It's only painful if you don't know how to do it. After I learned exactly what to do, it's just a pattern and one that I liked, and still like to have control over.  I can choose when things are stored in memory and when to remove them. Maybe I'm just a little sick in the head, but I sort of like that level of control.
God I hope so. I think Apple should heavily invest into their own ecosystem. But then again, that was one of the issues that befell them before in history. I think there are good reasons to remain open, but they could always sell it to the public as a protection of privacy.
Hey at least there's now a use case for all those crap Android devices out there.
I'm thinking a company that has revolutionized several devices in the last few decades can probably do most things it sets out to do successfully. I wouldn't underestimate a company with ambition, clout and $700 billion dollars of cash in the bank. Just saying.
Sorry. I don't think this is terribly confusing for anyone. Sure there are people who have no clue about technology that it may confuse, but then again... They are probably used to being confused and simply go ask their 13 year old nephew what to do.
The package is usually compressed a bit, but remember that an app is both the application files and any data. So you could create a small app that then downloads additional assets later, or is used to store the user's data.
Oh hey Snowden, is that you? I'll let you get back to your tinfoil hat collection.
Remember that this was announced to investors. We already know that investors are finicky people that listen to analysts when they tell them that GTAT is going to produce sapphire to cover every iPhone and iPad on earth. The reason why Corning is taking "digs" is to turn investors away from any kind of sapphire venture, and invest in Corning.  It's just business really.  There's only so much money for investment and Corning wants it so they are putting their best foot...
None of us were present at the conversation. Gorilla Glass was developed in the 60's but didn't have a use. Steve met with Corning and they discovered that they did have a product. Steve may not have even bothered to "lock in", or Corning - knowing what they had - made the deal pretty plain.  If you have the patent, you're not going to sign into some dumb contract when you can sell to the world.  In that case, Corning was incredibly wise and deserving of the windfall with...
As a developer I can tell you that the iOS 8 rollout was the worst they've ever had.  I've been developing apps since iOS 2.0 and my main app since iOS 3.2 (iPad) and iOS 8 rolled out with terrible bugs that caused serious issues.  Some of those bugs are still not fixed and it's not something that we can workaround.   If you are interested in reading some of the issues we had run into, check out our blog posts (yes we need to update that blog) http://blog.onsongapp.com
