i heart iPad

On a recent trip to California i met up with a friend who recently went to work for Apple and described it as a dictatorship.  He considered himself lucky, because he mostly liked the ideas of Steve Jobs, who’s imprint is on all things Apple.

Today i am quite pleased with Apple’s closed format tablet.  This is because i just viewed my blog on it.    If you can get your hands on an iPad easily, check out this blog on it (or any blog, i assume).  Instead of displaying he HTML which the blog creates, typically giving you the top portion of the last entry, the iPad gives you the image and first paragraph of the last 5 or 6 blog posts.  This is perfect for how i write my blog, it converts it basically into a digital magazine.  Where enticing first sentences and alluring images make you want to press the article you want to read.  And because the topics are fairly diverse, there is likely something for every progressives liking.

    errr… that’s Apple taking over your content the way it sees fit – good that you happen to like it this way but just think of the implications – what if you didn’t like the way they displayed your content: there’s no way for you to change how they show it, and nowhere to complain.

    I applaud Apple for their user-friendliness, they really are the enlightened ones when it comes to designing user experience on devices. Unfortunately more often than not for them, it’s just a very insidious way to lure you in. And once you’re in, it will be hard to leave, because your ass now belongs to them – just read the terms of use.

    Freedom of information is surely something revolutionaries should consider seriously.

    Thats probably just a mobile theme, the same thing will happen on android or most other mobile telephones. Its a browser setting, not an apple specific one….

    Apple is the second largest corporation after exxon mobil oil, you should consider that before you give them your money or headspace…

    Correction: Second most valuable corporation (not second largest)……

    And its a wordpress mobile theme probably, so its thanks to open source software and nothing to do with apple (although safari is also based on open source software)
