Apple Backs Off

The original rabbit looked entirely different, funny how drawing choices change over the years.

This article on Apple’s press release today is a must-read. First it breaks it down to the basics, that Apple had banned third-party app development to enforce the use of their own development tools, not out of an altruistic intention to save their users from apps made from inferior products. And whoops, somebody forgot that apps built on those nasty alternative platforms were already sitting in the App Store. Apple had painted themselves into a corner and out of the chance to profit from hot new games without backtracking. Then the article really gets intriguing with a discussion of Apple’s arbitrary censorship of app content. What makes this ok, that not?

Launch Party

When I’m ready to publish this I’m going to spruce up those narration scrolls.

If all goes well I’ll be launching two websites at work tomorrow. One company manages adoptions and the other sells frozen nacho cheese. I love the variety of advertising, very different clients, very different industries, radically different designs and visions. One thing I try to keep consistent is providing customized documentation in addition to the standard information you can look up about Joomla or WordPress. No client should have to learn the ins and outs of Joomla before they know exactly how to get to one of their pages and make some changes.

Back into my RSS Feeds

I’ve been remiss in reading other people’s webcomics since April, when I quit my job and turned in my laptop. I had all of my subscriptions by email going there and all of my RSS feeds hooked to my browser, save a select few using Feedburner that would only show up on iGoogle. Not my favorite way to get an RSS by the way, I really hate getting that Feedburner message telling me I have to use it that way. If you are one of my readers and you have a webcomic you think I should be reading, don’t hesitate to drop me a line, by email or on Twitter, to remind me to subscribe to yours.
