Apple The internet is abuzz with the news that Apple intends to break iPhones containing third party applications. Unlocked phones are also likely to be victims of the next software update. While community reaction is generally negative, one blogger suggests sending an even stronger message to Apple by boycotting Apple on October 1. If you're running the Installer application, you may want to hold off on any iPhone firmware updates.

don't get me wrong I like the iphone. but it is not a smartphone just a rather fancy featurephone. they don't want third party software, so if you want to boycot don't buy it in the first place:) if they didn't make the device with 3rd party in mind you really can't expect them to care about you. it is the same on other platforms even the open ones, if you don't stick to the rules (public api) it is your fault... over and out.
