What a shame! Joe Hewitt was a very skilled iPhone developer and it’s a pity to see him move back to the web because of Apple’s App Store policies.
My decision to stop iPhone development has had everything to do with Apple???s policies. I respect their right to manage their platform however they want, however I am philosophically opposed to the existence of their review process. I am very concerned that they are setting a horrible precedent for other software platforms, and soon gatekeepers will start infesting the lives of every software developer.
The web is still unrestricted and free, and so I am returning to my roots as a web developer. In the long term, I would like to be able to say that I helped to make the web the best mobile platform available, rather than being part of the transition to a world where every developer must go through a middleman to get their software in the hands of users.???
I use the really great macFUSE to mount several server directories via SSH on my work computer. One programm that makes this process really easy is Macfusion which offers a menu item and a standalone application to configure your mountpoints and mount/unmount them.
Finally! Colloquy, my IRC client of choice for Mac OS X came out as a mobile version for the iPhone. For a mere 1,59? (in the Austrian App Store) you’ll get a full featured, slick IRC client on your handheld device.
Ed had a neat modification done to his (originally) white MacBook which should make this computer quite unique.
