  • Apple Shafts iPhone Developer

    This is why I do not own any Apple gear. Without warning Apple has pulled their VoiceCentral iPhone application from the application store. This after it has been on sale for four months without any apparent issues. Read the whole story on their blog. I realize that Apple has every ...
