get a life
Oh I have one and it's quite good thank you very much. Oh, and mine includes a sense of humor.
Well, they don't restrict everything...http://www.techi.com/2011/07/the-apple-store-allows-nearly-anything-even-goats/
Lol, this is something that still holds true today.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEiHHyps-NE#t=1m56s
The more i think about it, the more this sign bothers me. It's not even remotely humorous, but it is misleading. These "issues" are much ado about nothing:"No Free software" - That's a lie, pure and simple. There is plenty of free software available for OS X and Mac OS."No Installing Apps from the web" - I assume this refers to iOS devices, as it's not true for OS X. Yes, Apple does require that iOS apps (paid and free) be obtained through the App Store. So what? There are something like 400,000 apps to chose from, and the app store makes download, installation, and updates painless. What is the problem?"No sharing Music or books." - I'm not sure that is strictly true. Apple stopped applying DRM to iTunes music purchases a few years ago in exchange for allowing the record companies to jack up the prices of new releases. Unprotected PDFs and books in epub format view just fine on iOS. I'm no fan of DRM, but it's not Apple's fault. If there are DRM issues, go complain to the publishers."We can remotely disable your apps and media" - In the case of apps, it is important that if a malicious app somehow gets through the App Store screening process, that Apple can quickly nip it in the bud. This is a good thing. Has Apple ever even disabled anybody's media or purchased apps?
And by the way, a few dozen more malware-infested apps just showed up in Google Marketplace. Good thing that Google has an app kill switch too (another instance of copying a good idea from Apple)...http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/2011/06/droiddream-light-a-malware-nightmare-booted-from-android-market-encumbered-boobies-out-of-android-marketdroiddream-light-an-malware-nightware-booted-from-android-market.ars
Hey Brett, did you read the DATE on that article. It's from 2 months ago. Whoops!
Mea culpa. I screwed up there.But that doesn't change the main fact that having a kill switch in the app store is a good idea, and that Apple is not alone in doing so.
Wow Brett. You love nit-picking at every single thing this blog has to offer. I've never seen someone so anally retentive in my life. Lmao.
Yeah, he can be a bit intense. His arguments usually don't have much to back them up imo, but on the positive side they are long and add content to the blog. It's all good.
Some funny stuff: A lot of complaints about Apple CS.http://twitter.com/#!/search/apple%20sucks
