Re: Scrivener for iPad

Wow Stike. I thought I was unhappy with this move. :wink: WWDC will show us what lies ahead. Lets hope I am wrong with my wild accusations, and gladly I often am. "If I were running Apple, I would milk the Macintosh for all it's worth -- and get busy on the next great thing. The PC wars are ov...

Re: Scrivener for iPad

I was quite an Apple fan not too long ago, then I got my 3GS, because I decided that this device finally has everything I wanted - including tethering in OS 3.0. Then suddenly with 3.1, Apple decided that they remove the tethering feature which was not even affecting me since I had a factory-unlocke...

Re: Scrivener for iPad

http://venturebeat.com/2010/02/02/apple-makes-developer-remove-usb-sharing-from-stanza-iphone-app/ Saw this and thought it quite relevant in regard to apples treatment of developers and not wanting pages facing competition. Ah! THAT was the reason for the update I refused to install today! Apples p...

Re: Scrivener for iPad

So far as I can see as yet, and as has been pointed out by others, the iPad looks like a wonderful means of content consumption, but I still don't see it as a surefire contender as a decent content production tool. EXACTLY. This device is solely a consumer device. You use it to view, watch, read, h...

Re: Scrivener for iPad

THANK YOU, Keith, for not giving in to this closed Appstore environment philosophy. I am upset about Apple going the iPhone OS route, thus limiting the possibilities you have to create software and USE software for this device. Apple though, well, they love that. They have control and earn money wit...

Re: Poll: Product activation in the garden of good and evil

Could this post be usefull? Thanks for trying, but I disagree. Even those methods can still be hacked/cracked and released without the necessary information to trace the origin of the serial. You may make it just a bit harder for the casual pirate, but you wont change anything in the long run. Not ...

Re: Poll: Product activation in the garden of good and evil

I dont really mind, as an honest customer, as long as the software doesnt treat me as a pirate. Like for example EA who really start things like "Oh, no internet connection, no game" and all that crap. The thing is, you cant REALLY prevent it. There will always be serials roaming the net, ...

Re: Working off of network drives (MobileMe; DropBox...)

I heard that the next step in the Dropbox update is support for file system specific oddities, such as Mac OS X´s package file formats... as soon as they figured that out, it should be relatively safe to use it even on Scrivener files.

Let´s hope for the best - and be prepared for the worst ;)

Very sorry to hear that, Vic. I wish your wife a speedy recovery.
Also, I am pretty sure I will miss your infamous postings here ;)

Re: Languages?

Hi, I am offering myself as YAGT (yet another German translator), so in case it might be necessary, I can do some things about the German version as well!

Re: Why Write Anyways?

Why write? Simple. You want to change the world. Maybe it is your world, maybe someone else´s world, but you are really looking for it. And in the end, maybe just by accident, you changed the real whole damn world. And that is the dream. Edit: Looking at registration date and date of first post... H...
