YEAH, AND THEY REFUSE TO DO 'EM. (And I don't see what that has to do with this; "delta updates" implies "you're only downloading the changed bits, not the whole app each time", rather than anything to do with the content of said updates) Every time I get an update it's the full size of the application OR app…
You're right, and it is annoying. Or at least to those who pay per bit, as opposed to a monthly fee for unlimited access. But yes, for Apple, such an advanced computer company this is quite ridiculous indeed.
That's the one. And they weren't allowed to give it away for free. Some financial restriction for a ...edit, found this:
Apple is required to charge you for the enabler. 802.11n was R & D intensive; it's not your granny's WiFi. You can't amortize R & D costs against new products--in this case, AirPort Extreme and Apple TV--and then give that same R & D away somewhere else. That would create what's called an accounting irregularity, and these aren't popular at places like Apple and Dell just now. The only way to put 802.11n into existing Mac users' hands was to turn it into a product against which R & D could be charged. $1.99 is a token, the very least that Apple could charge you and still call the enabler a product. If Apple hadn't come up with this sound solution, you'd have to buy AirPort Extreme--an extraordinary product, as you'll read in my review--or wait for Leopard in order to get 802.11n.
I understand, but won't it look better if it's perceived as
