Apple At the D11 conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook once again took the stage to be interviewed by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. While most of the interview can be replicated by picking and reading 10 random Apple fanblog stories - there were still a number of very interesting things that warrant some closer scrutiny.

I don't know about other people but when I think of "hardware support" I think of Hardware directly connected to the device. If you have the financial backing and patience, Apple will let you connect almost anything to them. They just get a royalty payment.

So if you have some new hardware that you've developed and want to sell that works on a wide swath of devices without question, Apple is the way to go.

Bluetooth seems more like a software issue (lack of full bluetooth support for devices) than a hardware support issue ( iphone/ipads have Bluetooth communication capabilities).

It is. Specifically, iOS doesn't implement Bluetooth serial for GPS, but has its own protocol.
