Jul 28th 2009 9:56AM someone maybe start an #applefail tag? that at least would be something worth getting worked up about

Palm complains about Apple to USB governing body, while Pre / iTunes sync "fix" is explained (Engadget)

Jul 24th 2009 9:31PM i don't know if they really legally can, as I'm not a lawyer, i just think they should.
Why? cause apple has the biggest marketshare in both media players, download stores, and media player software, and it's at a point where it's seriously annoying and hurting consumers, meaning they (apple) abuse their power. Apple just has to realize that up to a point if you're small, you don't have to think about these things, and wanting open standards on one side and blocking interoperability on the other side is o.k., but at some point it's not anymore.

iPhone 3.0's 'broken' push messaging caused by unlockers, dirty keys (Engadget)

Jul 23rd 2009 6:57PM do you have a link for that? the only thing I saw from them was the one where they said you'd have to copy from a 2nd non-hacktivated device.

Jul 23rd 2009 10:41AM this is only partially true. It will only affect normal users if they willingly extracted the key to make it work on a 2nd (hacktivated) phone, otherwise it will only affect people that not only jailbroke and hacktivated their phone, but installed a 3rd party (not from the official jailbreak process) fix that included the certificates. The dev-team said to use your own cert from another device like an ipod touch or other iphone, other ppl then packaged it with one and the same cert.

Roger McNamee self-parodies his Palm Pre superlatives: "it eats iPhones for breakfast" (Engadget)

May 28th 2009 8:30PM nothing all that wrong with his statement, except it's wrong, cause there have been feature phones/smart phones with mirrors before. lots of em.

iTunes support confirmed for Palm Pre (Engadget)

May 28th 2009 8:27PM mmh, interesting. Still, unless I hear some info that this is somehow sanctioned by apple, its likely this is another hack (like so many others, Real, I'm looking at you) Also take into consideration if the pre would present itself as "just another mass storage device" it wouldn't be able to sync with itunes. So, unless apple agreed to this, it is like saying "sue us". Otherwise, 29,99 3rd party mp3 player would be syncing with itunes since long ago.

Palm Pre said to sync up nicely with Apple's iTunes (Engadget)

May 28th 2009 3:38PM I call BS on this. Most likely it's marketing speak for "non-drm files will play on the pre" (like on every other mp3 player supporting mp4/aac.
