Comment on "Apple's Name Change"
by David — Jan 09
"The only two iPhones at the show were under glass, and Apple representatives said it is a "closed platform",

Yeah, I'm a bit negative about this device, obviously, looking at it from the point of view of a Mac developer. This is part of the reason why: I get the impression that this will indeed be a closed platform. If you work with Apple then yeah, you might get a certified app running on the iPhone (like an iPod game), and you'd probably be subject to ITS marketing mechanisms.

In which case, I don't see this as a "Mac" at all, any more than an iPod is a Mac.

Or I could be completely wrong, and Apple throws open the doors and anyone who can download Xcode and knows a bit of javascript can create iPhone apps.
