Editorial The fact that the iPhone is a locked-down device, and that you don't really own it so much as rent it from Apple is well-known by now. The supposed reason for this lock-down is to ensure the device's stability and security - in fact, this has already become conventional wisdom. However, where is the proof that supports this statement? Is there any real-world evidence that suggests this model is better?

By the way, Apple does check for bad practices in apps. You wanted proof, there http://gizmodo.com/5028459/aurora-feint-iphone-app-delisted-for-lou...

If you do want to have the liberty to take risks, then I am with you. But that is another different topic.
