You just realized this?

 

The FIRST thing I do is disable all that shit with the quickness. I prefer to do my own updates, thank you very much.

I dated a chick like that in my teens. She wasn't gangster but her fam was. Even got a gun pulled on me. Crazy wimmins love me.

 

Good times.

I'm on a Mac right now.

 

They're okay. A little locked in for my taste.

 

I do like having this handy....

They're not bad. Macs, that is.

 

Truth is, I'm not too familiar with them. I think PCs are a lot more versatile. Macs aren't very easy or much fun to hack.

 

Plus, I don't like Steve Jobs. Never had, never will. I think he's a genius, but I think he jocks himself a lot when he should be listening to his customer base.

 

Case in point. The iPhone. Amazing piece of hardware. Not surprising, that's what Apple excels at. But, he makes it very difficult to hack, and a lot of early adopters do just that with new platforms.

 

People figure out ways around this. The jailbreak, and so on...informal dev teams start working on new apps. Good stuff. Nerds like me are excited, think about getting one when they get cheaper and the bugs are worked out.

 

Of course, Apple does an update, and what do you know? They shoot themselves in the foot...some of the unlocked phones don't work after the automatic firmware update, and Apple is claiming they don't have to honor the warranty because the TOS wasn't honored when the phone was unlocked (or something to that effect). People go nuts. Who owns the $500 phone they bought- them, or Apple? So, Apple reverses its position, but only under threat of a class-action lawsuit they had NO hope of winning.

 

Now, the SDK is coming out next year. That means anyone can develop for the iPhone. But, does that mean that the iPhone is going to be unlocked once the SDK comes out? Or will developers have to upload their code to Apple, who then bundles it or releases it on an update? Who owns the code then? Is it open source, or proprietary? Do the developers get paid?

 

Stay tuned.
