This can only be a good thing. Surely, standards will be enforced to ensure integration.

I wouldn't want a phone crashing on me every five minutes like a computer has the potential to. Fortunately, the iPhone is built upon OS X and so it should be pretty rock solid.

Steve has made the right choice. If there is any doubt about security and stability, I personally would happily sacrifice 3rd party apps for another year or two to make sure my phone, which first and foremost it still is, would work when needed.

This is an interesting article in that it quotes Jobs' feeling about needing security over software expandability, and then goes on to interview John Casanata and Austin Sarner.

Two people who, in light of their workings with MacHeist, etc, and individual workings encompass a sort of "do it your own way" thought to Macintosh design (and have egos to match). Let's take a look at three examples of how their interfaces haven't followed standards: CookBook, Disco, iClip. This at a time when too many Macintosh users are begging Apple for unified interfaces.

Now let's imagine what their friends at Unsanity can come up with to bypass the iPhone's standards via memory injection. And they think Atmosphere is an apt application for the iPhone? Yeah, I suppose, if you want a superfluous effect there just to drain battery life. AppZapper? Really? I'm imagining Apple will use iTunes to manage application (un)installation in which case AppZapper would be more useless than its OS X incarnation. This is not a consumer desktop computer.

I always felt Jobs' initial interview with Pogue was a warning shot across the bow of people like those interviewed for this article. It should be interesting to see what Apple comes up with.

So the iPhone is dangerous, but Windows Mobile isn't?

Then don't download any apps. That's easy.

But the rest of us who want to use the gizmo's full potential for ourselves, shouldn't be held back because of other people's worries.

It's humorous that millions of Windows Mobile phones seem to go along just fine without "taking down the network", yet Jobs publicly fears his iPhone could.

Yeah. Weak.

Funny though, people would download lots of apps, the iPhone would hang, and droves of blogs would emerge about how unreliable the device is. Windows Mobile Phones are actually pre-existent cell phones, made by companies which specialize in cell phones, running Windows software. Seems Apple chose to avoid unnecessary complaints such as, "This phone sucks - freezes up all the time," at least, until the phone has been out in the wilderness for a few months.
