I have had this conversation many times

Mike explains it well. Apple has figured out how to continuously expand their income while avoiding true monopoly status. As this situation has unfolded it has been interesting to read the prognostication about the possible investigation into Apples practices. There are those who would like for it to end up forcing Apple to allow Flash, but it turns out that it is probably about Apples upcoming iAd program. My favorite comment under this article is by SubGenius, it sums the article well.

SubGenius says:
I don’t understand why people have such a problem with the iPhone OS.
Apple has created a simple dichotomy that keeps things really simple(which is a good thing).
1) Create a native app and play by their rules.
2) Create a web app – anything goes
3) Take your ball and go home

Apple once again makes “pundit” synonymous with “wrong”

The key stat is a profit increase of 90% with only a 50% rise in income. Normally these two are at least closer if not reversed.

This is the best explanation i have found to explain why Apple’s solution is best

This is what Apple does best, take someone elses idea and make it better. Ok, so I know some geeks who are willing to trade battery life for more control. But the average person doesn’t care. They just want it to work all day and not crash.

An Apple Family Loss

Apple fans lose a great influence and great friend. My own experience is limited to getting to talk to him when I ran conference calls at my old job. Good man, really knew his business.

iPhone 3GS is impressive

The camera on the new 3GS is impressive. It looks like the need for a point-n-shoot is waning.

Finally watched the iPhone 3.0 event video.

I agree with Andy Ihnatko, this is not just Apple giving us features (some we should already have had), but Apples play to make the iPhone OS the future of computing. If Microsoft isn’t scared they should be. If copy/paste works copying addresses from Safari, this will become the premier portable blog editing platform. I won’t need my laptop anymore. Just a big external battery for my iPhone.

“The iPhone is the place to be”

Quote of the Day “That means 10 million iPhone users are outselling the entire U.S. market of 250 million mobile devices.”  Wow!  This is the worlds next great computing platform.  Maybe next isn’t the best word.  I say this because it is here now.

HSBC Could make largest iPhone order to date

3 years ago, there wasn’t a major corporation that would have considered this massive of a deployment of Apple products.  The iPhone has definitely changed the game.

iPhone, this ain’t your Momma’s Phone!*

Maybe Nintendo and Sony should be worried.
