I was on the phone with a US television executive who has never released an app through the app store. I was trying to explain that the problem with the app store is that you don’t control the release: Apple does, and does so without favor or exception.
He said, to paraphrase: well, Apple will respond well to us because we’re a big network and we’re used to getting our way. Somewhere in the Mitt Romney camp, which will now wait for the update in which America is spelled correctly, some poor “digital” person is having the same awful conversation about why it can’t be updated right away. That may be the only person in Mitt Romney’s organization I feel sorry for, but I do feel sorry for them.
