  • What good is a Bible program that doesn't allow:

    Without the ability to print what good would a Bible program be? Not being able to print out passages and the likes takes about 50% of the usefullness away from ANY Bible program.
    In fact what good is the Ipad without the ability to print? I guess it puts it into the realm of being a TOY at worst and just another ebook reader at best. This is not even to say anyting about how the Ipad doesn't allow sdcards, and the list goes on and on

    I was under the impression ZDNet was a News Magazine

    Are you also planning to show exerpts of the Qur'an, Tipitaka Necromicon, Torah, Tao Te Ching? I find it insulting that only Christianism is being blatantly placated over this image gallery. Not that I think there is anything wrong with Christianism, but there is plenty wrong with someone pretending to report on tech gadgets while pushing their theological views on others.

    As for the priting part, I seem to remember a few applications for the iPhone that allow you to create a PDF of any data on the mobile device, and another that sends that data to any network printers, so it seems to me that Apple just decided to let that complex issue be delt with by other parties.

    • placating "Christiansm" . . . seriously?

      This blog was clearly about using the iPad as an e-reader and not some kind of evangelical conspiracy. Perhaps there are some who may be interested in reading something about a reader for the Qur'an or some other faith, but none of the apps that I have seen (for the iPhone at least, I'm still on the fence about the iPad) for Islamic, Buddhist, or other religious texts offer the immersive experience that he was demonstrating. So I found this to be quite helpful. However, using your logic, it would seem he is also pushing Amazonism or Apple-ism as well. Now I'm offended!

      • Placarding is actually the right word...

        I have absolutely nothing against Christianity, however when I'm trying to find out as much about the iPad before purchasing one, and stumble on a blog such as this where pretty much 50% of the images are purposely selected to deliver a message during Easter week end (i.e. Matthew 28 , John 3:16), I do indeed call it placarding of ones personal religious views. The photo gallery I clicked on was "Image Gallery: Apple iPad Experience Series", not one which would have led me to believe that it was religiously driven.
        How would you have felt, if for example you had clicked on the same link and landed on pictures which displayed a Pro-Abortion message, or one which had multiple anti-Christian rethoric? But while displaying the message above, it also nonchalently displayed the various functions of the iPad. My guess is that you would have been either insulted, disgusted, angered, and would have prompted you to express those feelings.
        Just for the record, I'm not saying that a blog should not have Christian content, but that the Christian content in this case is being pushed onto folks who are just trying to get information on a Tech Gadget. The "Holman Christian Standard Bible" should be addressed in a separate blog intended for that purpose.
        As for your notion, that my logic would imply that he is pushing Amazonism, or Apple-ism doesn't really make sense, since the iPad has been dubbed a "Kindle Killer", yet Amazon is providing access to the Kindle eLibrary. So in this case it is an appropriate, informational piece of info. Apple-ism, well considering the iPad is made by Apple, it would be my decision to review info on Apple products.
        So if you thought I was attacking Christianism, then you're wrong. I'm only offended by the way the message is being delivered under the guise of another (i.e. "Death and resurection of Jesus, who is Gods only begotten son and whom will lead the believers to everlasting life" instead of the "Apple iPad Experience Series")

        • still disagree

          I was not concerned that you were "attacking"
          Christianity, you are welcome to your opinion
          whatever it is. I just think your
          interpretation of the blog is a bit hyper-
          sensitive. He wrote in the blog
          description "the Apple iPad is now available
          for purchase and through this new series I will
          be discussing different aspects of the device
          as it relates to life and daily usage. The
          Series will cover Bible applications, ebook
          readers, TV content, sports, games, and more."
          So there should be no surprise that he would be
          reviewing Bible applications. And there should
          be no surprises that there will be BIBLE
          VERSES in the bible applications. Yes, the
          verses fit the Christian calendar, but I still
          don't see the problem. If he had quoted the 10
          commandments or some passage relating to the
          passover, would you have felt he was
          placating Judaism? It just seems like a stretch
          to me. If I was not interested in a religious
          text, I would have skipped those pictures, not
          look for some reason to be offended.

          So if I clicked on the link and found that one
          of the ebook readers had a pro-abortion
          message, I wouldn't "feel" something one way or
          another as long as he showed me how the ebook
          reader worked. If I were to be offended by
          people that disagreed with me I would
          stay offended, and if I only learned from
          people who agree with me, I would never learn.

          It seems you missed the fact that I was being
          sarcastic about the apple-ism, kindle-ism etc.
          My point is that just because he shows a
          certain reader, whether it is by apple or
          amazon, or shows a religions application,
          whether it be Christian or Hindu, that
          does not equal promotion of that particular
          company or religion. And later when he shows a
          sports app, he's going to probably show a
          sports team. And I won't feel like he's
          placating a particular sport or
          particular sports team either. Maybe I'm just
          too easy going.

  • My Final Rebuttal to This Topic

    You state that I'm being hypersensitive to the content of this blog and that I should overlook the pictorial content and just focus on the iPad functionality being demonstrated. As to whether I am being hyper sensitive, it is very possible; after all, if the content had been a Beavis and Butthead cartoon, I more than likely would not have replied. It is very likely that I would not have replied, and just moved on to another blog, had the first text discussed been Huckleberry Finn. I probably would have glanced at some of the images presented, reached the religious content and made a decision at that time as to whether continue to browse that blog or seek another. But that's my whole point: Religious Doctrines are Polarizing. This is why if you intend to address an audience as large as the world wide web, one should always be cautious of the content they present as it is bound to generate emotions that are unexpected, and which can be deemed hypersensitive.

    You state that if you came across a similar blog, discussing a topic of interest to you, and the content being displayed was not one you aspired to, you would nonchalantly dismiss it and focus only on the features being presented. Well, if right in the middle of the display the following text appeared (I apologize for the text, I'm not trying to be derogatory, just trying to make a point): "F___ Y__ Jesus!", and that text was used to demonstrate how you can bold it, and enlarge it, make it red, blink, etc... I seriously doubt that a visceral feeling would not come over you. I'm not equating the text I just proposed with the message delivered in this blog, just the fact that in both cases the reader is being forced to endure it under the pretense that this is just a Tech Gadget Review Blog.

    Now to your point that the author of the blog clearly described his intent at the landing page, I'll say two things:

    a) As I previously stated, I reached this blog from a ZDNet Cover Story discussing the introduction of the iPad to the world on Easter week-end. I wasn't seeking salvation, or forgiveness, I was just looking for information on a Tech Gadget I'm considering purchasing, so when I clicked on the link that directed me to this blog, it first startled me, and then angered me that I would be led to the "message' whether I wanted it or not. (Coincidently, I happen to read an article from Matthew Miller from the 4th of April and that article he does discuss creating this blog for the purpose of reviewing Bible Applications. It might surprise you to know that I did not have a complete meltdown. Why, because in this context the blog made sense and I would have expected religious content as I clicked on the link)

    b) Although the religious content does come with the territory of reviewing Bible Applications, I still think the choice of content, though topical, was not the best. The Ten Commandments would probably not have been appropriate either as they also elicit strong emotional reactions in some. However, the introduction to Genesis is rarely a text which offends people of any religion. It is accepted into the folklore of many people, and even more agnostic scientific minds are capable of reading it without wanting to gouge their eyes out.

    In closing, I'll first thank you for continuing the debate without anger and libels. From your responses, I do get the sense you are a sensible person. It is nice to be able to agree to disagree. From what I now know, this misunderstanding indeed came from the person who edited the initial page I reached, and included this Blog as a mean of reviewing the iPad, but did so out of context. It is strange that the Blog makes no mention of the parent article.

    Here's the link by the way in case you have not seen it, or if another reader happened to reach this blog the same way I did: http://blogs.zdnet.com/mobile-gadgeteer/?p=2840&tag=content;col1
    Thank you for an interesting discussion. :-)

    • You're Welcome

      I understand that religious doctrine can be
      divisive. Even among people of like faiths. It
      was just the word "placating" that caught my
      eye. It seemed a bit strong. After all, just
      about any topic can be divisive. Even the
      choice of books he chose to show in the e-
      readers library could offend some. But as far
      as passages of the bible go, I think he could
      have shown far more offensive passages if you
      know what I mean. And there are far more
      "evangelistic" passages that he could have
      chosen, that had he done so, I would have been
      more likely to agree to your initial post.
      After all, you can hardly watch an American
      football game without some guy holding up a
      sign with John 3:16 on it. And with all the
      debates going on about about how science should
      be taught, even Genesis 1 is probably more
      polarizing statistically than even Matthew 28.
      I just read that some guy from the US got
      arrested and fined in England a week or so ago
      for reading out loud one of the more
      controversial passages from Paul in a church.
      That probably wouldn't have been the wisest
      choice of passages for showing off a bible app
      :) As a whole it seems that it would be really
      hard to review a Bible application without
      offending someone. Many, I'm sure, would just
      prefer that those apps be skipped in the first
      place.

      Also,you are right, there would be some things
      that would offend me such as the example you
      mentioned. It would have offended me if I saw
      a derogatory message against any spiritual
      leader from Jesus, to Mohammed, to Reverend Sun
      Myung Moon. I just didn't see it in this case.
      To me, since it was a bible app, and in most
      circumstances you kind of know what you're
      getting there, just about any verse would be
      less shocking than if he was pushing a
      particular political party or, using your
      example, promoting pro-life or pro-choice. But
      I will concede, that I had more info from my
      link to the blog than you did which obviously
      provided you more of a surprise.

      Anyway, thank you as well. We probably agree
      on more points than we don't, but it was nice
      to have a civil and respectful debate.

    I thought that you religious folks didn't need to print any passages out when you can memorize them and spew them ad nauseum at people

  • RE: LifeChurch.tv Bible HD (Image Gallery: Apple iPad Experience Series)

    apparently I paid no attention to the subtitle of the post,
    and thought it was just an iPad usage article... I thought
    when I read the bible passage that there was going to be some
    joke about how the iPad is a resurrected technology device
    stolen from another company and works about as well as the
    original. then as I got to the bottom of the passage, I
    began to think there would also be a joke about how apple was
    leading consumers on making them buy into a bunch of garbage
    with empty promises about things that don't exist. (the
    whole he has gone on to Galilee and left before you got here
    part)

    But then I went on to the actual article and saw what it was
    about and got very disappointed. like most people I enjoy
    reading a good bit of fiction, but will not be wasting my
    time believing it to be true.


    (just a note if you feel like commenting on my comments, I
    already viewed this article and so will not be coming back to
    it. I never go back to the same article to see what new
    posts have been made, on any site. I just read the post and
    sometimes the comments, then comment if I feel like it and
    move on with my life. There is too much in life to see to
    spend most of it going back over things I have already seen
    that still remains the same.)
