Apple The situation regarding Apple's App Store for the iPhone is getting weirder by the day. Several applications have been rejected from the App Store based on seemingly dubious claims such as duplication of functionality (even though they didn't duplicate anything), or alikeness to default applications. Two such cases made headline news over the past few days; Podcaster and MailWrangler. The developers of these applications openly protested against these rejections, and apparently, Apple doesn't really like that. Apple now reiterates that rejections fall under the NDA, prohibiting developers from speaking up about rejections.

RE[5]: Apple vs Google

Yup, phasing it out by including Firewire 800 ports

...which almost no one uses, because Apple didn't have the sense to keep the cables / connectors compatible.

on MacBook Pros, 2x800 & 2x400 ports on Mac Pros - and developing the Firewire 3200 standard to boot.

So where can I find a MacBook Air with Firewire? Or an iPod? Apple's not one of them "cheapo PC manufacturers not wanting to pay the licencing cost" now, are they?
