What's the bug up Apple's @$$?

,----[ Quote ]
| In late February, Apple purged 6,000 apps 
| it deemed "too sexy." Late last month, 
| Jobs posted a scathing 1,700-word essay on 
| Apple's Web site about why he hates Adobe 
| Flash.

Anthony Doesburg: Apple's antics starting to leave a sour taste

,----[ Quote ]
| Was it a colossal overreaction by Apple 
| when a prototype of its next iPhone fell 
| into the hands of gadget-obsessed US 
| website Gizmodo?
| Combine that with Apple boss Steve Jobs' 
| uncompromising "Thoughts on [Adobe] Flash" 
| statement a fortnight ago, and the 
| question arises: is the darling of the 
| high-tech world in danger of displacing 
| Microsoft as the company people love to 
| hate?
| Yes and no; and yes and no again. 
| Naturally enough, it depends on your point 
| of view, but some points of view matter 
| more than others.


Why Can't Apple Just Drop the 'Leaked' iPhone 4G Inquiry?

,----[ Quote ]
| Given that over 80 per cent of respondents 
| in the report claim to use their Ipads for 
| web browsing and almost 50 per cent for 
| viewing video, areas in which Flash is 
| particularly pervasive, it's not 
| surprising that users find lack of support 
| for the format annoying.

Steve Jobs Spars With Valleywag Editor By E-Mail

,----[ Quote ]
| Steve Jobs has gone rogue. Taking the bait 
| on a late-night e-mail from Valleywag 
| Editor Ryan Tate, Jobs defended Apple's

| porn," among other things.

| employees tried to take their own lives this
| year, but failed.

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple CEO Steve Jobs intervened in the Case
| of the Purloined iPhone, personally contacting
| Gizmodo editor Brian Lam to ask for the
| return of the missing iPhone 4G prototype.
| That tidbit - told by Apple general counsel
| Bruce Sewell to Detective Matthew Broad of
| the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office - was
| revealed today by the unsealing of the search
| warrant behind the search of Gizmodo editor
| Jason Chen's home. A copy of the full set of
| search warrant documents can be found here

| according to court documents made public
| Friday.


Bear and Monkey smack Apple with patent suit

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple has been slapped with another patent
| infringement lawsuit - but the suit says more
| about the festering sore that is the US
| patent system than it does about the
| individual patents involved.
| The lawsuit was filed by Austin, Texas
| inventor Eric Gould Bear, President and CEO
| of interface design firm MonkeyMedia. The
| core of his infringement claim is that his
| patents cover a user-interface concept that
| he calls "Seamless Contraction" - essentially
| a set of techniques to narrow the display of
| information to that which is most "salient,"
| to use his term, to the user's needs.
