Amazon, Not Developers, Will Set New App Store's Prices

Captain Perspicuous Re:This is an evil monopoly move, and must be stop (294 comments)

What's stopping you from creating a special "amazon edition" version of your app and giving it to Amazon with a 5 times higher MSRP?

The point is that when you click on a tab, stuff _below_ it changes. A tab is not an element "click me and all around the screen stuff changes". A tab is an element that tells you "if you switch to a different tab, stuff below me changes".

Now look what happens when you currently click on a different tab in Firefox, Safari or IE: stuff changes below it (the page) and above it (the URL in the address bar). This is illogical! It dillutes the meaning of a tab. And it makes it difficult for normal computer users to understand the concept of a tab. Placing it the way Google does does now fix this.

This is first and foremost an issue of correctness and preserving the concept of a UI element, not a question of taste.

Full Commodore 64 Emulator Rejected from App Store

Captain Perspicuous Captain Perspicuous writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Captain Perspicuous (899892) writes "From the article: iPhone developer Manomio has created a fully licensed Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhone that can play classic games and even run Commodore 64 BASIC. A year ago, he contacted Apple Europe and they were really excited. Now that everything's in place, the dev confidently submitted the app, but was rejected. I think now is the proper time to show some big outrage, email Apple, flood their phone hotlines with calls, stage protests in ther shops, until this is resolved. A C64 emu, people. In your pocket. Think about the possibilities!"
