Apple We're all familiar with the fact that Apple has trouble managing its App Store. While it is overflowing with applications, Apple governs it willy-nilly, and the web is rife with stories from developers who had their application rejected for no apparent reason. There's now a new issue we can add to the list. Are you an iPhone developer? Do you want a similar, competing application out of the App Store? All you need to do is send an infringement claim to Apple, and they'll happily threaten to remove the competing application without a second thought. Update: And here's a similar case, about Stoneloops! vs. Luxor.

"[q][q]Its because Apple does bad things and makes bad things.

Apple makes and sells a worldview. They have more in common with a fashion house than a tech company.

You do realise that making such a nonsensical statement makes you look like a nitwit? [/q]

Don't look now, but your post doesn't exactly make you look like a master debater either. [/q]

I know, I know - and I started to write a more substantive rebuttal but then I just gave up - come on, if some can make such a statement like that in public they are not going to respond to rational discourse. In the end I was just lazy and wrote what came first into my head when I first saw this guys drivel.
