Apple: "we plan to have an iPhone SDK in developers' hands in February"  —  That's right folks.  You read it correctly.  Cats & dogs are living together, and in other news Steve Jobs has, via Apple's 'Hot News' page, announced that Apple will, FINALLY, support third-party development of native applications for the iPhone.

Chris Messina / FactoryCity:
Did the web fail the iPhone?  —  Ian might be right, but not because of Steve's announcement today about opening up the iPhone.  —  Indeed, my reaction so far has been one of quasi-resignation and disappointment.  —  A voice inside me whimpers, "Don't give up on the web, Steve!  Not yet!"

Paul Miller / Engadget:
Apple planning iPhone SDK for February!  —  Well, would you look at that.  Apple apparently wants third party applications on the iPhone and iPod touch just like every other sane individual on the planet.  The company just announced on its Hot News feed (and we'd say this certainly qualifies as such) …

Nokia's N810 makes first appearance, drops jaws  —  We're still waiting for the press release, but that's Nokia N810 Internet Tablet in the fo' realz.  Yeah, sexy is an understatement.  We peeped this model in a spyshot back in July and appears to be the same lovely recently revealed by the FCC.

Google, Apple and the future of personal computing  —  I confess: My last post, about the Zonbu, was frivolous.  The Zonbu will be lucky to be a footnote in the history of 21st century computing.  Yes, it has the right model, more or less.  What it doesn't have is the muscle.
