iCloud, perhaps more than any Apple software product, is meant to "just work." When Apple introduced iCloud, it made clear its hopes to eradicate settings menus and file systems in favor of automation. Steve Jobs pledged to do a better job than he did on MobileMe, Apple’s notoriously horrible stab at web services a few years ago. With iCloud, changes you make to documents on your computer show up instantly on your iPhone and vice versa. "It just works," Jobs exclaimed when he first demoed the service in 2011. "Everything happens automatically," Jobs continued, "and it’s really easy to tie your apps into iCloud’s storage system."

Fiksu: Despite iPhone 5 launch, September user acquisition costs fall to lowest point since May 2011Developers may finally be seeing some relief from the summer’s high user acquisition prices reports Boston-based user acquisition and marketing company Fiksu. According to the company’s latest figures, the cost to acquire a loyal iOS user — defined as someone who will open an app at least three times — fell by 16 percent in September, hitting the lowest price seen since Apple’s offer wall crackdown. While many had predicted the iPhone 5 launch would follow the precedent set by the 4S, which saw user acquisition costs hit $1.47 , the price actually fell by 21 cents, hitting an average of $1.13 for the month. The last time the Fiksu reported numbers this low was in May 2011, when Apple’s ban on offer walls dropped user acquisition costs to $1.10 per loyal user . User acquisition costs took a similar dive in January 2012, falling to $1.14 after the holiday advertising frenzy subsided.

The Web as we know it, however, is being threatened in different ways. Some of its most successful inhabitants have begun to chip away at its principles. Large social-networking sites are walling off information posted by their users from the rest of the Web. Wireless Internet providers are being tempted to slow traffic to sites with which they have not made deals.
We Recommend These Resources I'm sure by now that most people with an interest in Android and mobile technologies would have seen this video of the Linux on the iPhone guys running Android on an iPhone . When I heard about this first, I wasn't sure that it would be worth changing the OS on the iPhone to Android. However, in this video you'll see that there is a dual boot option.
Since I'm launching this new design, let's begin with a few updates on various projects. Raspberry Pi - Status: Hiatus I'd still like to see Chrome on Raspberry Pi fly, but I don't have time for it at present, and I'm kinda at a dead end in terms of where to go with it. It's not dead, so I might have something to share with you in the future for this one.
There has been some ... interesting news from the tech sector this week. Firstly, the Apple vs. Adobe vendetta gets even nastier, with a public letter from Steve Jobs explaining why Adobe's Flash multimedia format will not ever be allowed into the garden of pure ideology that is the iPhone/iPad fork of OSX.
