Apple During last week's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple introduced a new iPhone model, the iPhone 3GS, which comes, among other things, with a faster processor and more RAM. Since this is a developers' conference, there were also numerous sessions on iPhone development, and the last session was about publishing on the App Store. Since every session at every WWDC is always followed by an open Q&A session, you'd figure this'd be the perfect opportunity for iPhone developers to ask about Apple's App Store policies. Well, no.

The point is: Apple hates developers. But seriously need them, so we get this weird situation.

Apple products are great, but I just can't accept their behavior of ignoring problems instead of addressing them while pretending everything is wonderful..

Well, if they weren't such bitches their marketshare wouldn't be so low compared to the much inferior Win XP and Win Vista

Who I think are the pussy whipped bitches are the developers unwilling to grow a backbone and refuse to develop for the iPhone. Nothing is stopping these developers from standing up and saying, "enough is enough, we aren't going to support a platform that does not give us control over the development and deployment of our own product".

Personally I can't work out the fixation with the iPhone; never have and never will given that I don't have a fetish for 'smart phones'. I have an el-cheap $149 Telecom WCDMA phone (a rebranded ZTE phone) which does everything I need - it confuses me, therefore, that developers ignore that they have the power in the relationship because they can with hold developing for a said platform if they wish - the problem is that they'd sooner develop and then whine than stand on some principles.
