You’re very close Bryan. Very close. This whole swimsuit thing only comes about because Apple approves all apps for the platform. The pretexts for doing that were tenuous when they launched, and even more tenuous now. If others can ship apps without Apple as middleman, there is no big issue about what it carries or doesn’t carry in its store. They deserve all the grief they are getting for that decision. They’ll surely get a lot more.
