Excellent follow-up by John Gruber.
This quote from Schiller is promising:
“Apple’s goals remain aligned with customers and developers — to create an innovative applications platform on the iPhone and iPod touch and to assist many developers in making as much great software as possible for the iPhone App Store. While we may not always be perfect in our execution of that goal, our efforts are always made with the best intentions, and if we err we intend to learn and quickly improve.”
I honestly believe that their intentions are good — I just wish we’d see more signs of that. App Store developer relations have been abysmal so far, and there’s a long way to go before I’d even consider it a remotely healthy relationship.
This is a good start.
