Plea from a developer : Apple, Please Open up the iPod API!
Scroll down to the comments area and see the discussion under "What would you like to see on your iPod?". It's a glimpse into the fascinating collection of ideas and possibilities for unleashing the creative potential of thousands of developers. Any other tech company would give its arm, leg and the CEO's stock options for even a tenth of such tremendous potential for entrenching their platform. Investing in complementors to create positive network externalities does not get any better, cheaper and easier than this.
Steve, don't blow it, PLEASE. Listen
to the market for once, willya? We want you to win. Don't snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this time around, for cryin' out loud!
