iPhone SDK May Be 1-3 Weeks Late
How true this is. The real problem here is that when Palm made their first splash on the scene, they actively encouraged developers of all stripes and created a cult brand. Apple is not doing the same thing -- it's the same Steveishness (a tradition John Sculley carried on) that left the Mac a gaming backwater in the mid-80s, a situation it never really recovered from despite game developers chomping at the bit to get at PowerPC hardware.
Put it this way -- I know Palm's best days are behind them, but my next MP3 player will almost certainly be a Palm Tungsten. The iPhone/iPod Touch isn't all hat and no cattle, but given how restrictive Apple is being with the platform it may as well be.
