Legal A few days ago, technology blog Valleywag's launched its Apple Tablet Scavenger Hunt, a sort-of contest in which people with evidence of the existence of Apple's much-rumoured tablet could win large sums of money. Apple apparently wasn't amused, as the company resorted to its usual tactic whenever it doesn't like something in the press: litigation, litigation, litigation.

Well, they might start caring if the *software developers* in the tech community stop writing software for Apple products...


The thing is, developers (in general) don't care too much about the politics, if they did, there would be a lot less software on Windows, that's for sure...

If there is money to be made, then the iPhone, iTouch and iSlate will all get a swag of software written for it. When it comes to commercial software, it's the mighty $ (which can be equated to market share) that shines the way. Apple, MS and others all know this, so they can have as much negative press as they like.

The Linux world is a different place, one for the tech-hippies, but those days will end soon enough as the market share goes up...
