    Yes, Simon, but by including apps in iPhone 3.0 that compete with apps that developers rely on for income, Apple may be hurting its own independent developers. The new Voice Memo feature will compete with more than a handful of apps now in the App Store. How will Apple reconcile this?

    This is how things go, and it’s natural. You can’t tell Apple not to put features in just because a competitor already had those. Think about Mac apps: iTunes, Safari, Spaces, etc already had a commercial equivalent when Apple released them. In the long term, it’s better for the end user.

    This is what a capitalistic country is all about. Find gaps, fill them and monetize it. As far as I can tell, it would be a huge error on Apple’s side if 2.0 is indeed the last update.

    Where did you hear the iPhone 2.0 update would be the last one, Aly?

    The Apple press release says, “Apple plans to release the final iPhone 2.0 software … by the end of June,” but I took that to mean the final version of that particular software, since it is in beta right now.
