Re: source code access
@Pedro- Yup. Although in the time since I posted that I had lunch. And I'm feeling a little more generous. I guess the truth is that SOMEONE has to try to be a real success in China. If no one ever tries it just means they give up on a couple billion people. So with a little food in my belly I get it more. I guess Apple decided this during a lunch meeting. :)

Re: source code access
Maybe I'm cynical, but I wonder how long it will be before phones that look curiously like the iPhone begin to outsell it in China 10 to 1. And i wonder how long after that until Apple sells it phone line to a Chinese company.

source code access
Apple has reportedly given the Chinese government access to its source code to check for backdoors...that may help with regulatory hurdles in China, but I wonder about the long-term value of such compliance.
