Guy wins Pulitzer, finally has iPhone app accepted by Apple

Matthew Shaer's headline says it all.

Apple should be embarrassed. Mark Fiore, who got his cartoon app approved by Apple only after his Pulitzer win last week, says he holds no grudge.

Loved this quote:

Earlier this year, tech guru Tim Bray, who recently signed on at Google, called the iPhone a "Disney-fied walled garden surrounded by sharp-toothed lawyers. The people who create the apps serve at the landlord’s pleasure and fear his anger. I hate it."

Hat tip to dear old Dad and my friend Adrian Sinnott.
