Sorry, figured this was part of the whole "no flash on the iPhone" saga. I just can't be sure what my opinion is about preventing developers using third party tools... On the surface it's not right, but when talking in terms of long term control and stability I'd have to support the descision. I'm not in the tech industry but I am in an aggressively competitive industry, and I massively value control at every level to acheive the standard I am seeking for my company. As Apple grow and become more dominant a lot of people are going to hate them for some of the descisions they are going to have to make. I've been using macs for the last 15 years and I am in a creative industry, I do not like much of what I am seeing from apple over the last couple of years, but I understand why they making some of their choices. I'll continue to support apple until the drop in attitude impacts us negatively, looks like developers might be the first to go.
