- Perhaps the very problem is this whole Apple stoically “taking it on the chin” business. Apple’s near total silence on really incredibly important matters is indeed a huge part of why so many developers, myself included, just don’t trust the damn thing. It’s like a black hole from which no information escapes.

"So I made this."
- Very few people make eventful demand work. It's a shame. I guess that means it's a hard problem?
