were 100 to 400 years old. They were art and they were enjoyable. The american public would see them as moldy and outdated.   That's why globalization is a bad thing, erasing local preferences. Of course, this is an opinion...
How the hell did I miss that...
This.   It anyway fits in the whole point I've been making that Apple's success is less about appearance (even though what they build is gorgeous), or innovation, than it is about simplicity. Time Capsule is a (quite expensive) very nice exemple of that: buy it, click three buttons, forget about it until the day you need it.
