From the Archive: ‘iPhone SDK, iPhone SDK! Wherefore Art Thou iPhone SDK?’

Me, back on June 1:

Long-term, within the next two years, if not far sooner, I feel certain there will be various ways for developers to write iPhone software. […] Downplaying the prospects for third-party app development in the meantime is a way of under-promising and over-delivering. By setting initial expectations that there might never be third-party software for iPhone, any future support for third-party apps will be treated as good news.

Pretty prescient, if I do say so.

Of course, I got a slew of messages from smart DF readers that my use of “wherefore” in the title was utterly wrong. (“Wherefore” means “why”, not “where”.)
