A couple of PC Magazine folks met with Apple marketing honcho Greg Joswiak yesterday to talk about the new iPods, and thrillingly, he had some answers to interesting questions.[…] Thanks to geargirl for providing this nice story on Digg.
What other users say about this:
wageslaven: Apple says “if the updates happen to break native apps or your native apps turn your iPhone into a rutabaga, don’t go crying to Apple, ’cause it ain’t their problem. ”
They dont “support” this either, they’re just smart enough to use the right language to say “mod at your own risk”. When they update the software, and it bricks your device, they’ll not be responsible.
Mathewh: ya, this is really great news. i think they want to see what the community will do with it. speaking of which, what ever happend to the microsoft origami thing?
andy2na: Hopefully this confirmation will urge authors, of already great programs, to port them to the iphone or touch. Adium PLEASE! 😀
Lutz: This is great news, while the third part native software on the iPhone has grown, I have been a bit worried Apple will make it troublesome for the developers. Since Apple doesn’t care, the iPhone/Touch software archives will probably grow very big very fast! 🙂
