Wilson's taking a three-day weekend to recuperate from last week's Apple madness, so Natali takes his place to kick off this week of Apple-free episodes...not. Just when you thought Apple would let someone else have the news spotlight, out comes Stop the Madness Steve Jobs, an open letter written by developer Jack Freeman about Apple recently changing the requirements in the iPhone OS terms of service, limiting the programming languages developers can use to create applications.
According to the letter, "these new terms will shut down many current developers, and disallow many popular game engines and other "middlewares." The article also pleads with Jobs to filter the current app store based on quality of the end product instead of the programming methods. There's no petition to sign, but Jack encourages all supportive developers to comment on the letter and forward it to friends!
The most controversial app lets you detect a woman's bra size with a simple swipe of the handset. The video demo posted shows a couple guys walking into a "random" bar and asking the bartender's permission to "scan" her female parts with the Droid, although we're pretty sure this is old technology--version 1.0 didn't even need a phone; it was just called using your eyes.
Finally, we have some bad news for fans of "Arrested Development"--the much-discussed movie adaptation might actually be dead in the water, or at least that's what star David Cross recently said to a reporter, claiming too much time has passed since the series finale. It's not an official death sentence, so we'll just have to assume that the movie would've been a crappy, stretched-out version of the series anyway. Hopefully.
