    This is a great article! The only problem is in point one, companies no longer need to set aside massive budgets for mobile application development, the emergence and evolution of mobile development platforms take the time needed and cost out of mobile app development by eliminating the need for Objective-C or Java knowledge. Platforms like Titanium from Appcelerator achieve this.

    Native Apps for iPhone and Android, no Objective-C or Java, use you web skills, Killer apps in a fraction of the time, one awesome platform, enough said….

    Never mind PCs – the original “cloud” was mainframes and the green screen! What goes around comes around!

    Some of the comments on this article are now obsolete, Apple is a leader in innovation, it’s not about “Absolute Power”, it’s about revolution. Apple IMO has brought an revolution in the Mobile Market, “We all are going mobile”. People have more choices today for Development. iOS vs. Android. vs. BlackBerry ( the competition is fuming ).
