Why not wait until the court decides? Any discussion here is moot, and just an opportunity to flap one's gums. It won't make one bit of difference what we opine.

I think it will be detrimental to Apple's brand if they are forced to do that, and a support nightmare. People will blame Apple for third party app store problems.

If I wanted more flexibility and a crappy user experience I would use Andriod.

That is a great article, thank you for that.

I hadn't paid too much attention as there were so many 'explanations' that were the result of their author's bias, that my brain went numb trying to sort fact from opinion.

It's also good to hear from somebody who actually has some cred to offer, so I don't mind a little flex.
