iPhone SDK

Seeing this story that the iPhone SDK might be late made me remember a conversation I had with an Apple employee who I ran into at a bar in San Francisco recently.

I told him dan_erat's theory that the Apple SDK won't let you write an AIM/XMPP/Yahoo/whatever IM client, as then it'd cut into SMS revenue.

I said,
"So that means either no network access, or no backgrounding running apps."
He smiled and said,
"Well, you get network access."
Sad.
