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.


Looking at Apple's treatment of iPhone devs, it almost seems that they're playing hard-to-get in order to create an impression of (to steal paraphrase the Simpsons) "wow, it looks like they don't even need my business!"

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


Agreed, you've summed it up nicely. There's a quip that Winston Churchill made about the US that (IMO) also applies to Apple: "They always do the right thing... after they've tried everything else."
