is this before or after you edit the Wikipedia entry?
Are you muddling your understanding of the difference between developers for a platform and users of that platform?As for muddled understanding I wish to clarify this point Stevie:
are you stating that developers who develop for iOS are locked into developing only for that platform?
If so, by your definition of "lock in", what do you see as the substantial switching costs for developing for an alternative mobile OS?
I find this argument rather inane: until we become infinitely powerful beings, we're all limited by whatever choices we make.
By your argument my house must be a locked down prison as there are substantial switching costs should I choose to move to a different location.
The issue is whether Apple prevents developers from developing for other platforms not whether they have the means to do so.

The UK Apple Store (http://store.apple.com/uk) has been updated to offer the iPhone 4. However only the black one is available for pre-order as the site states:On a positive note the iPhones on offer are now unlocked - they can be used with a Micro SIM from any 3G/GSM carrier.

That's ironic as usernames and passwords need to be correctly spelt for Kerberos to work.
I hope you were (but fear you weren't) being sarcastic.
I wouldn't want you advising or providing services for my business as you're not doing what's in its best interest. You should at least inform your clients about the security benefits of upgrading from IE6.
There's an opinion expressed before that IT departments and IT technicians tend to do what's in their best interest, i.e. favour tech solutions they understand or have qualifications for rather than what's in...
I enjoyed your satirical homage to the Appleinsider trolls but Documents to Go is one of several apps that do indeed allow you to create and edit Excel documents on an iPhone.
Undoubtedly the trolls will complain that Apple doesn't bundle this feature into the iPhone OS.
I'm surprised you thought I was complaining.At the time of purchase, October 2008, there was no Apple 13" laptop with Firewire and the then new NVidia GeForce 9400M graphics. There was a choice between:
- the old plastic Macbook with Firewire but with Intel X3100 graphics and no backlit keyboard
- the brand new Aluminium Macbook 13" with faster processor, Nvidia graphics but no Firewire
- the new 15" Aluminium Macbook Pro with Firewire but larger size and weight.
