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.

Their relations to the developers are incredibly good. MSDN Premium rocks. And I am a FOSS advocate and a Microsoft Corp. hater.


That's one thing I'll (grudgingly) give to Microsoft too: they do put a lot of effort into accommodating the people who develop software for their platform(s).

Although, being Microsoft, they go about it in a fairly cynical way - often (IMO) putting the convenience of developers ahead of the convenience of end-users. After all: if you bend over backwards to keep devs happy, they will write software for your OS - and end-users will then use your OS in order to have access that software (even if many end-users find the OS itself to be unbearable).
