Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

that heavy-handed arbiter

May12

Apple has always come under intense heat for acting as a gatekeeper for the App Store. They decide which apps will and won’t be sold. This opposed to Android Market which allows third-party developers to post their applications without prior approval. …How current generation.

Jobs won’t ever change his position on this matter. And, I hope when he’s gone, Apple maintains that strict policy.

I feel Apple would rather be seen as a heavy-handed arbiter than as the purveyor of a product that runs bad stuff (see Google Docs). Sometimes control – especially in the name of quality, is more than okay. It sets the standard. Apple does this very thing, for excellence.

One more thought, and this about application development – and, the future iPad and iPhone… The advantage that Apple has, is that with the iPad, Apple has developers writing apps specifically designed to use it, which Windows 7 lacks, and Android, as well. I’m fairly certain, based entirely on experience, mind you, that Apple wants iPad and iPhone apps to feel like they were made just for the iPad and iPhone. They don’t want App X for iPhone to be indistinguishable from App X the whorish Android platform.

Peace be to my Brothers and sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
