Just pulled my brand new ipad from the box, anxious to check my sales and guess what – can’t load any marketplace website. I have internet, I’m loading other sites without a problem. Anyone else with similar experience?

Seems cool, I’m always looking for ways to bring traffic to my items. One question though – does Pinterest give you any stats like clicks, views etc?

Still waiting for an invite btw.

It’s my second item that’s being held by the review team and to be honest, I think my blood pressure just dropped a bit :dead: I keep thinking that I will get a hard reject or a “lol” over email.. what about you? How do you feel when your items are held?

P.S. Don’t take this topic seriously :D

I find myself googling for hacks and workarounds to get things working on all browsers and devices, which is a real real pain. As said by Jack, I was using Flash because it was perfect, reliable and it worked. Now we have retina displays which might revive vector graphics, but we had this already a decade ago. Thanks Apple.

I will have a big smile on my face a year from now when more and more people drop support for IE8 . It’s the only browser (from my research) that doesn’t support SVG . And on a retina display it will make all the difference for the users, compared with normal images. SVG is the future in my opinion!

P.S. Aren’t SVG files also really really small?

I have a Samsung Omnia and in general, I am pretty happy with it. I would prefer an iOS phone, but I got the samsung just because it would do the job (email, browsing, social networks and the occasional app) and it was twice as cheap as an iPhone. Event three times cheaper if I’m not mistaken. The iPhone is ridiculously expensive here – about $800 with a high end 2 year plan.

So yeah.

My impressions: 1. Battery – terrible, I must charge it every night.
2. OS – very nice, good looking, snappy and easy to use.
3. Browser – very good, but for some reason I can’t really test the mobile stuff that I’m coding, because touch events don’t work :) I guess they are exclusive to safari or something.
4. Apps – there are some apps, but don’t hope for an app ecosystem like on iOS. You can browse the WP7 store from their site I think. I went ahead and checked what’s available before I bought the phone, and it was goo enough for me.
5. Email – beautiful interface, a pleasure to use.

Overall it was worth the money.
