iTunes is pretty much a galaxy unto itself these days and is in danger of collapsing into a black hole. Time to split it out.

this post has interesting ideas, for example it suggests have a human readable (let’s say json like) interface for different tools (instead of applications) to communicate with each other, and separate, let’s say, email client functionality by modules - service which receives emails, tool to view the list of emails, tool to view an exact email, and every module can be changed without affecting the other.

Does this sound ridiculous, a perverse #fantasy of some balkanized #Web of the #dystopian #future?  Nope: it’s all true, except that my #laptop is actually an #iPad and my #browser is #iTunes / #iBooks. 


On the Web, the very idea that the right to read a website would vary from country to country seems patently absurd. #Cyberspace is flat, after all, just computers talking to computers. You, the reader, do not need to concern yourself with where these electrons on your screen are coming from, and neither do I, their publisher, need to care where they are going. And when somebody attempts to artificially block those #electrons — say, #China and its #Great-Firewall — it’s the kind of the thing that the #US #Congress and the #World Trade Organization get worked up about
