Tim Cook: Apple Has ‘Lots of Surprises’ in Store for This Fall and 2014

In other words, no new products until the fall. This will be the longest time Apple has gone without a new product introduction that I remember. I can understand the reasoning – they want to do annual releases and the fall is the best time to do it. I do wonder though how that’s going to play out over time. Will it affect traffic numbers at the stores for the rest of the year? It could of course be just a blip as they re-organise some things internally. Interesting, none the less.

App Gratis CEO details the events surrounding his App being pulled from the App Store

A very detailed blog post from Simon Dawlat, the CEO of the much publicised App Gratis which was pulled from the App store last week. While it’s only one side of the story, he documents everything pretty well, and it’s hard to see this as anything but a backdoor policy shift on these kinds of apps by apple. Simon Dawlat is pretty pissed one way or the other.

Sorenson Media Launches Squeeze 9

Sorenson is still around?

Fond memories of the Sorenson codec. Thank god we don’t use that any more, although I got a quicktime from a client not so long ago encoded with the old Sorenson codec.

All kidding aside, Squeeze is a pretty good programme, or so I’ve been told. I never use it myself. Compressor and Adobe Media Encoder do pretty much everything I need.

Not surprising considering JC Penny’s performance since he took over, but, as others have pointed out, they didn’t really give him time to turn things around. Still, his former position at Apple is still open. Just sayin’
