- "The App Store concept has trade-offs. There are pros and cons to this model versus the wide-open nature of Mac OS X. There are reasonable arguments to be made on both sides. But blatantly anti-competitive exclusion of apps that compete with Apple’s own? There is no trade-off here. No one benefits from such a policy, not even Apple. If this is truly Apple’s policy, it’s a disaster for the platform. And if it’s not Apple’s policy, then Podcaster’s exclusion is proof that the approval process is completely broken.
"Either way, something is seriously wrong."
- "When Republicans say that Democrats 'just don't get it,' this is the 'it' to which they refer. Conservative positions on gays, guns, god, and immigration must be understood as means to achieve one kind of morally ordered society. When Democrats try to explain away these positions using pop psychology they err, they alienate, and they earn the label 'elitist.' But how can Democrats learn to see—let alone respect—a moral order they regard as narrow-minded, racist, and dumb?"
- “'We know that there will never be in our lifetimes a celebration like V-J Day,' McCain said. 'I don’t know of any enemy we face, or possible adversary, where there’s a clear-cut victory. In Iraq, we will withdraw with honor, and the troops will come home, and there are other conflicts—in Afghanistan, over time, we’ll grow an army—but there will be no church bells ringing all over America and prayers of thanksgiving in cathedrals.'
"Is this because of the nature of modern America?
“'It’s the nature of the adversary,' he said." Understand this: while I am critical of many of McCain's stands, I have always agreed with him on the Iraq War and the prosecution of same. I think Obama was wrong about the surge, and I think Obama knows it, too. I wish Barack would come up with a way to admit that he was wrong without seeming weak. Honestly, I wish McCain could be Obama's VP—he would be great in that role. But it'll never happen because John doesn't respect Barack. Sad.
- "Apple’s current practice of rejecting certain applications at the final hurdle – submission to the App Store – is disastrous for investor confidence. Developers are investing time and resources in the App Store marketplace and, if developers aren’t confident, they won’t invest in it. If developers – and serious developers at that – don’t invest, what’s the point?" Fraser is DEAD ON.
