App Rejections Are a Lousy Way to Communicate Policy Changes

by night.kame

In both of these cases, we see Apple breaking with their own documentation or with long-established practice with no warning, and instead using app rejections as a tool to communicate and carry out new policies. This is wretched for developers, who get caught scrambling to fix problems they didn’t know they had (or didn’t expect just yet).

Ben quoi, c'était juste un "One More Thing".

Apple Now Selling Brazilian-Made iPhone 4

Vous vous souvenez des articles disant qu'Apple ne pouvait plus fabriquer aux Etats-Unis à cause du manque de flexibilité induit par la perte de la proximité géographique avec les fournisseurs de base ? Et bien c'était juste de l'american bullshit.

Apple hit by boycott call over worker abuses in China | Technology | The Observer

by night.kame

Earlier this month Apple took the unusual step of releasing a list of all the firms in its worldwide supply chain as part of its 2011 audit of human rights conditions at factories where it has partnerships.However, the company's own list made for grim reading. It revealed that a staggering 62% of the 229 facilities that it was involved with were not in compliance with Apple's 60-hour maximum working week policy. Almost a third had problem with hazardous waste.Cook insisted in his email that Apple did not turn a blind eye to conditions in its supplier network. But he did warn that the firm was likely to discover more problems. "We will continue to dig deeper, and we will undoubtedly find more issues," he said.

Tim Cook, CEO actuel d'Apple, est responsable de toute la partie production depuis son arrivée en 1998. La fermeture des usines Apple : c'est Cook. La transformation d'Apple, fabricant informatique, en un bureau d'études couplé à une agence de publicité : c'est Cook. L'iPhone 4 blanc avec un an de retard : c'est encore Cook. Depuis 10 ans, Cook a joué la carte "sweatshops" et engrangé les profits ; ça commence à se voir, mais ça n'est plus un problème : l'argent est là, n'a jamais été distribué aux actionnaires, il peut s'acheter une virginité tel le mafieux versant son obole pour la restauration du presbytère.

No major plugin is being maintained for Power Macs any more: Flash stopped updates with Flash 10.1.102.64 in November 2010, and QuickTime 7 for the PowerPC was decommissioned with the release of QuickTime 7.7 and OS X Lion in August 2011. (Tiger users have not had an update since QT 7.6.4 in September 2009.)

iPhone 4S is worth buying to look fashionable but not for Siri feature -- Shanghai Daily | 上海日报 -- English Window to China New

by night.kame

One of the most touted features of the iPhone 4S is the web-based voice recognition assistant Siri. It's interesting and sometimes powerful, but not always in China. First, it doesn't support Mandarin and China-based map and location services, which makes it somewhat less appealing than Apple's US-based advertising would have you believe. The good news is that Apple has said it will launch a Chinese-language version of Siri this year. Second, it can't always recognize words spoken in English. I tried it 10 times, and it recognized my words only 5 times. A Canadian native speaker who also tried found it worked seven out of 10 times. Still, it will give you results sometimes if it manages to catch only keywords.

Siri, c'est la personne qui vous répondra toujours au téléphone.
