“Google today unleashed its improved [Google Mobile App for Apple iPhone and iPod touch] to the press and supposedly to Apple. But it hasn’t yet hit the Apple store,” Seth Weintraub reports for Computerworld. “What gives?”
“The application was due [as soon as Friday],” Weintraub reports. “However, as I check my watch, it is now Saturday, and I still can’t download this app. Is something up with Apple not wanting its users to have this functionality? Will Apple block iPhone users from this for some reason? Perhaps Apple has a competing technology waiting in the wings?”
MacDailyNews Take: Perhaps Seth can’t comprehend the meaning of “as soon as?”
Weintraub continues, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, it has only been 24 hours. It will probably hit the store any second now. One thing is for certain, time really doesn’t fly when you are hitting refresh on the app store waiting for the coolest app yet.”
