The iPhone SDK announcement, including Exchange, ActiveSync, $100M iFund, games, IM, and more.

  • Apple had a little annoucement
    (and none of us were invited)
  • The iPhone got a little enterprise-booster, with Microsoft Activesync, VPN (including Cisco IPSec), other corporate security features and even direct Microsoft Exchange support (and "you're email doesn't go through Canada": cough, Blackberry, cough)
  • iPhone gets pushed as a big gaming platform, even EA's Spore will be on the iPhone
  • iPhone SDK is released (with more than 100,000 downloads already).  Developers have to pay $99 to join the dev program, and free apps are hosted for free, Apple takes a 30% cut of revenue on paid apps.  Apps will be availble (only) via the on-iPhone appstore, coming as part of the iPhone 2.0 software update in june.
  • Kleiner Perkins (KMBC), venture capital firm, is launching a $100,000,000 iFund for iPhone developers
  • AIM will be on the iPhone
  • TSA cannot believe the Macbook Air is a real laptop ("It has some lines where the drive should be!", and "Where are the ports on the back!")
  • Steven Levy may have Recyled his Macbook Air with a copy of NYT
