Apple's lock on the iPhone app market is bad for consumers, bad for developers, and bad for IT. It's time to change the rules.
Suppose you booted up your computer one morning and found that none of your applications worked because you didn't buy them from the Dell app store. Or maybe you tried to start your car and found that the ignition was locked because you didn't buy your new starter from the Toyota parts store. You'd be mad as hell, of course.
