  To be fair, I find it damned annoying that I can't remove some of the unwanted and unused apple Apps on my iPhone. Can't even hide them. And when someone produces an App to do this, it gets withdrawn from the App store.
  You've quoted the 2 extra - a Samsung and DropBox account. I'm curious, if anyone knows what the nine are - or is this exaggeration?   I wouldn't crow about 'having to sign up the dropbox account'. iCloud is so poor for document sharing, even with (or especially with) Apple's iWork suite, that DropBox or similar is pretty mandatory for a lot of iOS users.    Edit: I guess Amazon for eBooks could be another one.
You've left Palm out of the picture. They were producing some decent stuff at the time. Better than the early MS offerings. Palm had lots of developers and a wide range of Apps.But they stood still, and failed to modernise their antiquated classic OS in time. When WebOS arrived it was too late - customers and developers had switched to iPhones & Blackberries.
  I'd accept even file compatibility, never mind full feature for feature compatibility.   I've long used iWork, and AppleWorks before it (since ClarisWorks 2!) Features are fine on the desktop.   But iWork document synchronisation with iOS via iCloud is a joke - primarily as the iOS versions are not writing full versions of the documents.   It's more convenient for me to use Office2 from Byte2 combined with DropBox - a sad state of affairs.    Maybe if Apple had...
  This. People should relax. Apple has done this successfully before. They are never going to do 'cheap and nasty', or join or a race to the bottom. They brought out iPods at different price points, and maintained quality. They've brought the iPad mini, and that's selling well at a lower price point without being 'cheap'. Sure, there are compromises by comparison with the top models, but gains in terms of portability.   It is not only good business sense because Apple...
  Well it's hardly surprising is it. The context of Job's 'thermo-nuclear' remark was riling against the stolen product ... the OS/advertising cash-cow that is Android ... against Google. Apple has been aiming it's legal-missiles against device manufacturers/android licencees. A few, but most against Samsung as the design of their hardware has aped the iPhone/Pad/Pod-touch closer than others. I'm not a lawyer (thankfully), but I have heard the reasons commonly trotted out...
Shouldn't the headline read Apple grabs more than 99% of the global PC market?   I mean, Apple alone in the cosmos reports what is sells.    I thought that every other company just make products, ship them to resellers, and nobody ever buys them.   None.   They just disappear ...
  Hilarious comment this. iPod aside, chasing niches is all that Apple does.     Simple fact of life is that people have their own personal preferences about screen size, and the closely correlated device size. This is true of smartphones, as it is true of Notebook computers, as it is true of tablets.   Apple recognises this in the last two categories, offering multiple screen sizes in iPads and MacBooks. Time for them to offer more choice with the iPhone. Otherwise they...
  Good post until we got to here. The data shows the opposite: Amazon's tablet market share declined significantly. They did well at first - a trusted brand, good media support, but above all by selling really cheap - at cost and pre-iPad mini. Amazon seems to have lost this initial advantage to Google Nexus and Samsung. And this despite expanding into significant markets that the Fire wasn't available in a year back.
  Or should it? Of course a developer has a large responsibility.   But as the seller, Apple has responsibility too - especially given that Apps have to go through a stringent approval process, which Apple touts as a major benefit of the iOS platform.    Seeing as Apple is so keen to take a 30% cut, maybe they should pay 30% of damages (should it be the case) and the developer 70%.
