"For the first time in the history of media, those that are able to consume the media are also able to create it."

Seth Godin, apparently reposting thoughts from the early nineties (and it should be “who are able”, not “that are able”, I suspect.)

The Costs

parislemon:

Marco Arment, reacting to Andy Ihnatko’s thoughts that the consumers lose as a result of Apple’s win over Samsung:

What’s really going to disrupt the iPhone is going to be something completely different, not something that tries so hard to clone the iPhone that it hits Apple’s patents.

Unoriginal manufacturers will need to pay for their unoriginality. The most reasonable course of action, therefore, is to truly innovate and design products that aren’t such close copies.

I fail to see how consumers lose.

I completely agree that what will end the iPhone’s run is something totally different, not a copycat. Maybe Apple will make that product, or maybe someone else will. This case does nothing to stop that. It simply stops people from copying the current iPhone.

What does worry me about this lawsuit is that it’s going to lead to many more. And it makes patents even more important, and as such, more valuable. That could end up hurting many companies, both large and small. And it could distract from innovation because everyone will be so preoccupied with filing patents, looking for ones that they might be infringing upon, or in court.

I literally cannot believe that this is something that exists.

Branded content fail?

This might just be the antidote to all those motivational Paolo Coelho-assed pictures that appear in my stream. How is it that the hippie movement was reduced to some sub-LOLcat photo meme?

Facebook SDK 3.0 for iOS

parislemon:

Objective-C-heavy SDK for iOS is ready to go. Probably safe to assume the Objective-C-heavy iOS app won’t be too far behind. 

Or maybe they hold it for the Apple event next month? “And here to show off what developers can do with the new screen real estate, the most popular app in the world: Facebook!” Pure speculation. 

Facebook iOS SDK ready? Gladiators ready?
