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.

Eh, you do realise that that link actually solidifies my point, right? Because, uhm, despite the review process, the application GOT THROUGH IT. It was only removed AFTERWARDS. When the damage had been done.

Hahaha! ep, actually noticed it.

Still, do not go overboard. The damage had been done to some. No Store, no ability to pull it.
