The original doom (and I don't know how many of the others) were written on NeXT using objective C. That is still the native language on the iphone and it's possible that this engine is written in objective C and would naturally port to the iphone that way. Or perhaps Carmack saw this as an opportunity to do some objective C work if he hasn't in a long time.

Only when I buy a game on steam I won't want to play it through my home theater, or on my iPhone, or in the car.
As long as they don't act upon this information I don't see any issue with it. I bet most run-of-the-mill users don't know they have the infection and could act upon it if they knew.

In the spring I wanted to get my landline which was an MCI account moved over to FairPoint as my bill had gotten out of control due to all of the line-leasing fees, etc. It took them 3 months. THREE MONTHS to do what amounted to an accounting change. Even then I had periods where they screwed it up so bad that my phone was shut off for 3 days, had no long distance, and had no caller-ID etc. It's like watching a power plant run by a bunch of monkeys.
The PUC people that got bribed into OKing this deal should be sent away.
Comparing this with TV is the short-bus way of looking at it. TV you can only get from Cable (usually only one player in town), Satellite, or OTA (which isn't eveywhere either). I don't know of many places that you can't get at least 10 radio statios + internet.
It's a "new" format and it has to compete with other audio broadcast formats out there. Look at the bigger picture.
