What makes you think the iphone's frontend will be "nice"? It really seems to me that its going to requrie juggling of the highest order just to perform simple task.

I'm waiting to see how it pans out, but the irrational exuberance surrounding the iphone is probably leading to one of the biggest tech let-downs of the year.

Outside of the 'must-have' cache it has in some circles, I just dont see it hitting like the ipod. There are a dozen cell manufacturers that can eat Apple's lunch overnight -- trying to bring emotion based branding to the technology market isnt the recipe for long term technology-industry success.

Apple && OSX are Lame Ducks

MS Ownes chunk of apple, to A) keep them alive && B) make them play nice

MS keeps them playing off MS's homecourt and in the margins (publishers, technology-as-art-kooks etc)..as long as they intend to keep their revenue from hardware and not the MS-unfriendly OS arena, MS will leave them alone - they have an non-competitive arrangment of some kind (maybe informally, but effective)

Most public domain software is free, at least at first glance.
