Shut up for Odin's sake. If we had a nickel for every moron that believed every mundane news article about Company A meant subby was in the pocket of Company A, we could package all you twits up in a rocket and shoot you to the Moon. Apple is the biggest deal in tech right now. Does that offend you? Move to Botswana.
adeelarshad82 writes "Twitter's new iOS-only app, Vine, was prominently featured by Apple as an 'Editor's Pick' in its App Store the day it launched. However, given Apple's policies for adult content, they may have rushed the whole thing since this past Sunday, a number of news outlets ran stories covering the rise of easily-accessible pornography on the new video sharing app. As Joshua Topolsky explains, the situation draws even more attention to the vague and sometimes confusing rules of Apple's App Store guidelines, and more clearly showcases the sporadic and often unusual criteria the iPhone-maker uses to decide the fates of applications. So it will be interesting to see how Apple handles this given that they've never been shy about banning similarly racy apps in the past."
Apple is Evil.
Wozniak had his ay in the sun. His accomplishments are a matter of the historical record of computing. But let's stop pretending Woz has any particularly useful insight into today's Apple. Woz has not had a hand in aching remotely to with Apple in over 30 years. He's good for quote, which is in turn good or hits, but the way the tech press continues to hang on his every word regarding Apple has more to do with a web based traffic model than anything he says being particularly insightful.
About a thousand companies wish they had profits as good that that stone.
Let me explain this to you so it's easy to grasp. You make a thing, you set a price that allows you to recoup costs and make a product, and you put it on the market. Your thing either sells or it doesn't. If it doesn't sell, you either change the product, change your price, or kill it. If your thing sells at the price you set, you make money and stay in business. If your thing sells well, or sells at a rate that makes it difficult for you to fill demand, FOR A FACT, your device is not overpriced. Feel free to proceed to reference Apple's VooDoo marketing and brainwashed Apple zealots or whatever other standard tropes you employ to allow you to refuse to accept that Apple is really good at this "capitalism" thing.
Suck on what? The low end Android little-better-than-feature phones that will be swelling the landfills, or the inability of this market share to translate into a meaningful profit for anyone but the Apple copycat Samsung? Help us out here. Because if anyone out there think Android's market share success is analogous to Microsoft's Windows market share, you are sadly mistaken.
Before you entertain us with your conspiracies, perhaps you could wait to see how the posts rating eventually turns out?
...of these insipid "real work" claims about the requirement for a file browser to do said "work" is sounding more and more like the tech boors who pretended DOS was more efficient than the GUI, and that GUIs made computers "toys". It was ridiculous then, it's new counterpart is ridiculous now. Even moreso in the next few years.
Enough of this mindless twaddle. If you really believe this mindless tripe about "cool" outweighing usefulness you simply don't work with real people. If you do work with real people, it's practically guaranteed you are the insufferable tech snob of whatever group you belong to...
The US has created a system that is terrified that someone, somewhere, is not making money in perpetuity on property they did not create.
Who looks at a market where an incumbent is decimating the competition and thinks "this is the perfect point for us to throw our hat in the ring"? Android was supposed have buried the iPad by spring of this year. The Touchpad was evidence that Apple would soon be elevated to niche status. And yet here we are...
Or is this article entirely backwards from reality? There is something inverse about this idea about ideas.
Yeah, I was reading just the other day of that proprietary Apple plugin technology. I think it was called "HTML5" or something like that. You can't watch ads on your iPhone. Boo Fucking Hoo. Jobs is such a BASTARD!.
That would make sense if too many religionists weren't Hell bent on forcing religion back into aspects of culture we've been successfully removing religion from in the first place.
