You’re breaking the internet!

April 24, 2009


EPIC FAIL. This is the message i get when i try to download the virtual zippo lighter, one of the top free itunes app store applications.
iphone_zipunlit_480wOMGWTF! In the olden days, the internet used to be a sanctuary from bone-headed restrictions of this kind. Now I’m seeing it each and every day, and it’s growing fast. Seems that somewhere, a bunch of evil, evil people are trying to turn the interweb into cable tv and turn the clock back to 1990.

That I’m restricted from watching BBC online and Hulu makes sense from the markets evil, greedy vermin standpoint, even if it makes my blood boil.

But where in focks sake is the reason for Apple restricting me from downloading a free app from the app store? Is it to protect the poor, destitute Zippo corporation from bankruptcy?

This shit positively will not stand. I’m going ninja on these mothers. Get me a VPN right now! Ipredator, what’s the holdup?

    It’s not Apple, it’s the developer. Blame him.

    It’s Apple in the sense that they’ve given the developer the tools to exclude people. Of course i realize the rules of the market, but it used to be that these tools were used to create better services for people, not restricting them. Now all i see is “this is not avaliable in your market”. But what is? When are these tools ever used to give me as a consumer a better service or experience? Where the frak is my free zippo lighter?
