iPhone -- Redux

It seems the collective shine has begun to fade on the iPhone. A lot of people are having the same questions same questions I had about it. I was disappointed to see Steve Jobs say he wants to keep the iPhone closed. I guess this shouldn't come as a surprise. I've always thought that the biggest reason for Microsoft's greater success than Apple was that Microsoft was always much friendlier to developers. Even if they thought of us as pawns, they still treated us better than Jobs & Co. I was also interested in Cedric's take that MacWorld 2007 signaled Apple's waving of the white flag as a computer company. Kind of seems that way to me, too. Still, their moves have been pleasing to shareholders.
