High five on loving the first Life Is Strange. Can’t comment on Before the Storm, though, as that was one game I never thought needed a prequel.

Instead, they should be attacking vertical integration, where Apple retains (or attempts to retain) full control over what software is allowed to run on devices that they don’t own. That behavior should be prohibited. Read more

This bill is very poorly written. It won’t help small developers. It would actually hurt them if they go with a 3rd party payment processor. Under this bill, Apple wouldn’t be able to force Arizona-based developers or users to use the App Store payment processing for in-app purchases. But it also wouldn’t be able to Read more

Feel free to rant as much as you like, but it’s absolutely an RPG.

Or, they are aware that it is a walled garden, and either don’t care or prefer it that way. Android uses need to stop pretending that they are the only people who make rational decisions based on their needs as a consumer, and that everyone else is being manipulated/is ignorant about the tech they pay hundreds to Read more

I’d say that’s a very specific process for activating a demon gene but it’s not like I’m a geneticist or anything so what do I know?

The Windows analogy is flawed because Windows is just software. MS didn’t create the hardware that runs Windows and PC’s are not closed systems. Apple products, on the other hand, are closed systems with proprietary hardware and software designed by Apple. When you buy an Apple product, you’re consciously buying into Read more

Except I’m not arguing for restricting choice for everyone. That’s the fundamental problem with how people are arguing about this. The iPhone is not a market. It is simply one part of a market. Read more
