43F Podcast: Snell & Gruber on iPhone applications

Jason Snell and John Gruber on iPhone applications

Merlin talks with MacWorld Magazine’s Jason Snell and DaringFireball.net’s John Gruber about the likely future of applications for the recently announced iPhone. Who will be allowed to play? How does it affect the ostensible competition? Will this end up feeling more like a phone with an iPod, a Mac with a phone, or something altogether different? (5:48)

I'm figuring that eventually they're going to allow 3rd party development, because 1) they made a point of saying it runs OS X, 2) because of the touchscreen, it can have any interface, for anything that could fit in your hand comfortably, and 3) what better developer community could they possibly enlist?

There'd have to be an awfully good reason not to use the programming stuff they already made, and alienate their salivating developers. Give Apple a little time; they're probably still finishing the final tweaks and parts sourcing. There might be rules for how to get in, but I'll be really surprised if there aren't ever any 3rd party applications for the iPhone.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
