The Subtle Developer Exodus From the Mac App Store

Fly Ricky - The Wine There will soon be a day (229 comments)

When you cannot run anything on anything unless it's been vetted by a corporation first. That's the real issue here. There will not be a market of alternate devices that are able to run unvetted applications. Whether Apple is particularly dickish in their take on this inevitable future, is a minor point.

Apple Reveals the Most Common Reasons That It Rejects Apps

Fly Ricky - The Wine Itunes itself violates good design principles (132 comments)

Fly Ricky - The Wine Re:HP - Great Name - Good Riddance (288 comments)

Fly Ricky - The Wine Tautology (288 comments)

So the article uses the fact that a company made a profit against them, when it made the profit by firing people - but it's an article against firing people? Isn't it also a tacit acknowledgement that firing people helps the bottom line?
