Apple The situation regarding Apple's App Store for the iPhone is getting weirder by the day. Several applications have been rejected from the App Store based on seemingly dubious claims such as duplication of functionality (even though they didn't duplicate anything), or alikeness to default applications. Two such cases made headline news over the past few days; Podcaster and MailWrangler. The developers of these applications openly protested against these rejections, and apparently, Apple doesn't really like that. Apple now reiterates that rejections fall under the NDA, prohibiting developers from speaking up about rejections.

What company/person would knowingly make a gamble and invest money and time in the iPhone platform not knowing whether or not Apple will allow them to sell their products. Outside of game developers, this will almost certainly kill off lots of 3rd party productivity applications. Hopefully somebody can make a real competitor to the iPhone (sorry, but the first android phone kind of sucks).
