[A friend of mine], you can dismiss this project if you wish, but I believe this is only possible because of the closed nature of Apple’s offering. Apple is ahead right now because they have released a fabü iPhone OS SDK. I have no doubt others will try to catch up. But the point is that right now, today, you can build this stuff and release it on the iPhone (iPad on April 3).
If enough people complain and if enough developers release their code Open Source, Apple will have no option but to offer something similar to Android’s Markeplace where folks can add non-Apple-Approved native apps to their devices. I crave the ability to use the frameworks Apple has created for the iPhone OS to create Open Source apps that run natively on the iPhone/iPad. That would be my dream. That is what I am looking for. That is what I am working for.
I believe it is coming.
You can hang around and wait for it. Or you can join developers like YVOD and help forge the path.
