Big Brother Steve is Watching Your iPhone
Apple's got a tight rein on the iPhone App Store -- and your iPhone. "Note that this is very different from just removing an application from the App Store. In case of this black listing, Apple could presumably deauthorize applications already installed on every iPhone."
Don't say we didn't warn you, or at least let Jonathan Zittrain warn you:
Steve Jobs takes a cut, and he reserves the right to reject, prospectively or retroactively, any software he doesn't like, for any reason.
We only have hints about what those reasons will be. There was a slide he had up when he introduced the SDK in Febuary of 2008 that said what won't be avaiable in the store: porn, privacy, bandwidth hogs, and unforeseen.
That's the point where I say, Yikes.
