Cutting the cord.Posted: June 7, 2011
Apple’s “iOS” devices, like the iPhone and iPad, are basically little computers. So I’ve always found it annoying that you have to hook them up to a “real” (i.e. larger) computer to activate them. Until they are activated, your iPhone and iPad are just really expensive and ineffective doorstops.
That won’t be the case for long, though, according to today’s news out of WWDC. Apple is cutting the proverbial cord, and iOS devices will be ready to rock right out of the box.

This is so awesome. A moviegoer got kicked out of a movie theater for texting, and she left this (profane) voicemail. (Seriously, Mom, it is a profane voicemail, so don’t click on that link.) Two lessons here: be considerate of your fellow moviegoers, and be polite when you leave voicemails.
Spielberg talks about Jaws and some of his other cool movies in this excellent interview at AintItCool.com.
Like I was saying yesterday, digital comics should be cheaper.
I’m kind of sad this didn’t really happen.
