The Other Shoe

Nitrozac paintings.jpgFrom Apple - Hot News, his Stevieness says...

Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers’ hands in February. ... It will take until February to release an SDK because we’re trying to do two diametrically opposed things at once—provide an advanced and open platform to developers while at the same time protect iPhone users from viruses, malware, privacy attacks, etc. This is no easy task. ... P.S.: The SDK will also allow developers to create applications for iPod touch.

(Emphasis mine.) Hallelujah!
