Jobs was an asshole.

Anybody who's developed an iOS app on a non-Mac platform can attest to this. I spent a lot of time and money preparing an app for the iOS market, only to find out you MUST have an Apple Mac to upload the app to iTunes.

WTF?

I'm sure this is because Steve Jobs demanded this. There is simply NO technical reason for this requirement.

Every other mobile app market has an easy entry, uploading apps and resources through the web... even with Apple's iTunes, you can upload MOST of the stuff through their web portal, but the app itself has to be uploaded using Apple's "Application Loader" that only runs on the latest Mac OS X version.

In the end, I had to run a Virtual Hackentosh to get the job done, but it truly is an assholish thing for Apple to do to developers, who already have to pay a fee to even submit apps. Likewise, the process for preparing apps for device testing and distribution is easily the most complicated PITA of any mobile app development platforms.

LesserEvil: Jobs was an asshole.


Last time I checked, that was the number one requirement to being a wealthy business person. No one ever got that big being nice, moral and considerate.

Why settle for writing for a PHONE anyway? Write for Linux: KDE provides a decent framework, or there's GNUstep. If you must set your sights so low try Android and broaden it later.

Or you could always abandon your integrity, curse God and die.

Let's watch as the fandroids don't bother to click the link and come in here to blather on about their irrational Apple hatred!

LesserEvil takes the lead with a lengthy tirade that is not about tropical grain-bearing plants!

And Dragon's blood exists apart from Harry Potter books, too. Sometimes they use it in violin varnish.

STEVE Job's tears? Because I'm sure they'd be delicious and satisfying.

/anyone who isn't an iCultist can recognize that the man was a major-league asshole who stole more concepts (and pretended to invent them) than Thomas Edison
