All of this stuff scares the hell out of me:
- Software patents, and their use as a financial weapon.
- The walled garden of the various App Stores, with mysterious and ever-changing rules governing admittance, and the constant threat of capricious rejection.
- The consequent relative invisibility of non-App Store software.
- The incredibly crowded market, with imitations and duplicates of popular titles springing up overnight.
I don’t want to sound too negative. But a tweet from Tim O’Reilly got me reading a chain of posts.
