Apparently a bunch of geeks get together and solve puzzles over a weekend at this Boston-area event, which kicked off this morning. Shame that it starts on a Friday, though. That precludes a Boston-area person from participating in it, unless they took a personal day… wait a second.
Are you a subscriber to some sort of periodical, perhaps a magazine or newspaper, who is wondering why you can’t get free access to the iPad edition of that periodical as a part of your subscription? This story might explain things. Several European newspapers are reporting that Apple doesn’t want to allow that approach, because it elbows Apple out of its 30-percent cut.
As an employee of a magazine that still publishes on those dead trees, I recuse myself from making any jokes about this one. Sorry.
