HomePod + Android #ForbiddenLove

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 01:29:56 +0000

14 years… It’s hard to believe, but that’s how long it’s been since Apple introduced AirPlay audio streaming (originally called AirTunes) with the release of the first AirPort Express. From Apple’s press release in 2004: AirTunes is Apple’s breakthrough music networking technology which works seamlessly with iTunes running on either Macs or PCs to let … Continue reading "HomePod + Android #ForbiddenLove"

5 things Google doesn’t want you to know about Play Music

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:23:34 +0000

When you buy an MP3 on Google Play from your Android phone, Google prevents competing apps and 3rd party developers from accessing the file using technical and legal means. It can only be played in Google’s Play Music app. If you thought DRM was dead, think again. Google Play Music limits the number of devices … Continue reading "5 things Google doesn’t want you to know about Play Music"

The Men Who Stole the World

Mon, 29 Nov 2010 08:06:15 +0000

A decade ago, four young men changed the way the world works. They did this not with laws or guns or money but with software: they had radical, disruptive ideas, which they turned into code, which they released on the Internet for free. These four men, not one of whom finished college, laid the foundations … Continue reading "The Men Who Stole the World"

Google’s mismanagement of the Android Market

Mon, 28 Jun 2010 00:24:12 +0000

Earlier this week, CNET ran an article critical of the permission model of the Android Market. Google’s response to the criticism was that “each Android app must get users’ permission to access sensitive information”. While this is technically true, one should not need a PhD in Computer Science to use a smartphone. How is a … Continue reading "Google’s mismanagement of the Android Market"

Steve Jobs admits iTunes for Windows is a sub-standard app

Sun, 11 Apr 2010 06:58:38 +0000

In defending recent changes to the iPhone SDK agreement, Steve Jobs made a general argument about platforms: We’ve been there before, and intermediate layers between the platform and the developer ultimately produces sub-standard apps and hinders the progress of the platform. Since iTunes for Windows uses non-native APIs such as CoreFoundation and CoreGraphics, Steve Jobs … Continue reading "Steve Jobs admits iTunes for Windows is a sub-standard app"

Kernel 2.6.32 for your Nexus One

Mon, 25 Jan 2010 02:44:01 +0000

Unlike the locked down and user-hostile iPhone, the Google Nexus One is not SIM-locked (even when bought subsidized) and ships with a bootloader that can be unlocked to enable custom firmware flashing. More importantly, you can use the Nexus One to make calls that last longer than 10 seconds 🙂 The Nexus One ships with … Continue reading "Kernel 2.6.32 for your Nexus One"

Pogue and Mossberg on doubleTwist

Thu, 14 Jan 2010 17:17:42 +0000

David Pogue in his Nexus One review last week: The Nexus doesn’t come with any iTunes-style companion software, either. Enterprising techies know about the free DoubleTwist program for Mac or Windows, which simulates iTunes for the purposes of loading up your phone with music, photos and videos. This week, Walt Mossberg in a follow-up to … Continue reading "Pogue and Mossberg on doubleTwist"
