MacBreak Weekly 153: The Case Against Apple

by Jonathan Downin in TechAugust 12th, 2009 @ 10:59 am

MacBreak WeeklyTWiT favorite and Mahalo head-hancho, Jason Calacanis, wrote a scathing essay titled The Case Against Apple–in Five Parts wherein he airs his grievances with Apple’s recent actions.  He has some fair points, but Alex and Andy aren’t quite on the same page.  What everyone can agree on is that Apple could be a little more open to the benefit of everyone.

Rumors, which seem to be the lifeblood of the Apple community, are flying about new features that may be coming to iTunes 9.  While Blu-ray support is among those, the guys focus on new “social” features that may or may not be coming to Apple’s media management software., Facebook and Twitter integration are touted as possibly in line for direct integration.

In smaller news, there is now an antiglare screen option for the 15″ MacBook Pro for an extra $50.

Calacanis’ criticisms, social iTunes, antiglare MacBook Pro, Facebook/Friendfeed, and more.
