Has anyone been talking about moving to Windows 8 phones?
That said; I have a friend who runs an iPhone dev conference and he says a lot of his customers are watching Windows Phone very closely. If MS can get consumers to care; I suspect developers will follow.

The license, as I understand it; says one can do anything to the code. You can modify it; extend it, sell it, create your own version without any restrictions, release it under a different license, etc...
Did you know that most non-Apple devices use micro-USB cables? these ports are significantly smaller than the 30 pin Apple Connector and as best I can tell, significantly smaller than the Apple 19 pin connector.
And cables / power supplies are almost trivial to find. If Apple truly wanted something smaller, why didn't it go for that?
I have done some web site work for a Karaoke equipment seller in the past. They sold a bunch of "off the shelf" Stuff in addition to creating their own collections.
For their own collections, they actually hired a studio to create their own recordings. So, while they wouldn't inherently own any song copyrights, they would own the copyrights to the recording of the song.
I remember being told that this guys production company played him the original and the new recording side by side and they were indistinguishable.
All that said, I don't know if that is a consideration in this case.
