Default Another article that 4phun/Oxford will conveniently miss

"Apple to 100,000 iPhone developers: don’t call us, we’ll call you"

"By week’s end, almost everyone who had downloaded the SDK and offered to
pay the $99 ($299 for enterprises) to become an official iPhone or iPod
touch developer had received Apple’s polite but firm rejection letter:

Dear Registered iPhone Developer, Thank you for expressing interest in the
iPhone Developer Program. We have received your enrollment request. As this
time, the iPhone Developer Program is available to a limited number of
developers and we plan to expand during the beta period. We will contact
you again regarding your enrollment status at the appropriate time. Thank
you for applying.

What stings for the developers who got what reads like a pink slip is that
they know Apple has already let its favorite partners under the tent. In
addition to the companies that demoed at the March 6 event (EA, Salesforce,
AOL, Epocrates, Sega) Apple quoted a quite a few more the press release
(Intuit, Namco, Netsuite, PopCap, Rocket Mobile, Six Apart and THQ
Wireless)."
