Apple Goes Asshole Again

Apple now rejecting apps with Pebble Smartwatch support

SeaNav US has previously been approved by Apple with no problem, we have had Pebble support in SeaNav for nearly 2 years and there are no changes to our support for the Pebble in this version. What are Apple doing? Have they gone Apple Watch crazy? What can we do?

The fifth year of assholism.

2010: Apple bans Android magazine app

No mater how advanced iOS is over Android, and no matter how fantastic Apple’s own apps for it are, when Apple does something like this, it makes Android look like a no-brainer to get.

And it’s smug behavior like this that will eventually be the downfall of Apple, one way or another.

Same-day update:

We’ll see what happens.

Xiaomi + AOKP: HOAX!

News is going around that AOKP has teamed with Xiaomi on MIUI 7.

It’s a hoax.

No one bothered to translate the headline.

I did.

KANG MI NAO! = KANG MI NOT!

The hoax post that fooled many.

How The Hell Does This Even Make Any Sense?!

POLICE: FIGHT OVER $500 LOTTERY WIN LED TO MURDER-SUICIDE

A guy wins $500 on a scratch-off lottery ticket. His girlfriend wants some. He doesn’t want to share. He shoots her and then shoots himself dead. She later dies at the hospital.

Neither one of them gets the money.

This country is spinning into a whirlpool of insanity.

Spotify: I Really Hope This Is Not True

I have a ton of playlists I assembled and created at Spotify, using the free service.

If free is going away, are they going to just erase all that work?

The music labels are a bunch of greedy parasite bastards. Doing away with free Spotify will only send everyone back to piracy.

Memo To Xiaomi’s Lin Bin: Everyone Is Biased Against Crap

Weibo:

LinBinBiasWeibo01

Biased? Please. If scourging crap like the Trio tablet is being “biased,” then I’m all for it.

Instead of kissing-up to the lamestream — and mostly corrupt — tech media, Lin, why not try to replicate what Xiaomi accomplished in China by going directly to users and to those who have shown an interest in your products?

But if you expect me or anyone else to give Xiaomi a free pass on the Balmuda design theft, you better think twice!

Sony: Still Out Of Their Damned Mind

I went to the SonyStyle Store in NYC yesterday.

I’m very curious about the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra that Best Buy is selling for US$249 (note that the website price of US$299 is incorrect).

But all they have are dummy units. I really wanted to experience that TriLuminous screen.

So, to their store.

It was a miserable experience.
