    everyone has been going nuts about the release of the SDK being released this February, many thing that it'll replace jailbreaking also.

    i really think that apple will only release this to only a small group of companies.

    they'll give it to Nike to make an application which ties with exercising, nothing special.

    possibly 3 or 4 games. most likely ported versions of the ipod's "parachute," "music quiz," etc.

    and possibly there will be Java/Flash for the iphone/ ipod touch.


    what I'm trying to say is that the SDK coming soon is really overrated and it'll never compare to Jailbreaking (installer).

    if they were giving it only to companies then why are they bothering to keep it virus/malware free?
    it's obvious they're trying to keep it open AND secure as possible.
    now if they can just give me my damn lyrics back i'd be set.

    i think SDK will be kinda dumb because we'll probably have to like pay for the stuff through iTunes or something. i dunno. 3rd party all the way.

    SDK = Software Development Kit

    Lets people write apps for the ipod, without it being necessary to jailbreak. But apple wants to look at each app and decide themselves whether to make each one available.

    I don't think that there is any way they are ever going to release it to the general public. They didn't for the other iPods, why would they this one? It's going to be sent to a few trusted developers who will make games that will be for sale through iTunes. End of story.

    Maybe because other iPods didn't have OSX?
