@leebennett Yes, except that in this case there are many developers involved, plus MacHeist itself, so it's unclear who to blame.

@imsoper I don't see that he neglected to mention Chrome. The emphasis was on mobile browsers.

@bynkii Yeah, I realize that Microsoft has Cocoa on their roadmap, but Adobe has already shipped. I bet Office sells more than CS5.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to bynkii

If Adobe was the last to go Cocoa, is Steve is saying that Microsoft is not a major third-party developer?

@matthewdrayton My first reaction was that I'd found a bug, because how could a spammer get that address? Turns out @spamsieve was right.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to matthewdrayton

Getting spam at the e-mail address that I only gave to MacHeist.

@rosyna The ODB "Edit in BBEdit" seems to be gone, but you can tell Transmit to open files in BBEdit and it seems to notice when you save.

@retrophisch Congratulations! What a smart teenager you were. :-)

Received an e-mail from Amazon saying Kindle is the "#1 Bestselling Product at Amazon." Does that mean it sells better than the DX?

@SenorDanimal Bottom line: there's room for improvement. You shouldn't have to give up one display, and I shouldn't have to be tied down.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danimal

@SenorDanimal I put the main display in the middle and only use the internal one for auxiliary windows. Neck/eye turning beats Spaces/Exposé

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danimal

@kevinhoctor True. I'm trying to automate that via AppleScript, but mostly I don't use the MBP disconnected very often.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to kevinhoctor

@kevinhoctor I don't understand this urge people have to not use the second display that they already have.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to kevinhoctor

@uliwitness I thought not clearing ivars was good. That way you crash/zombie instead of having an undetectable bug.

@cparnot iPad Mail is fine for reading personal messages. For skimming (e.g. mailing lists), it's too slow at loading the next message.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to cparnot

@drewmccormack Yeah, I'm not seeing the iPad as being very useful for mail. Less convenient than iPhone. Too slow compared to Mac.

@adamengst Congratulations! 20 years—wow. Keep up the good work.

Discovered that my grandmother's Microsoft Office was broken because the Office folder was moved relative to the apps. Yay for Copilot.

@matthewglidden I don't have much to say, and I keep thinking my adaptation to it will change. Would you like to write something?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to matthewglidden

@matthewglidden How do you plan to hold/stand the iPad when using the Bluetooth keyboard?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to matthewglidden

@matthewglidden Yep. Although, in fairness, hunting and pecking is pretty fast on it.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to matthewglidden

@fraserspeirs And it would be nice if the iBooks store could scroll…

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to fraserspeirs

Trying Camino as a site-specific browser for FogBugz because it keeps logging me out when I use Safari.

@wisequark You may be onto something with the former. Surely something as simple as a boot timing would demonstrate the snappiness.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to wisequark

@wisequark True, but with other components Apple seems to zero in on the areas where they excel and promote those—with benchmarks, even.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to wisequark

Interesting that Apple still promotes SSD for "enhanced durability" rather than speed.

via Twitter for iPhone

@jamesthomson Right, but not all developers will do so, especially once 4.0 is out.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to jamesthomson

@jterhorst What I mean is that there needs to be a way to have more than one version in iTunes.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to jterhorst

What happens if you have a 2G iPhone and an iPad and OS 4.0 comes out? iTunes doesn't really handle versioning of apps...

via Twitter for iPhone

For 99c, I decided to give Articles for iPad a try. It feels weird that the background texture doesn't scroll with the text. Wikipanion++.

via Twitter for iPhone

@mattgemmell Seems reasonable to expect that Apple would greenlight it since it didn't violate any of the rules.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mattgemmell

@pilky That's what I thought I might do, but the small(er) screen and keyboard are proving more limiting than I expected.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

"I have nothing against Russian Beauties, but is there a way to make them stop?"

via Twitter for iPhone

@pilky I think they may finally have fixed the save dialog crasher, though.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@ddribin It's not just GUI stuff, though. What about the engine and libraries?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to ddribin

@tuparev Suppose you want to use a non-built-in SQL engine? (Perhaps even a newer SQLite, or one with FTS added.)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to tuparev

@tuparev SQL would seem to violate the no-interpreters rule in the previous developer agreement.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to tuparev

The Incase iPad case looks good (via @mattgemmell) http://bit.ly/aKzwAg although for occasional use I may just use my 12-inch PB G4 case.

via Twitter for iPhone

@danielpunkass Seems like skating on thin ice to violate the letter of the rule and hope Apple doesn't detect it.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

Depending on how you read it, Section 3.3.1 also applies to regular expressions, generated parsers, SQL, etc.

via Twitter for iPhone

@danielpunkass Probably not, because wouldn't it be trivial to compile any language to C instead of assembly?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

@siegel I'd settle for a hub that could support two hard drives requiring normal current...

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to siegel

@pilky Yes, well, hopefully Bodega will be generating a lot of sales and/or they won't invoice very often. An experiment.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@pilky In my case (E-junkie-based store), I made the "thank you" page generate some JavaScript to report the sale to Bodega for tracking.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

Updated my site to handle the new Bodega store. (Thanks for the reminder, @danwood.)

@particlenparcel My first batch lasted well under a year. Since then, no replacements in the last several years. Weird.
