Phil Schiller's response to Ninjawords dictionary word censorship

John Gruber displaying some of his high-brow comedyDaring Fireball got an email beatdown today from Phil Schiller about the controversy surrounding Apple’s decision to "censor" Ninjawords, a dictionary app for the iPhone.  It turns out that most of Daring Fireball’s argument yesterday was just wrong.  

Let me start with the most important points – Apple did not censor the content in this developer’s application and Apple did not reject this developer’s application for including references to common swear words. You accused Apple of both in your story and the fact is that we did neither.  Ninjawords is an application which uses content from the online wiki-based dictionary to provide a nice fast dictionary application on the web and on the iPhone. Contrary to what you reported, the Ninjawords application was not rejected in the App Store review process for including common “swear” words. In fact anyone can easily see that Apple has previously approved other dictionary applications in the App Store that include all of the “swear” words that you gave as examples in your story.

Wiktionary, the source of of Ninja Words definitions, contains huge amounts of profanity, even if it isn’t the seven words you can’t say on TV.  While Ninjawords may have did a search and destroy on those 7 words in the database, many "Urban Dictionary-type" definitions still exist.

Re-purchasing apps not going to happen?

It looks like the zany idea of having to repurchase apps is a no-go (thankfully).  According to appadvice (via Giz) the inability to re-download apps was just a "bug" which has been cleared up now. With the final release of iTunes 8.2, we discovered that the message stopped appearing for users who had an authorized […]

MSFT pins hopes on Win Mobile 7 – late 2010

Microsoft seems scared, wooing iPhone developers to bring their WWDC-invented ideas to its Windows Mobile platform, while inventing a dual platform pitch to compete with Android and Apple.

Microsoft isn’t expected to introduce a fully updated version of Windows Mobile until next year, but will ship it the upgraded Windows Mobile 6.5 in October. But Windows Mobile partners won’t feel the magic touch – Microsoft won’t be enabling touch interfaces until a little later, in February 2010, reports Digitimes.

More iPhone3 predictions

John Gruber, is also predicting faster processor, more battery life, better camera and digital compass for the iPhone 3.  While nothing new is noted on the iPhone, he adds another voice to the changes we’ve been hearing for awhile now.  He also agrees that a major feature of the next touch devices from Apple will be the cameras.

Based on our information, we believe the next iPhone chip will be the S5PC100.(Google it).

He also thinks that 13-inch aluminum Macbooks will all now be called MacBook Pros (not Airs of course) and we’ll see minor updates to the MacBook Pro line at WWDC.

iPhone as ticketing system detailed in patent

Patently Apple today published a patent by Apple that details an “iTunes based web service for tickets that will naturally enhance the iTunes music empire.”  The iPhone and Mac application “Concert Ticket” would allow all facets of the ticketing process to happen automatically.  

The advantages of Apple’s system include electronic maps to the event, electronic distribution of tickets through email or other means, song lyrics, refreshments, the ability to purchase a live recording of the concert or other content, parking and finding people. 

It doesn’t stop with Music concert tickets.  Apple lays out plans for sporting events, weddings and conventions (like WWDC, pictured but not scheduled officially yet). 

Is Ticketmaster the next casualty of Apple?
