In response to the tired argument that the iPhone App Store is filled with crap:
People used to slam the Mac because there weren’t as many applications for it as there were for the PC. What people failed to note was that most PC apps were crappy or duplicates of each other. Still, it became a marketing bludgeon to keep the Mac down, so to speak. Now Apple has a platform that is in the PC’s position, with lots of available applications as well as momentum. And suddenly people are pointing out this inherent flaw.
