It’s a big 1-0 for everyone’s “favorite” music store, which has evolved far beyond its humble Rip, Mix, Burn origins to become the digital hub for a new generation of digital devices. Happy birthday, iTunes Music Store, and here’s hoping that you make it out of your adolescence wiser and more mature.
Also this week: The results of Apple’s most recently concluded fiscal quarter are in the books, and while the company continued to make money hand over fist there are some troublesome signs for analysts: eroding margins and the possibility of the high-end smartphone market (where the iPhone owns the roost) starting to squeeze.
Apple’s response, in part, is to return more cash to its shareholders (via dividends) and repurchase outstanding shares. Apple’s even getting into the debt markets to finance these programs, rather than repatriating overseas profits and facing a hefty tax bill.

With the 10th anniversary of the iTunes Music Store coming up this Sunday, Apple on Tuesday reported its digital storefront, which now includes music, video, apps, and e-books, hit record-breaking revenues of over $ 4.1 billion for the second quarter of 2013.
In a rare public admission of hindsight, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said on Tuesday that he wishes his company had waited until 2013 to launch its redesigned iMac, which remained in short supply through the end of 2012.
One of the big stories yesterday was about the AppGratis app discovery and deals app being pulled from the App Store. As the story developed, there was confusion about what exactly caused Apple to yank the popular app (it has over twelve million users) — was it something simple like instability and crashes that forced Apple’s hand, or was Apple making a statement about apps that are violating certain guidelines? Today AppGratis CEO Simon Dawlat published a long statement on the company blog telling his side of the story.
Dawlat started by relating how he first heard about the app being pulled when he got off of an airplane in São Paulo, Brazil and received notifications for “over 75 missed calls, and an seemingly infinite flow of unread text messages.” Next, he reassured the millions of users of the app that even though the app is “momentarily unavailable,” anyone who downloaded the app prior to last Friday will still receive continued information about free apps and “cool discounts.”
Some speculation came out yesterday that the company may have used questionable tactics to grab more than 5 percent of the US iOS marketshare. Several developers I talked with about the AppGratis situation were critical of the company’s business model, in which app developers pay for placement to drive up the rank of their apps. A Forbes article from February highlights this practice, where Dawlat himself describes how AppGratis moves developers up the charts and then grabs the app revenue for a set amount of time as payment. In other words, it’s more of an advertising service than an app recommendation service.
Dawlat’s blog post then describes which clauses in the iOS Developer Guidelines were questioned by Apple. The latest version of the app was actually approved by Apple on April 4, 2013 — the day before it was pulled from the App Store. As reported by AllThingsD yesterday, Clause 5.6 — dealing with the use of push notifications to send advertising, promotions, or direct marketing — was to blame. Additionally, Clause 2.25 prohibits apps that display apps “other than your own” for purchase or promotion.
Dawlat found the push notification complaint to be somewhat foolish, saying that “…we only send one ‘system notification’ a day to our users, coming in the form of a generic, opt-in only ‘Today’s deal is here!’ message.” That practice is based on Apple’s own recommendation on how to use the push notification service.
The AppGratis CEO recounted phone calls yesterday with Apple, noting that they “…basically couldn’t go beyond repeating multiple times that our app had been pulled due to guideline 2.25 and 5.6.” Dawlat finished his post by listing his email address and stating that “If someone in charge at Apple reads this and wants to discuss the matter more in-depth, I’m happy to jump over to Cupertino anytime to prove to you that we’re on a mission for good.” He also asks happy users of AppGratis — both on the end user side and developers — to share his post.
The AppGratis situation has far-reaching implications for other app discovery apps, and this story is far from being at an end.

Question by Strong Happy Marriage: How long did it take to get your I-pad when you ordered it from the Apple store online? Ok, so I ordered my I-pad from the Apple store online on December 30th and it says the estimated arrival date is January 10th. That seems like a long time. To those of you that have ordered them from the Apple store online, how long did it take to get yours? And is it actually gonna take this long? It has shipped. Standard shipping if that helps. And i had it engraved which delayed shipping a couple of days. I am just excited and hoping that it will get here sooner than that.
Answer by ChipIt’s very common for more popular products like the iPad to get backlogged during the holidays. Even after Christmas the backlog still has to be worked through. If it’s actually shipped though then it should be 3-5 business days from the ship date. They should have sent you an email with the tracking number so you can see exactly where the package is.
