Apple The backlash is starting to show. The most recent change in Apple's iPhone developer agreement isn't going down well. The change is clearly aimed at increasing lock-in, and seems to have little to nothing to do with anything else. While individual developers are hit hard, Adobe as a whole has been hit pretty hard too, giving rise to sentiments on the web that Adobe should abandon Mac development. I have the sneaking suspicion this is exactly what Apple is aiming for.

As much as I'd love it if Adobe had the balls to drop all support of OSX (how good would the blood bath be!) it's not going to happen. There's way too much revenue in the Mac as a platform for Adobe.

Agreed with others that this move is about platform lock-in - pure and simple. Adobe CS5 is just one of the impacted alternative iphone app platforms.

Apple wants exclusive apps.
