Steve Jobs beheads iPad apps for acting like desktops


Think Apple will copy the app?

I wouldn't put it past Apple to have decided that they liked what the app does and just decided to write their own version and kick out the other developer. They did something similar with their book case app (in that case they just hired the code writers away from the other company and had them write the same code). If Apple comes out with a similar app in a month, will Apple fans admit the dirty deed?

Windows 7 - The Reg reader review redux


Windows 7 complaints

Just from reading the comments, the complaints seem to run into two camps: 1)Windows 7 is crap because I shouldn't have to buy something new to get the new bells and whistles, and 2) Windows 7 is crap because it isn't XP. I've used the analogy before of asking Microsoft to make an operating system work with every possible hardware configuration is much like asking General Motors to make a car that works with every part made from every other car company, then complaining when certain parts don't work properly.

As for it not being XP, it isn't designed to be. Last time I checked, Stevie B wasn't going to anyone's house and forcing you to buy the new operating system. Complain if you want, but if you went to your boss at work and said "I don't want to do it that way, it's different than the way I've always done it" and see how well that works. Improving things means changing things.
