Well, NOW what is everyone going to complain about?!

Apple says an iPhone SDK coming in February.

Steve Jobs sez iPhone (and iPod touch) SDK is coming in February.

It will take until February to release an SDK because we're trying to do two diametrically opposed things at once--provide an advanced and open platform to developers while at the same time protect iPhone users from viruses, malware, privacy attacks, etc.

Jobs says Apple is working on digital signature technology such as Nokia uses to trace applications to known developers. The Macalope is not a security expert (he doesn't even play one on TV, although he has had several walk-on parts in Life is Wild), but he's glad to see Apple being careful about this.
