As we mentioned this morning, Apple attracted some unwanted attention yesterday when it informed James Thompson, the developer behind calculator PCalc, that he'd have to remove the app's iOS 8 widget if he expected the popular app to remain on the app store. Supporters of the app rallied in favor of Thompson not long after, and in the face of such an overwhelming response, the Cupertino company called Thompson personally to announce that it had reversed its decision.

A report from TechCrunch claims that Apple hadn't anticipated that the Notification Center widgets could be used in the way Thompson was using them. The initial notice apparently claimed that calculations could be entered into the widget but the widget couldn't perform the calculations itself, which essentially nulls the point of a widget for an app like PCalc.

Originally, Thompson was given two to three weeks to redesign the $9.99 app before Apple pulled it. The notice was particularly disheartening since Thompson noted that PCalc was featured at the time in the App Store's "Great Apps for iOS 8" section, where it was singled out for being a great "Notification Center Widget."

But Thompson immediately reported the "extremely disappointing news" to his followers on Twitter, who expressed their support in droves and no doubt directed a few choice words at Apple itself. And so Thompson's app is back just a day later, and most importantly, it sets a precedent that paves the way for more calculator Notification Center widgets to come.

Will such an approach always work for developers trying to get their other widgets approved? Likely not. But it at least shows that Apple is prepared to quickly reverse its stance about key aspects of its operating systems under the right conditions.

According to a report by Variety, actor Seth Rogen will likely be playing Apple co-founder Steve "Woz" Wozniak in the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic starring Christian Bale. There's a touch of iffiness about the claim as TheWrap notes that Rogen doesn't have a deal in place, but most sources agree that Rogen is at least in talks for the role.

Rogen will reportedly get to work with Woz himself for advice on the role, which is based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography of Jobs. The screenplay itself, written by Aaron Sorkin of The Social Network fame, consists of three lengthy scenes corresponding to three major product launches from Jobs' life. Danny Boyle, best known for films like Slumdog Millionaire and 28 Days Later, will direct the film.

Rogen himself is usually best known for his comedic work in films like Superbad and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, but lately he's tackled more serious work in films like Take This Waltz to much acclaim. Sorkin's script might allow for both ends of his range. As for Woz, he left Apple way back in 1987, but media outlets still often seek his opinion on the latest developments from the Cupertino company he founded.

The followup report from TheWrap also claims that Jessica Chastain of Zero Dark Thirty fame is also in talks for the film, although the role in consideration currently isn't known. Production will reportedly begin sometime next spring.
