...we certainly intend to build on the good relationship we have with Apple right now and grow in line with their customer base. I think they are doing a really good job and have a quite unique position in the mobile phone market...


Sounds like another one about to "flee the platform" because of the horrible way you treat all your developers...

What would you say publicly about an important business partner that could put you out of business at the drop of a hat?

But maybe that's being a bit paranoid. There's almost no way to know if he's being 100% honest in his feelings about Apple.

I don't have an iphone, but If I did, I probably wouldn't buy the c64 emulator unless it had basic.

Considering that a handful of developers HAVE said pretty negative things about Apple while continuing to develop and sell apps in the store, I don't think it would be a problem at all.

I think there are some things that Google can say about Apple, that some smaller developers more reliant on the revenue stream and less of an ability to defend themselves may not be able to say.

What's the point of a C64 emulator without the basic interpreter? That *is* the language used to program the c64, except for asm off course.

C64 games.

The commercial cartridge based games were not written in basic.

As stated above, I miss the basic, more than the games ( which were fun).
