Fixing bugs requires a cooperative effort between users and those of us who work on the product.
Security Cannot Be Spun
The worst aspect of the recent security issues hasn't been the vulnerabilities themselves,but Apple's response to them.
Perhaps here's something the brand new iPod division in Apple can ponder on... invent a headphone / earphone that is aware when the user has it on the ears.
This is so that the iPod / iTunes / RealPlayer / Windows Media Player can automagically sense that the user has removed the headphone from the ears, and can proceed to pause the current tune / audiobook / broadcast for the user.
Jakob Nielsen: Companies that emphasize a good user interface can get a huge competitive advantage. Apple is really a good example of that.
In case you didn't notice, I do have a simple weblog called The Tomorrow Weblog. Now that the movie version is out, perhaps I should do something over there? Any suggestions? :-)
