On Apple rejecting SeaNav US

The developer of SeaNav US posted the contents of the email from Apple to Pebble forums. A verbatim copy here. Specifically, your app and app description declare support for thePebble Smartwatch. If you look at this email carefully, there is no space between “the” and “Pebble”. I strongly feel that, there is a high chance that the contents of Apple’s email has been manipulated.

Why I don’t like the 4 inch iPhone and a brief review of the EarPods

So I got my iPhone 5 today after queueing for 7 hours. This product, like any other Apple product, looks great and feels great.
