Sayeth Steve Jobs: You know, there’s a porn store for Android. Anyone can download them. You can, your kids can. That’s just not a place we want to go. But then, there’s this: What is that? It’s the Porn Store for iPhone, aka “The App Store.” Get real. Apples doesn’t want you to run Apps […]
Yesterday, after the Apple presentation “Come See Our Latest Creation,” geeks and bloggers worldwide took to their medium of choice to complain about the underwhelming iPad and its impending failure. I’ve seen all sorts of arguments for why this device will fail, but I’m convinced that this device is going to make them all red […]
Why is it that I can connect my iPhone to my work computer and stream music over the air from my home computer to my speakers at work and be legit, but I can’t have my iPhone look like this without breaking the iPhone terms of service? It’s my phone, Apple. Let me control it.
At Kroc’s request, I’m compiling a list of what Apple will have to do to win me back. It’s not a long list, and it may not be exhaustive (meaning I may arbitrarily add more to it), but here goes: It’s time to regulate App Store approval process. Consistency and transparency needs to be key. […]
I just sent this letter to Apple via their feedback form. Those of you that know me know that this is a big deal for me. I am the owner of many generations of Apple products.

Slashgear, and many other sites, are today posting a story about “Jibbler,” the alleged code-name of the voice control subsystem present in iPhone OS 3.0. If this is the case, let me gently and professionally say “HALLE-FRICKIN-LUJAH!” It’s about time the most amazing and groundbreaking mobile device ever had a proper hands-free solution.
I called iPhone OS 3.0 a few months ago. I said we should expect the next release of iPhone firmware to be a revamped version 3.0. I still feel fairly confident in my predictions: I still think we’ll see cut-copy-and-paste, better app management, and better enterprise management. I’m still convinced that we will not see […]
Someone is going to sue Apple in the not-too-distant future for their inconsistent and subjective App Store approval process. I think they violate many anti-competitive practices.
