  • Daniel Jalkut, I think, offered the takeaway: Apple will work on OS X cus' of developers. Way back, when the iPhone arrived, Apple wavered on developers. With previous partners like Microsoft and Adobe, surely Apple would never give a third party the run of its OS. Cue ATT and the cell boys. But with the iPhone, maybe Apple had its Sally Field moment, when developers showed it the love they had withheld for a decade. Yeow, says Apple, by encouraging apps broad sources, meaning many developers, it could fend off the chance that any one of them could become an Adobe. And do it did. And the app economy was born.
  • For OS market share the resource mentioned in the podcast was On mentions as another site which tracks market share statistics.
