    "Life expectancy of 2 years? Really?

     

    In a related story: GM has announced that all vehicles manufactured prior to December 31st, 2012 will cease to work when the 2014 model is introduced. If your car ceases to function due to this built in obsolescence while you are driving on the freeway, please pull off the travelled portion of the highway as quickly as possible.

    Something must be wrong with my original iPad.  I bought it nearly four years ago and it still works just fine.

    Can you reinstall or install the latest bug fix for The PDF Max Pro App?

    Will the App Store let you purchase and install it?

     

    If not, then why not?

     

    This is not an isolated case.

    Not one of those have any official information. They are all offshoots of a release by one "usually reliable Apple Source", comments from other reporters, repeat ad nauseum. And it is geared around an expected June release date. But the last two versions (and iPhones) were on Oct. 12 and Sept. 12. Why would 7 be expected in June?

     

    And you need to contact the developer of Max PDF Pro about your other problem.

    Apparently that app has not received Apple approval and can be loaded only on a jailbroke device.

  • deggie Level 8 Level 8 (44,870 points)

    I just looked it up in the App Store, it is available as a Pro and free app, requires iOS 6. If he wants the developer to make an earlier version available like the Whatsapp people did then he needs to contact the developer.

  • Philly_Phan Level 6 Level 6 (11,010 points)

    Apparently I mis-typed but I couldn't find it.  However, your point regarding the developer is quite valid.

    * Fortune, 2/19/1996: “By the time you read this story, the quirky cult company…will end its wild ride as an independent enterprise.”

     

    * Time Magazine, 2/5/96: “One day Apple was a major technology company with assets to make any self respecting techno-conglomerate salivate. The next day Apple was a chaotic mess without a strategic vision and certainly no future.”

     

    * BusinessWeek, 10/16/95: “Having underforecast demand, the company has a $1 billion-plus order backlog….The only alternative: to merge with a company with the marketing and financial clout to help Apple survive the switch to a software-based company. The most likely candidate, many think, is IBM Corp.”

     

    * A Forrester Research analyst, 1/25/96 (quoted in, of all places, The New York Times): “Whether they stand alone or are acquired, Apple as we know it is cooked. It’s so classic. It’s so sad.”

     

    * Nathan Myhrvold (Microsoft’s chief technology officer, 6/97: “The NeXT purchase is too little too late. Apple is already dead.”

     

    * Wired, “101 Ways to Save Apple,” 6/97: “1. Admit it. You’re out of the hardware game.”

     

    * BusinessWeek, 2/5/96: “There was so much magic in Apple Computer in the early ’80s that it is hard to believe that it may fade away. Apple went from hip to has-been in just 19 years.”

     

    * Fortune, 2/19/1996: “Apple’s erratic performance has given it the reputation on Wall Street of a stock a long-term investor would probably avoid.”

     

    * The Economist, 2/23/95: “Apple could hang on for years, gamely trying to slow the decline, but few expect it to make such a mistake. Instead it seems to have two options. The first is to break itself up, selling the hardware side. The second is to sell the company outright.”

     

    * The Financial Times, 7/11/97: “Apple no longer plays a leading role in the $200 billion personal computer industry. ‘The idea that they’re going to go back to the past to hit a big home run…is delusional,’ says Dave Winer, a software developer.”

    Amazing that so many articles could be so very, very wrong isn't it?
