Nine Years of iPhone ➝

Luke Dormehl, writing for Cult of Mac:

There are no prizes for guessing the significance of today’s “Today in Apple history” installment. On 29 June 2007, the first generation iPhone went on sale — causing massive queues of Apple fans lining up outside Apple Stores around the United States.

I waited in line for seven hours and was the third person at my local AT&T store to walk out with an iPhone. I remember one of the employees telling me as I walked in, “we have demo units if you’d like to try it out before buying.” To which I replied, “that won’t be necessary.”

Apple: Quit Weighing Things on Your iPhone 6s ➝

Luke Dormehl, writing for Cult of Mac about a scale app’s rejection from the App Store:

Called Gravity, they submitted it to the App Store, only to have it rejected for “having a misleading description.” To show the app in action, the team then submitted a video to Apple, but were told that “the concept of a scale app was not appropriate for the App Store.”

I could see why Apple doesn’t like the idea of applications which encourage users to put heavy objects on their iPhone to see how much they weigh.
