How's that Xserve doing?

The Xserve has absolutely nothing to do with how easy it is to develop
mobile apps for iOS and Android. HARD FAIL. Troll harder. That attempt
was pitiful.


Jolly, did your education include reading comprehension? nospam asserted
Apple is not solely focused on consumers. My reply was their attempted
foray into the enterprise world was a failure.

Note: I am not saying iPad and iPhones cannot serve as thin clients in
an enterprise environment, but then so can a Chromebook.

there's *much* more to enterprise than just xserve. much, much more.

two different use cases.

ipads and iphones have *very* powerful processors and can do a *lot*
more than just be a thin client, whereas that's about all a chromebook
is.

for education, chromebook is a very good choice. if one is damaged (and
kids will definitely damage them), replace it, log in and continue.

no single product works for every use case. pick the best tool for the
job.

Please just name one (link) if that's the case.

LOL, you often see inquiries for an iOS app with all the functionality
of Torque Pro. Unfortunately there's no such animal.


Bullshit. You obviously haven’t looked very hard.

I’ve been using the Carista BLE Bluetooth adapter with the OBD Fusion iOS
app for a while now, and it is such an animal. It works great on multiple
cars I’ve used it with:

Crappy app there. No thanks.

OBD Fusion is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 4820 people on the iOS App Store.

Still puzzled as to why the Bluetooth SPP profile was left out of iOS.
No one has ever had a good answer to that.

because spp is obsolete.

bluetooth 4/le is *much* easier to use, both for users and developers,
as well as being faster and more reliable.

Quote:
SPP is used by a huge number of industrial devices which can't
have apps on iOS which is a shame.


actually, very few.

and if those manufacturers updated their hardware to bluetooth le, they
likely wouldn't need to write an app since bluetooth le has numerous
standard characteristics that are *already* natively supported by ios.

as i said, spp is obsolete.

Don't you love the footnote on their web site: "Generic ELM327 Bluetooth
adapters are not compatible with OBD Fusion for iOS. This is a
limitiation of iOS, not OBD Fusion."

But it does look like a good app. Glad to see that 4820 users have rated
it, and that it got such a high rating. OTOH, Torque Pro has a 4.5
rating, and 55,575 ratings and more than a million downloads. Could be
because OBD Fusion is more than 2x the price. $5 seems to be the price
point where people will not think about the cost of an app.

I don't love or hate it, because it doesn't affect my ability to use the
Carista BLE Bluetooth adapter (or any other) AT. FUCKING. ALL. I
couldn't care less whether some shitty adapter won't work, because I
won't be using one anyway.

> But it does look like a good app.

It *is* a good app. And despite your false claims, it *does* compete
directly with Torque Pro, and does a *good* job of it.

And yet still has a lower rating. : ) Not that I care about your little
pissing contest. The point is despite your false claim, there *are*
quality OBD apps for iOS.

If you can't afford $9.99, you should probably ask for a raise. Just
make sure you have the skills to back it up first. Good luck!.

Because it's not needed. Your insistence otherwise won't change that.

And no shortage of OBD Bluetooth adapters that work just fine with those
iOS apps. It's almost as if sms is blowing hot air. #SHOCKER

I love when Jolly Roger posts because he is the epitome of an iOS user!
*Jolly Roger literally enjoys iOS' astronomical overall cost of ownership!*

In fact, when it comes time for "logical argument", the main argument Jolly
Roger displays is that if you can't afford to pay twice as much for half
the performance, then you shouldn't be on iOS in the first place.

That's why I _love_ when Jolly Roger posts for all iOS users!

I love when Jolly Roger writes because he can't hide his true feelings.
He's the PERFECT example of the thought process of the average iOS user!

Jolly Roger clearly has his iOS religious convictions.
Of that, there is no doubt.

*Yet, none of Jolly Roger's arguments ever stand up to logical scrutiny.*
His _only_ argument is that the less-functional app is twice the price!

And he shoves that twice-the-price for half-the-performance in sms' face.
As if paying twice as much for half the functionality is a badge of honor!

I LOVE when Jolly Roger posts!
I really do.

I'm serious.
He can't hide his true feelings.

*Jolly Roger _enjoys_ iOS' astronomical overall cost of ownership!*
