Sister Steven Oh The Time Has Come…

March 22, 2010

A few weeks ago I wrote about whether or not Apple will allow the iPad to be an “Open Market” for content providers other than Apple’s own iBooks.

So I did a bit more investigative research, and found out that the good news is that at least for now, the answer is Yes. The bad news? Sister Steven isn’t going to allow you to consume anything naughty. Bad content supplier, Bad! WHACK! You shall now recite the iPad End-User License Agreement ten times as your penance. Thank you Sister Steven, can I have another?

We Officially Terminate our Oath of Fealty to Insane Greatness

February 24, 2010

Ah, Adobe. Poor Adobe.

Things between Adobe and Apple used to be just peachy. Indeed, almost from the very day the company formed in 1982, it was destined to be the premier supplier of content creation software for the Macintosh, which launched only two years later, in 1984. We all remember what happened in 1984, at least those of us who aren’t Milennials.

Kindle Applications? Really? Now?

January 22, 2010

So, Bezos, lemme get this straight. You waited TWO YEARS to launch a Kindle developer program, a week before Jobs launches iPad/iSlate/Jesus Tablet?

Talk about too little, too late.

Want to make Steve Jobs’ head explode? There’s a phone for that!

Many carriers and device manufacturers have claimed to have iPhone-killers. They tried and failed to unseat the giant, which has a huge following of users and a massive application store. But right now, at least in the United States, iPhone is tied to AT&T Wireless, which has been riddled with 3G coverage problems, much to the frustration of the company’s subscribers.

Earlier this year Burger King had a Whopper Sacrifice promotion where if you de-friended 10 of your friends on FaceBook, you received a coupon for a free Whopper burger. Amazingly, a huge amount of people were willing to do this. However, I suspect that for a free iPhone 3G S with two free years of data and voice service — assume it’s the upper-end, 32GB model — that more serious, heinous acts of inhumanity would be willing to be committed by the average iPhone junkie.

What’s Your Preferred Orifice for Wireless Carrier Sodomy?

June 10, 2009

This week, Apple did the unthinkable — it lowered the price of the existing 8GB iPhone 3G to a mere $99.00. And the world rejoiced, praise be The Fruit and he who no longer weareth the black turtleneck. Yes, I too noticed Schiller was wearing a grey Oxford and Jeans instead of the usual Silicon Beatnik uniform.

Perlow, you cheap whiny bastard

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes and I duke it out over at ZDNet regarding Apple and their (lack of) netbook strategy. I say they should license Mac OS X to Dell and the Chinese/Korean netbook manufacturers, and he says that I’m a whiny cheapskate and that Apple should stay on target.

Head on over to ZDNet.com for the commentary.

Pondering a world without Steve Jobs

June 18, 2008

I’m not going to theorize on whether or not Jobs’ pancreatic cancer has returned, is having a prolonged recovery from his Whipple procedure, or whether Apple is hiding the real truth of the situation, as many have suggested. Rather, I think some consideration should be taken as to whether or not Apple has formed an effective transition strategy, and has adequately prepared for the worst case scenario. What does Apple look like without Jobs?
