    as we all know steve jobs announced today that the full version of the sdk will be avaliable in june he also said ipod touch users will have to pay for the software upgrade for the sdk. So is anybody mad at apple for the fact that ipod touch users will have to pay for the software upgrade(sdk) AGAIN. i wonder how much they are going to charge for it and if the new ipod touch users have to pay for it.


    if you dont beleieve me that we have to pay go to: http://gizmodo.com/364788/iphone-20...-free-in-june-touch-users-get-to-pay-up-again

    Assuming that most devs here wont go to Apple, just wait for the updated Jailbreak. Thats what I'm planning to do anyway

    Wow, hold on here guys! It's not Apple's fault they must pocket the money due to Accounting Standards. Apple is fair, because they also charge this nominal price from their US Accounting Standards in other countries as well.

    Stupid question. I have the Touch. What exactly will I be paying for compare to what are the iPhone user are getting for free. I know they all have to pay for certain softwares/games.

    Exactly, just have to wait and see. I'm sure there will be games/softwares that both touch/iphone users will have to pay.

    I think everybody should write a letter to Steve jobs
    tell him we almost the same amount of money for the touch we shouldn't have to pay for your software upgrades
