It's still very hard for me to see how there will be any antitrust action here so long as their are competing smartphone platforms out there. If Apple has 80% of the market then this would be illegal, but they don't, so it's not.
The fact that bad apps can be made with any tool is irrelevant. The question is, when all else is equal (ability of the developer, originality of the idea, financial resources, etc), will apps made with Apple's own tools be better than apps made with cross-platform tools that do not take advantage of iPhone-specific features?

Maybe Steve will announce that he's going to start blogging. All these e-mails that he's been sending out suggest that he's feeling more social.
I hope that's true -- it's so rare to see Jobs in anything other than completely staged and scripted events. I'm sure he'll get mostly softball questions, but it should still be interesting.
That's an awfully confident statement. How do you know that Apple didn't file a complaint? No way the police are just sitting around reading tech gossip sites looking for possible criminal violations. Somebody had to file a complaint.
