The Future of the iPhone, according to Jason Fried

March 7, 2008

No discussion of developing with Ruby on the iPhone would be complete without mentioning Jason Fried’s take on the future of development on the iPhone:

What we saw today was the spark. The explosion will continue for twenty years. We will all feel the warmth…. just like there were a lot of players in the portable music space, there were no clear leaders. Until Apple came to town.¶ The same thing is happening today in the mobile space. Palm, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, Symbian. They’ve been players, but no one has broken out big. No one has managed to grab both the business and consumer markets like Windows did on the desktop. Until Apple came to town. At least that’s my prediction.
