Hey guys, are there any coders out there that know the limits of the iphone? would an sdk kit open new doors to more powerfull programs? How much could coders achive graphics wise with the coding that we are using now? Anyone that could answer these questions would help me understand this would be awesome.
Also thanks to all the coders out there that are making all the sweet apps for the iphone. They are getting better every day.

I kinda want to know what is the reason for the applications out right now not being able to use sound without disableing the thing in the terminal. like the nes emulator. What is the main reason for this?

until someone can give you a more technical answer I can give you a simple one....
I believe a program on your phone called mediaserverd is in charge of all the sounds that come out of your phone (when it is enabled). This is important for like recieving a call in the middle of listening to your iPod (i think). The problem is this mediaserverd is a complete hog, and unless channelled through mediaserverd no sounds are allowed to play through the phone. as a quick fix to this, someone figured out how to simply disable mediaserverd to allow a direct feed to the speakers (or something?) but this also disables the rest of the sounds on your phone that would normally be channeled through mediaserverd (system sounds, ringtone, iPod)
anyway, this mostly speculation, and a really simplified explanation, but i hope it helps (and is correct!)

These things take time, new territory is being explored. The programmers involved have made fantastic progress in the short time they've been working with this. Until they can figure out a way to properly work with the sound mixer process, things are going to be a bit of a kludge.

the toolchain isn't fully developed either . . .
