So...Apple...

    ...wants me to pay them $10...so I can have access to their store to buy apps?

    Am I missing something?

    I might buy a map app or games something for my iPod Touch...but I'm not going to pay $10 so that I can have access to the store.

    Lame!

    Yeah, it is pretty lame (they use Sarbanes Oxley as their excuse, even though no one else does the same thing), but the free apps available (Remote, Pandora, NetNewsWire, MochaVNC, BoxOffice (which, coincidentally, is made by a guy on the C# team at Microsoft), etc.) easily make the update worth the $10.  There are also a few new features built-in:  Exchange support being the obvious one, but the calculator's much improved (adds a scientific mode, and the buttons finally give some feedback when you press them), and they've added support for multiple calendars in the Calendar app.

    I'm siding w/ dovella on this one.

    It is fact that Apple targets the boutique niche. You do pay more so you can be snobby.

    Apple charges for the firmware update for older iPhones/iPods. It brings a few other improvements, but you need to install it to have access to the App store. 

    Now Apple says there is some accounting/legal reason why they are 'forced' to charge for the firmware upgrade, but I have to say, I haven't seen any other company directors being locked up for not charging for firmware ...

    Ah well, it's their way of doing business. And they are being succesfull for it, so if it works for Apple and their customers I am not about to complain.

    If it was me though, I would eject my iPhone from my car moving at 120kph. If you have a bug fixed or better version of your firmware availible, I cant imagine you dont want to share that with all your install base. But hey, that's just me Smiley
