  1. I-Phone Dev Center? Who cares? The Zune phone is on its way and we all know how Microsoft and their fantastic visionary Steve Ballmer feel about developers. My suggestion for developers is that they start coding now for Zune phone. Apple doesn’t have a clue.

    The website Apple should be posting is the Apple Matte Center. Apple’s continued attack on their 2 or 3 customers is scandalous and abusive. This time it’s glossy screens which show reflections and might cause blindness. They’re everywhere in Cupertino’s me-too product mix: I-Phone, I-Pod and MACs. Nice innovation, Apple. Harmful glossy screens.

    Your potential. Our passion.™

  2. I think that M$ innovated their “points” concept from hotdogs – you know…10 hot dogs in a pack, but only 8 buns in a pack. So you buy two packs of buns and have to figure out what to do with the extra six. But they won’t keep, so the next time you have to buy another two packs of hot dog buns again.

    The also borrowed from the arcade idea of tokens. Plugging tokens into machines seemed less like spending cash than plugging in actual quarters. Also, any extra tokens were useless except in the arcade. Spending generic “points” that don’t translate neatly to dollars serves the same purpose, in my opinion.

  3. And, Zune Tang, the fact that your posts are always near the top makes me think that you have nothing better to do than sit there all day and write tongue-in-cheek sarcastic comments, which is fine. I just don’t see any money in it.

    You on welfare?
