Apple: Amazon's Appstore isn't an 'app store' (TUAW.com)

May 21st 2011 4:35AM Apple, as good as the products they make are, are a bunch of dumb, greedy assholes. This whole trying to say "App Store" is generic and fighting over it somehow reminds me of Sony and Geohot.

I think 2011 is really going to be a year where companies try to sue everyone and everything to claim things for themselves, all while looking bad/pissing off the customers.

White, black iPhones same thickness say Phil Schiller, Consumer Reports (TUAW.com)

May 2nd 2011 7:28PM I got a White Verizon iPhone 4 a few days ago and I saw a picture on I THINK it was Engadget where a white and black iPhone 4 were next to each other with a piece of pencil led (from a mechanical pencil) on it. It tipped over from the white to the black iPhone.

I went into Verizon and they insisted they were the same thickness, and they even put a case on my iPhone to prove it. So I don't know what is going on, but my white iPhone 4 is just like the black ones.

Just cooler =P

Apple updates Safari to 5.0.4 with security, stability, compatibility improvements (TUAW.com)

Mar 11th 2011 12:24AM I just updated my MBP 15" (Mid 2010) with this update and now when I restart and load my Mac it freezes on the desktop (rainbow circle thing) and the icons don't load, neither does the clock.

My dock has been completely reset to the default view and icons, and it just hangs. I can't do anything except a hard reset, but it keeps happening. I have a home folder encryption on and automatic login.

Any advice?

Celebrate Presidents Day with Google's U.S. Presidents Showcase (Download Squad)

Feb 21st 2011 9:18AM I'm celebrating by fucking going to school (college)

Windows Phone 7 Connector sync utility now available for Mac (Download Squad)

Oct 26th 2010 12:19AM You forgot to mention that this is a beta, and sadly the Zune does not work with this.

iPad app helps you understand US health care reform (TUAW.com)

Oct 16th 2010 12:04PM I have a Mac and I despise the government. Health care, Federal Reserve, Bush, Obama, hate them all.

And now Michael Grothaus as well. I'm not trying to start a flame war but you can tell he supports ObamaCare from the way this article was written and like others above me said, this is just a political post. They shouldn't have even put it up on here in the first place. But alas, he's the writer he can do what he wants (unfortunately).

Apple patent application reveals tiny audio jacks (TUAW.com)

Sep 24th 2010 8:47PM Agreed. I got the new iPod Touch but due to money issues returned it and got the new iPod Nano instead and after three days with it I'm returning it as well.

This thing is just TOO small. I can't hold it comfortably in my hand, and scrolling is a bit tough with my thumb (I'm fat) and when I'm driving having to look at the screen closely to see what I'm listening to is going to get me killed.

I think that the new Nano is cool and all, but Apple needs to stop trying to make everything smaller because the Nano in my opinion is already TOO small. Not to mention a smaller audio jack would mean proprietary audio cables, and looking at the iPods USB caables and the Macbook's power cables you can tell trusting Apple with cables is a big no-no.

Garry's Mod out for Mac (TUAW.com)

Sep 24th 2010 8:43PM It crashed for me when I first changed the resolution but after I fired it back up it worked fine for me. Maybe try reinstalling?

Garry's Mod out for Mac (TUAW.com)

Sep 24th 2010 8:42PM I have this for Mac and I'm confused. In order to freeze a character's limbs (so that they stand like they do in the picture) you have to right click but my stupid magic mouse doesn't right click (you have to do this while holding down the left click to move an object).

Does anyone know what to do? This is the #1 I stopped playing so quickly and it bugs me that the tutorial for the game still says right click even though I can't.

For anyone interested I have the new MBP with the wireless magic mouse connected to an external monitor. Any help is greatly appreciated.

New Digg has tons of issues, Kevin Rose responds (Download Squad)

Aug 30th 2010 2:06PM The first paragraph is really dumb, I agree. I'm surprised Ben Clark (another writer on this site) didn't write it either. The level of stupidity and bias seen in it is something that can only come from him.

Or so I thought...
