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.

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?

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

Apple's primary focus hasn't been on selling computers for years. Now they sell a lifestyle, and their tangible products are just fashion accessories for that lifestyle.
