    @danielpunkass @marc Also, not helpful if the customer or the app relies on App Store-exclusive features.

      @iconmaster @jaredsinclair I've found none I'm happy with. Sorry. I just deal with wearing only my Darn Tough wool socks (which are awesome).

        @mcdado “personal opinion”.

          Some have defended Eich’s promotion by saying “what if a right-wing group boycotted a pro-gay company?” Fine by me. Gay bashers should try boycotting Apple for Tim Cook’s (alleged) gayness. It would accomplish nothing except make them look pathetic.

              @jaredsinclair I'm gonna call "no way" on this. We've feared that machines would write movies/TV/books since the 19th century. It's just not actually cheaper or simpler or better.

                @raza That's… worse than I expected.

                  I've heard many times that the latest version (and possibly the previous versions) of Apple TV OS basically run everything as one app. Does anyone know of an authoritative source for this claim?

                    @zev @riposte @berg Breaks on the ADN site, too. Odd, I see plenty of URLs with commas…

                      Every now and then, The Onion bungles up their tech pieces pretty badly. “Working with programmers”? http://www.theonion.com/articles/apple-to-diversify-emojis,35650/

                        @jmreekes @conlan The guillotine seems like the only solution here, really

                          @conlan #CancelColbert was sorely misguided. What they clearly should’ve asked for was #ExecuteColbert.

                            @zev @marc I’ve never understood what people had against 10.10 (other that it being a large number). Clearly these aren’t decimal numbers, otherwise we wouldn’t have 10.9.1.

                              @marc Another good move by Adobe: the subscription model makes versions mostly moot. For support purposes, you just use the build number.

                                Anything that’s in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary. Anything that’s invented between when you’re 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary. Anything invented after you’re 35 gets bought by an advertising company.

                                  @jaredsinclair I'm having a goldilocks problem with this: if I'm just going to the coffee shop, I don't bring a charger at all. If I'm going on a trip, clearly I need more than one extra charge. So…

                                    @conlan @jaredsinclair I’d also say Spotify is for people who like friends’ playlists, social playlists, etc. That’s not me, thoug—I’m all Rdio.

                                      @danielpunkass @dalton @manton I also suspects that IF Apple converts many of its buying customers to subscribers, their revenue will plummet. The whole appeal is low, low prices.
