Apple "Continued issues with the App Store approval process are prompting developers to shun the platform entirely. Though there are tens of thousands of other developers pumping out over 100000 iPhone apps, will continued migration away from iPhone development result in less quality software for the platform? Worse yet, will users even care?"

Mr Hewitt pretty much left because he got his knuckles wrapped for using private API elements. This isn't being reported anywhere, but it is most def in his Three20 library, and therefore the Facebook App. A fe developers using his library recently got the same treatment by Apple, and I believe this will be what sparked his "leaving".
