parislemon:

Clever use of Passbook.

Yes, this is a great idea. I’m looking forward to seeing the execution of it when the app is released.

The five Atlantis astronauts look out  overhead windows on the aft flight deck toward their counterparts  aboard the Mir space station, with which they had just  rendezvoused.

Your Startup Sucks: How to (Fucking) Hire Developers »

startupsucks:

This is a fairly coarse article. There’s a gentler version posted here.



This is a topic that has really gotten out of hand. There are all sorts weighing in these days — along with far too much jowl waggling by middle managers and idealist super hackers.

So let’s cut the shit and get…

No Other Distribution Authorized Under this Agreement

rentzsch:

Apple’s iPhone Developer Program License Agreement:

7.3 No Other Distribution Authorized Under this Agreement
Except for the distribution of freely available Licensed Applications and the distribution of Applications for use on Registered Devices as set forth in Sections 7.1 and 7.2 above, no other distribution of programs or applications developed using the Apple Software is authorized or permitted hereunder. In the absence of a separate agreement with Apple, You agree not to distribute Your Application to third parties via other distribution methods or to enable or permit others to do so.

Diabolical.

Apple’s developer tools license mandates use of their distribution channel.

Because, you know, Cydia is such a threat to Apple’s business model.

Imagine if gcc’s license required your resulting executables run solely on Linux.

Imagine if Google required hosting your web apps on solely App Engine if you used Closure.

I hope section 7.3 comes back to bite Apple during their Department of Justice investigation.

Crazy.. who’s running Apple these days?

The stockmarket is the world’s biggest casino and your broker makes money whether you win or lose. So only risk money that’s left over at the end of the month … and only after you’ve made deposits into your savings accounts, IRA, and 401.

“I don’t care. If I don’t get food in my mouth, I’m still happy. If my pants are round my ankles, as long as I don’t get arrested for indecent exposure, I’m happy. I’m worried about keeping my hair, not how it’s combed. […] I don’t know that [my kids have] ever seen Back To The Future all the way through. Just as Parkinson’s isn’t a big topic of conversation in my house, neither is my career. I go down to my office every day and they say, ‘Dad’s going to work.’” — Michael J. Fox

That’s a great attitude to have about Parkinson’s!

ignore the code » MacHeist »

Interesting comments on how MacHeist might affect other developers not in on the deal (Panic, Barebones).
