This week's hottest iPhone stories: developers, applications, scams, Flash, iTunes, delays, European threat, Greenpeace - Tech Digest
Just a week after we discovered the iPhone's US launch date, Steve Jobs delivered his keynote address at Apple's World Wide Developers' Conference. Developers who had been eagerly waiting to see what kind of opportunities they'd get to put their applications on the iPhone found out: there's no Software Development Kit - just use Safari and Web 2.0 technologies. Unsurprisingly, that annoyed some people, but not everyone. It certainly hasn't stopped some iPhone applications appearing two weeks before the iPhone does. Whether they're useful though... It must be a trick or a scam, surely? Pure Mobile (who also have a presence in the UK) has been offering an unlocked iPhone - though there's precious little other detail. Quite how they're going to get hold of one, unlock it, and offer it to punters is rather bemusing. Maybe they need a call from the Better Business Bureau?
