Apple iPhone SDK Rejectment Letter?


After reading the live blog of the press conference on March 6th and then watching the video of it, I was really excited about playing with the SDK, especially the OpenGL and OpenAL stuff that was demoed.Excitedly I went to, $99 in hand. Unfortunately, I was met with a “please refresh this page and check back later message.” After waiting, and switching to Firefox (I initially used Safari), I logged in and applied. I started to rejoice, then looked at my screen. Another canned message:

Thank you for submitting your information.While we process your information, please visit the iPhone Dev Center to download the iPhone SDK and access a wealth of technical resources.Please note, the iPhone Developer Program will initially be available in the US and will expand to other countries in the coming months.Next StepsYou will receive notification of your enrollment status. Enrollment ID: XXXXXXXXXX 

Deflated, although still bearing hope, I eagerly awaited their email. Day 1 passed. Then day 2, 3…you get the picture.Finally, today, I see a message arrive from “iPhone Developer Program.” Oooo, excitement again…or so I thought:

Dear Registered iPhone Developer,Thank you for expressing interest in the iPhone Developer Program. We have received your enrollment request. As this time, the iPhone Developer Program is available to a limited number of developers and we plan to expand during the beta period. We will contact you again regarding your enrollment status at the appropriate time.Thank you for applying.Best regards,iPhone Developer Program– snip – 

I’ve been an a loyal customer and somewhat of a fanboy for years. I just don’t get it. Steve and company has this big press conference about the SDK, then they don’t give people access like they said they would?

So Apple, what’s up with the rejection letter?…At least they haven’t taken my $99.

Good shoes I bought these shoes for my wife and I for running and other outdoor activities because I naturally run up on my forefoot and I hate wearing shoes with all of the extra padding that only adds bulk. We have had them for several months now and I no longer get shin splints when I run and find that I like walking around barefoot (real barefoot) considerably far more now. Go easy when you…
