  • Paul Graham on the misadventure that is the iPhone App store. Interestingly he ties the frustration of app developers, to the way Apple's "approval process" breaks the release-early-and-often development cycle. "Programmers don't use launch-fast-and-iterate out of laziness. They use it because it yields the best results.... By breaking software development, Apple gets the opposite of what they intended: the version of an app currently available in the App Store tends to be an old and buggy one."
