Apple has quite literally, changed the game in the mobile market with the iPhone. But has Apple every ever recovered in ego, from their market share loss to the PC back in the beginning of the intial battles between Apple and Microsoft.
Now we see Apple basically owning the mobile market and by golly, they have no interest in letting anyone else gain anything on them. And by itself, there is nothing wrong with this. It’s good for their business.
Sadly though, there is a problem for the end user experience and to a degree, a problem for the developers. Apple has really opted to put the clamps down on what and how things can be developed for the iPhone and iPad platform. Question is, how long will this continue and when will Apple finally loosen up their grasp?
