Apple faux pas- Ping and Photoshop


Apple seems to be having a couple of hiccups lately. It looks like Steve Job is off doing his own thing again. What a surprise right? Ping, Apple’s new social network which debuted last week utilized Facebook’s friend finding API without signing an agreement. Facebook requires that a company sign an agreement with them when the API is heavily utilized. Well, it turns out that Apple and Facebook did not reach an agreement but Apple decided to use it anyways. What happens next is pretty comical, Facebook decided to shut Apple down, leaving them to scurry around to remove all of it’s Facebook integration from Ping.  Combine this with other complains that have been voiced I would say Apple has a flop on their hands.

Not to mention, Apple apparently doesn’t know the concept of proofing. The 4th generation iPod touch sure looked like the iPhone in its promo pictures. Did you know that you could make phone calls on the new iPod touch? NOT! Check out the promo picture below, not only does it have a dialer it also supports messaging as well!

Apple are you red in the face yet?


If you ask me, Mark Zuckerberg would have been more than thrilled to collect all the cash from the new 160 million Ping user traffic. He was probably more scared that Ping users would crumble the Facebook servers. Check out the Ping screen shot below. You think one of them might be the real Zucky, looking for new ideas to integrate into Facebook?

While we are talking about Ping, I think its pretty cool that Ping is integrated on the iPhone/iPod touch as part of the iTunes app. GoogleChic, I just sent you an invite! Don’t fret, you can still access Ping on your computer. 🙂

Now are we picking up random pictures and pointing out Photoshop errors? Ouch, you touched a raw Apple-Adobe nerve with Photoshop. Steve Jobs might be really red in the face about that!

The Android, Apple battle continues


The unstoppable Andy is battling Steve Jobs yet again. I am sure AppleGirl is just shaking her head but I just couldn’t pass this one up! Looks like Steve Jobs’ iProton is running out of fire power!


GoogleChic, I hope you Androids know that Ghostbusters were the good guys and the Marshmallow Man was bad.  Applying the analogy on your t-shirt design, the green thing is the bad guy (Android) who is eventually killed by the Ghostbusters (Steve Jobs in this case). The Marshmallow Man was big, fat and slow much like the big bricks Android is selling nowadays. I think the analogy is quite fitting to Android. Well done, Andy!

Do you want to shell out $25 on a tee with a confused message? Unless you want to be mistaken for an Apple fan boy 😉

If I were you I would buy a bunch of mindless apps from the Market Place with that money!
