Much Ado About Very Little

I see that there's a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth about the requirements Apple has announced for apps that come from the App store. Unless they start requiring that apps use the App store, this actually puts in place an interesting two tier system:

  • A "safe" app store where Apple vets things
  • A "you're on your own" normal eco-system

I think we need to see how Apple lets this play out before anyone panics. I also think there's a fairly large market for people who want to treat their computer like an appliance that doesn't need ongoing maintenance....
