More on the New Apple Rules

Wow, Adobe's evangelist, Lee Brimelow, is really unhappy:

Me deciding not to give money to Apple is not going to do anything to their bottom line. But this is equivalent to me walking into Macy’s to buy a new wallet and the salesperson spits in my face. Chances are I won’t be buying my wallets at Macy’s anymore, no matter how much I like them.

Meanwhile, I have to differ with John Gruber's take on Kindle on Mac:

Consider, for one example, Amazon’s Kindle clients for iPhone OS and Mac OS X. The iPhone OS Kindle app is excellent, a worthy rival in terms of experience to Apple’s own iBooks. The Mac Kindle app is a turd that doesn’t look, feel, or behave like a real Mac app.

I just asked my wife, who's used both, and she didn't say anything like that. In fact, her initial take is that the Mac version is easier to use. Gruber is the classic tech weenie who doesn't ever talk to actual users, but is convinced that he knows what they think.
