OK. I really am starting to get fed up of all these websites releasing ‘iPhone’ interfaces. Has no mobile phone in the world been able to access the web before? What about the millions of Windows Mobile, Nokia Symbian or Sony UIQ phones to say nothing of all the Blackberrys out there? What about some decent web interfaces for them??
“Apple, through its marketing and visual design techniques, is manufacturing an illusion that merely buying an Apple makes you part of an alternative community. But the technology they use is explicitly chosen to divide people into separate digital cells, and to position Apple as sole warden. When your business depends on people paying for the privilege of being locked up, the prison better look and feel luxurious, and the bars better not be too visible.”
