Rafael:  Thank you very much, I was having a huge headache to solve the very same problem!

Ray:  Having the same problem. Very frustrating. Luckily, for some reason my released version worked on the iPad itself, but now I can't get it to run in the simulator. Getting no such table, which I'm guessing is an initialization error. Will continue to investigate.

Jeremy:  FYI, I've just tried it with the SQLite 3.7.0 preview and the same problem occurs.
Also, I'm not using any extra third-party libraries with my SQLite, so the problem isn't your Unicode extension.

Jeremy:  I'm having the same problem with compiling SQLite against iOS 4 for the iPad simulator, but in my case it works fine running on an actual iPad (also works in the iPhone simulator and on an iPod Touch).
Same problem with, 3.6.23, and at least back to 3.6.21. Compiling against iOS 3.2 makes it work, though that's not really an option for iPhone (as opposed to iPad) apps.
I have no idea what to do about it or how big a problem it really is...

Pascal:  The problem seems to have deep roots, however there is a solution, see the updated post. :)

Official: iPhone comes to Switzerland through Swisscom

A year later than everyone expected it's now official - Swisscom will launch the iPhone in Switzerland later this year.

This fits very well to the current rumors of a new iPhone being unveiled at the WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference), to be held from June 9th to June 13th in San Francisco, California.

A Copyright Cop for every Zune

Oh well, that's almost hilarious. You might remember that last summer, NBC pulled its TV shows from the iTunes store after Apple denied them the rights of more flexible prices, bundling content and building harsher DRM into the iPods. Basically, NBC wanted Apple to become more evil and controlling its iTunes users further. It wanted iTunes to bundle popular shows with less popular shows so those would sell more. There's no other point behind bundling, is it?

Apple denied this (hey, there's still good in them!) and consecutively NBC pulled the shows from the iTunes store.

Since yesterday, those NBC shows are available from the Zune store (the Zune is Microsofts iPod counterpart). And guess what - with the upcoming software update to the Zune, there will be a Copyright Cop in every Zune. Mr. Perrette, NBCs president of digital distribution, said that they create “filtering technology that allows for playback of legitimately purchased content versus non-legitimately purchased content.” Great, now that is great! Thank you, Microsoft, thank you, NBC. For the sake of having those shows available and making money out of them, you're ready to fuck your customers once again. Great!

iPhone SDK install fails

Wednesday, May 7th 2008 - 10:57, 1 update Thursday, May 29th 2008 - 11:14
I am really wondering: Today I installed the 5th beta (login required) of the iPhone SDK, so this was the fifth time I installed a beta of this SDK. And for the fifth time, I received the following error:

"The following install step failed: run preupgrade script for CHUD. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance."

I have no problem running the SDK, everything seems to run fine, but I wonder why googling for this error returns zero results. Not even a suggestion to search for something similiar, just zero results.

Does nobody else have this problem? Or am I violating some non-disclosure-agreement by posting this?

Edit: I filed a bug report, in case anyone wants to take a look at it, Bug ID is 5916392

Update: As of iPhone SDK beta 6 this issue seems to have been fixed, at least for me. Good.
