Random Apple Bashing thread

category: residue [glöplog]
In regards to the link above. It's within their right to restrict their stupid platform all they want. It's contractual law and the only means they have to enforce what you do is by blessing or not blessing your code. The day that your hardware bricks itself because you're running software on a black-list is the day that I begin to get really upset about these stupid restrictions. Apple may be setting the mind-frame for us to have devices like that in the future- that kinda bothers me. All in all steve-jobs is a fuck-head.

iPhone and iPad are not computers, they are appliances.

i for once don't mind lack of flash support, it's a good sign into the right direction - get rid of flash!
Apple will ensure that Apple users wont experience badly coded apps or flash shit. That`s the ultimate policy to make the user experience t0p n0tch. I love Steve Jobs!

flash sucks badly in osx anyway.
blame adobe, not apple.

Will it blend? That's the question:

wasn't it the ipad where they had to remove the metal casing to blend it? It would have been more cool to see the guy saying "well, no, it broke our blender". Blending one even without the metal case is still impressive of course :)

isnt flash non-accelerated on osx? I remember something like apple wont let flash to be accelerated? Dunno..
added on the 2010-05-05 15:08:50 by leGend leGend
there's no reason for flash in general to not be accelerated, flash video wasn't before because there wasn't a really suitable api for hardware accelerated video decoding (or even hardware accelerated video decoding in general until pretty recently). There is now, and there's a beta flash player with accelerated h264 playback.. not that it's of any use to me as none of my gpus are supported :(

Most (all?) non h264 encoded flash videos are not accelerated on either OS.

Haha, awesome!

p.s. Love the Portal 2 comic :)

The portal one was your general ignorant fanboy bollocks (try finding a mac that can run the game that's old enough to have a 1-button mouse.. it's like dissing the pc because portal won't run on windows 98.

Deus' one is a classic though, I can see that being true. People really do shit like that, I had a manager a few years back that did a trial with giving laptops to staff and decided it went so well that he was going to replace a load of desktops with laptops. And wire them to the internet. And bolt them to the desks. That's a 2-ipad moment right there :)
