9 surprising reasons mobile apps get rejected from the Apple app store | VentureBeat

by gregg
Apple’s App Store review process is designed to keep the app ecosystem healthy and to protect users from low-quality or hostile apps. And the system mostly works. But sometimes an app is rejected for reasons you might not expect, and it can force developers to scramble to either push back launch dates or even have to redevelop key features.

Nudity, e-books and censorship: How Apple became Big Brother - The Globe and Mail

by gregg
“Their guidelines prohibit sexual content or imagery aimed at creating sexual arousal,” Lauridsen says. “But our books are in no way pornographic or intended to create sexual arousal. We didn’t think it would be an issue.”

La vie de Steve Jobs - Manga - Editions Tonkam

by sbrothier & 1 other
1965. Steven Paul Jobs a tout juste dix ans. C’est un enfant farceur, intelligent et déjà passionné d’électronique. Il rencontre au lycée un autre Steve, Steve Wozniak, lui aussi passionné. En lisant un article du magazine Esquire, ils apprennent comment fabriquer un appareil permettant de passer gratuitement des appels longue distance en fraudant les compagnies téléphoniques. Les deux amis décident d’en produire et de les vendre 150 dollars dans leur lycée. C’est le début de la marque à la pomme qui s'étendra sur toute la surface du globe.

No, Apple doesn't own the mobile "page turn" - CBS News

by sbrothier
(MoneyWatch) Yet another technology pundit has lauded Apple (AAPL) for patenting a widely used feature in mobile devices that ostensibly will let the consumer electronics giant pound tablet and smartphone rivals into submission. Looking at a recent design patent awarded to Apple, the New York Times' Nick Bilton declares that the company "now owns the page turn." The "turn" is the animation that makes it look as though you're turning a physical page when reading an e-book or some other electronic document.

Apple Now Owns the Page Turn - NYTimes.com

by sbrothier
If you want to know just how broken the patent system is, just look at patent D670,713, filed by Apple and approved this week by the United States Patent Office. This design patent, titled, “Display screen or portion thereof with animated graphical user interface,” gives Apple the exclusive rights to the page turn in an e-reader application. Yes, that’s right. Apple now owns the page turn. You know, as when you turn a page with your hand. An “interface” that has been around for hundreds of years in physical form. I swear I’ve seen similar animation in Disney or Warner Brothers cartoons.

Seth's Blog: A tacky mess: the masses vs. great design

by gregg (via)
Designers prune. Left to its own devices, the mob will augment, accessorize, spam, degrade and noisify whatever they have access to, until it loses beauty and function and becomes something else. The tragedy of the design commons. A farmer's market with no entry requirements turns into a bazaar and then into a souvenir stand and finally into a flea market. A bulletin board with no moderator or hierarchy becomes a random mess of affiliate posts and noise, where only a smart search engine is helpful. An Apple product designed with user feedback would have thousands of extra features, multiple input methods and weigh 18 pounds. (The best exception to this rule are some--not all--places where people live, including parts of Manhattan and Kibera, Kenya. But even in the best instances, as soon as commercial interests are served, it starts to fail). It seems democratic and non-elitist to set it and forget it and let the users take over. But the tools we use (Wikipedia) and the brands we covet (Nike or Ducati) resolutely refuse to become democracies.

by night.kame

Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature.1 All of which may just make this app the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever.

À part ça, le PDG d'Apple a écrit une lettre aux clients pour dire qu'Apple s'était un peu vautré. Mais le discours commercial reste.

iPhone 5 website teardown: How Apple compresses video using JPEG, JSON, and <canvas>

by srcmax & 1 other
The "Design" page for iPhone 5 includes an auto-playing video of the device being unlocked. But there's no video element, just a canvas. And if you check the "Network" tab of the inspector, you won't find any video there either. But you will find some strange JPEG images:
