Fans Outraged by CD Projekt Red Trademarking “Cyberpunk”

Fans Outraged by CD Projekt Red Trademarking “Cyberpunk”

I have been known to blow things out of proportion on occasion.  For those of you who know me, you can attest to this.  But as I read an article today, I started to wonder if I, the over reactor is under reacting to something?  Or do I just not get what all the fuss is about?  According to Gizmodo, the makers of The Witchers franchise started a process for trademarking the word “cyberpunk”.  Fans seemed to lose their cool with this one, and accused CD Projekt Red of doing this for nefarious reasons.  Umm… what claim do they have to back that up?  There are trademark rules, and anyone can attempt to trade mark a word or phrase, so long as it falls into those rules.  Further, who cares?  I mean, does the trade marking of a word impact the fans that much?

I guess maybe the first issue, for me, is that I legitimately don’t support anything with such passion.  So don’t take my comments as negative.  I am simply trying to understand this.  Also, I’ve been trying to be less reactive to situations.  As I said, I have a tendency to blow things out of proportion.  So I totally get where the fans are coming from, but at the same time, we need to look at it from the big picture. The article goes on to further say that you can’t trademark the word “cyberpunk” because it would be like trademarking “romantic comedy”.  … Read the rest

Hackstore: Is it Cydia for the Mac?

Hackstore: Is it Cydia for the Mac?

When you hear the Hackstore; the first thing that comes to mind i s well…Hacks. That however is not the case with this off the grid store.  HackStore is one  a centralized place  for third-party developers of  OS X applications to showcase applications that Apple will not approve. This of it as  Cydia but for software. Cydia is the alternative to app store on your jailbroken iDevice. Apple may not approve of jailbreaking or the Cydia store but that has not stopped them from blatantly stealing ideas from its developers. The most recent example is Wifi Sync for the iPhone. It was such a good idea that Apple incorporated it into iOS 5. They even kept the same logo that the developer came up with.

The point is that alternative app stores are where developers can get their apps out into the world. Its a way around the wall garden that Apple has setup. Also known as Apple’s approval process. The developers of Hackstore say that piracy will not be tolerated in their app store. Although just like Cydia, there are a lot of “crack” repos. If you want to give the  Hackstore a try. You can Download it for the Mac OS X.… Read the rest
