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.

The point is that the barrier for entry is being kept artificially high to avoid an explosion of crap apps, not to avoid the idea of crap apps altogether. It's a very interesting point!

Exactly. In total agreement. That's basically the point I wanted to make put more concisely. It's nothing to do with the conjecture that forms the main argument of the related article about Apple releasing a Photoshop competitor and wanting Adobe to leave the Mac platform.
