Daniel Eran Dilger

Are Java and Flash doomed on the Mac?

Daniel Eran Dilger

Apple left Sun’s Java and Adobe’s Flash off the iPhone in 2007, resulting in a death-stroke for both in the mobile arena as the iOS attained its influential position. Will the same happen on the Mac?

Media kit for reporting on Steve Jobs & Apple: Understanding & Spinning Rants

Daniel Eran Dilger

This media kit is being made available to keep your staff writers on message when reporting on Apple Inc, as opposed to every other tech company. Please do not stray from these guidelines, or Apple’s competitors might be induced to actually fight to contest in a competitive market, rather than being lulled into complacency while making meaninglessly trite responses.

Daniel Eran Dilger

After a couple years of collecting little more than hobbyist shareware supported primarily by ads rather than commercially viable software, Google’s Android platform is finally engaging the interest of a major developer. Unfortunately, it’s not the kind of interest Google wants.

Exclusive emails from Jesus Christ!

Daniel Eran Dilger

Nobody else has printed email replies from the chief executive of Christianity. That makes this exchange, which I paid a source hundreds of dollars for, newsworthy and legitimate, even if it’s all just sensationalized banter between somebody important and recognizable and a drunk nobody. I expect leading media sources from around the world to syndicate this as hard news.
