    Ammendment to Advice to Apple from Brian (because they asked) from Dan (because he asked):
    Third, they need to share more app profits with developers, developers, developers, developers.

    Well written article my man, thanks for the insight.

    This kind of writing is the reason Icrontic should have more readers than Gizmodo.

    If we could pump out this kind of writing on a daily basis, we probably would :p

    The heavy specs might make the new cloud gaming stuff that's been going on more interesting though

    AirPlay + OnLive could be a nice combo with your phone as the controller and apple tv as the console. Something like that...I dunno. For the most part I agree with the author, but I think if some developers think outside the box as far as controlling on a touch screen goes, good things might happen with this GPU plus AirPlay.

    AirPlay and OnLive are a great combo, but that pretty much removes the iPhone from the picture; you don't even really need a phone for that. Even so, you definitely don't need this kind of GPU for that.

    I agree with you that developers need to think outside the box; there are other ways to control a game (such as creative use of front-facing camera or tilt/motion sensors).

    Great uses of the tilt sensors on iOS: Katamari Damacy and Super Monkey Ball. Cooking Mama also uses motion detection, but it doesn't seem to work nearly as well.

    A new Myst game would work well on a touch-only device.

    They can always sell a separate controller which plugs into socket for those who want hard buttons. Imagine something 8-10 mm wide...

    Not that I would mind, but I would worry for Nintendo's sake. If Apple ends up dominating the handhelds... Well, I can easily see where that would leave Nintendo. Dead in the water.
