I think you raise a valid point. In the world of IT, we're accustomed to the logical and obvious nature of everything. Since we don't think of the subconscious or unintended results of areas such as design, we tend to forget that it still has an effect on the users.

I own a "dumb" phone. I also own three desktop computers and a laptop. I figure the primary use for any cell phone is to make calls, and if I need to make sure I'm connected to the Internet while I'm away from home, I have either my laptop or any other number of possibilities (i.e., local library, Internet cafe, friends' computers, etc.) to get connected. I use my cell phone to make calls, because that's what it's primary use is.

Considering the two sites mentioned in the synopsis, the first thing I thought of was that these were sites that were supposedly no longer listing copyrighted materials. So the question to me then became, "Is there copyrighted material being shared under fake, non-copyrighted names? If I download 'Nasty.Old.People_2009_TS3.dvd.iso', am I really getting the Creative Commons-licensed movie, or am I getting 'Toy Story 3' because I read on some hacker site that the fake name is just a way to distribute the copyrighted movie?"

They review on the order of 10,000 apps a week.

They say that 95% of apps get approved within one week. That means that about 500 apps a week are rejected for various reasons.

I'm not sure your math is correct. Just because Apple says that 95% of apps get approved within one week doesn't specifically mean that it's 95% of all the apps submitted. As far as I can tell, the only fact that statement shows is that 95% of all the approved apps are approved within one week; the number of approved apps could be 25%, 50%, 75%, or even 99% of the submitted apps.
