    Really? Everything? Cause I actually laughed out loud at this little bit:


    "There are more games and entertainment titles available for iPhone, iPod and iPad than for any other platform in the world."


    Uh huh. Yeah... I'm buying that.

    I assume Jobs was referring to things like games consoles and portables, because it's otherwise true: for games to be published on the Xbox, PS3, or Wii they need to go through full approval of Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo respectively, tack on high production values necessary to justify the code of the SDK license and it's easy to see why the substantially lower barrier for entry on the Cocoa Touch platform has brought us tens of thousands of entertainment programs.


    Less compared to Flash, but that's not a hardware platform. Big difference in Steve's eyes.


    oh, and don't forget his RDF.
