Indeed we are getting some interesting future-foot-in-mouth quotables. We'll see whose they are in the end, and whether the owners own up.
Slight mod to the above: ^Apologetics^The Right Reverends of PC-PCness.
What really baffles me is how one can perceive as some vast, broad, deeply-religious apologia about a *company* anything that is even remotely objective or less than critical about an *object* and its *design decisions.* Particularly when the entire explication is interleaved with frank criticism and trepidation. "Jobs Derangement Syndrome" apparently.
Yeah, the new license sucks. OTOH, for folks trying to make a buck on the app they made in their spare time, perhaps the quid pro quo of the channel and all that implies --- assuming they can run the approval gauntlet --- more than makes up for it. Certainly seems to be droves of devs who have made that calculation on their own.
What are we up to, now, sales-wise, on this evil hammer of a thing? Is it yet the fastest-selling new device ever? When do we think it will hit that mark?
