More so than just signing a petition, I think everyone here should write Apple a very well worded letter and paste it into the box at:
I have sent them a few letters there.
Good example of justification for not locking down the iPhone:
I'm currently studying Tocatta in D in Piano, and a lot of the rhythm is very difficult to read as written. My teacher has went through it with me over and over but I always forget it. So this time I fired up VNotes and recorded her going through it with me.
Now we all know there are ppl out there who could care less about the things that really make the iPhone awesome.. Some people might NEED that feature, and may end up getting a Blackberry or something else that has the feature they need.
By not locking the iPhone down, or even opening it up further, they insure that THERE IS NO FEATURE that the iPhone cannot potentially have.
I think e-mails with coherent reasoning speaks louder than a petition. Think the $200 rebate, the $100 credit. probably due to tons of ppl complaining.
Tons of people complained about the Wii component cables before the Wii came out. As a result Nintendo sent out an email saying they could order them through the website and receive them in time for the Wii release.

The letter is a great idea. It needs some revising. It must be stressed to Apple why it is in THEIR best interest to not intentionally break 3rd party. I know there is a comment on the cool factor and sales. This needs to be brought to the forefront. Say something to the effect of "having 3rd party applications widely available helps DRIVE sales of the iPhone to customers who would otherwise never have bought one for this limitation alone."
We do know that they won't spend 1 minute of man power to ensure compatability between their firmware and our hacks, so we need to tackle this from more of a financial standpoint IMHO. I'd also make the letter a lot shorter so that they may even actually read it in its entirety. This has got to look like a busines letter would look. The more professional it is presented, the better it will be received. I'd also stress to anyone signing they use a real name (first and last) and not some screen name, it just looks phony if you don't. Anyone can put a list of names on something and hand it to a company. IMHO again. It might have more impact if the email addresses were also provided to Apple.
I'm signing it anyway. This is no different than Apple TV or Newton hacking.
