Jan 12th 2010 6:54PM It's quite a logical leap to start with "Apple controls what you can put on devices running embedded OS X" and conclude "Therefore, Apple wants to control what you can put on Mac computers." Yeah, just like Sony controls what you can put on the PlayStation, and liked that so much they've locked down what you can put on Sony computers! Oh, wait. They don't do that, because IT WOULD KILL THEIR COMPUTER LINE DEAD. If even Sony understands this basic fact of the marketplace, you don't think Apple understands it? Really?
Personally, I don't see Apple saying: "Hey, after a quarter-century of letting you put anything you want on your computers, we're going to make it impossible for you to run any application that isn't digitally signed by Apple. If you rely on some piece of software that we haven't signed yet, or we refuse to sign, well, guess it sucks to be you!"
Jun 25th 2009 6:54PM Hey Dude (ha): with all respect, machaca is just the meat -- if you turn it into a breakfast dish with egg, it's "machaca con heuvo." And you don't start with jerky; you're drying the beef out in the process of cooking it ("reduce liquid until the meat is almost dry"). What you're describing is a shortcut to machaca con heuvo by starting out with the meat pre-dried, and there's nothing wrong with that -- but it doesn't make Batali's recipe wrong, either.
