Snap previews are useless and annoying

I agree Snap previews have no value to the end user. It’s a useless piece of sofware.

Untill I read the thread at Dave Winer’s blog. I didn’t realize you could turn it off. If you go to “Presentation” menu and click on “Extras” and uncheck “Enable Snap Preview Anywhere on this blog”.

After reading the article at Baseline I went to MySpace and clicked on a profile, after waiting 30 seconds I finally got an error “Connection Reset”. :-)

DRM is about paying more and getting less.

As of late it seems like everyone is trying to squeeze every last dollar of of you, either by increasing prices to ridiculous levels like the insurance and energy companies or by forcing you to pay more for less like they entertainment industry.

It will eventually be the downfall of America.

iPhone WOW

Apple Inc, iPhone

Apple released the iPhone today shipping in June. What can I say but WOW. It runs OS X and has a built in multi-touch wide screen. It’s and iPod and a Mac rolled up into a single slim portable device.

Apple estimates that they will sell 10Million of these babies in 2008. I believe that estimate is way to low. To date I have never purchased a mobile phone because of the bad user interfaces. To me it was just to much hassle. Apple has finally solved the problem, I guarantee I will be purchasing one in June.

Jobs was right. They did revolutionize the mobile/pda phone market. It will never be the same and other handheld makers have got to be shitting in their pants right about now.

Apple just might end up being the king of the hill for a long time to come.

 

Update: Why would Apple brag about the fact it runs OS X and not give it’s devlopers a mobile platform. Oyee! So Apple only get’s it half right
