    This will definitely get apples attention, but will not ruin apple by any means.

    I think they may be the reason behind why Meebo has not released a promised app that we have all been waiting for since the 3.0 release.

    Also, even if he hands the project off to someone else it's not like his career is done. He will most definitely find something better to work on, and he has great skills that are desired by many platforms other than the apple app store. I think that he will end up going to the droid, and this will take a huge chunk of iPhone users away after they see what open development is capable of.

    It's amazing how many GREAT applications are out there just waiting to get approved by apple, and they will never see the light of day in the app store because of apples horrific "terms of use".

    I think that these developers have considered developing for cydia, but if you think about it, which apple cracking down so much on jailbreaking, how long will cydia be around for? I think that this is keeping great developers from coming to cydia in the first place, and we will end up seeing their fantastic work on the droid or some other platform.

    I think we are a long way from seeing Apple take the shackles off for developers, but I think this is a great start and I hope that other big developers leave because of this reason as well and we can see some progress.

    It's so funny to see all these people that love their Apple iPhone, but HATE Apple. It's such a great device with HUGE potential, but we are never going to see this because of Apple itself holding it's own device back.

    Apple is all about innovation within their company, but when outside developers think of new innovations, they restrict them and tell them they can't do that. Apple is contradicting their own values and belief.

    This is simply a ********. I did not understand why did the man had problem's with Apple's polices. Apple is completely right on their way.

    Apple is completely right? Why should ghe waste his time trying to jump through hoops to get through Apple's approval?
    There are better things he can be spending hois time on and it is a sad loss for iPhone users.
    Apple can do what they like with their store but it doesn't mean developers have top develop for it.
    The apps are one of the things that make the iPhone great but if they continue to lose developers then another platform will accept them.
    It's Apple's choice but they shouldn't forget that users have choices too. At the moment they are still the best but for how long?
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    I wish you could sync your FB contacts with the iPhone's. With Apple's approval process, that won't happen.
