    I was thinking with the SDK coming in Feb., that this most likely means that there are some big updates in store before then. Apple has a history of perfecting apps on the Mac that are most commonly used (iLife, iWork, iChat, etc.) so that Mac users are better off using their apps rather than 3rd party apps that are available and do the same things.

    In other words, when Apple opens up the iPhone with a SDK, you would think that they would have an IM client, cut/paste, MMS, etc., all on the phone before they give a 3rd party a shot at developing them first. It just seems to be there style. Then they would leave the more 'specialized' apps for the 3rd party vendors.

    I'm looking forward to that GPS app for GoogleMaps.

    Just my thoughts on the bigger picture of the SDK coming... Apple has app competition now.... sweet.

    If Apple decides the iTS is the only way to distribute the apps, they choose the competition...
