We're all forgetting what market apple is in:
They make their money selling the iPhone, they couldn't care less about what you do with it after.
Remember how stubborn Apple is, despite every iBook/Powerbook/Macbook/MacBook Pro user CRYING OUT for an option to stop the laptops suspending automatically when you close the lid, there is none.
But do apple care? Of course not, you've bought their product, as far as they are concerned, job done.
