Submission + - Jobs: No third party apps for iPhone

walt-sjc writes: In a New York Times article Steve Jobs says: "I don't want people to think of this as a computer," "These are devices that need to work, and you can't do that if you load any software on them." Quick — someone tell Palm, Motorola, and Samsung why their phones don't work!! But seriously, that seems like a major slap in the face to third party software developers, basically saying that they can't write reliable software. It also seems to decrease the utility / value of the most expensive smartphone (soon to be) on the market. Or does it matter?

The number of arguments is unimportant unless some of them are correct. -- Ralph Hartley
