CNET: Apple cracks open the iPod, carefully

“Tim Deal, an analyst with Technology Business Research, said that Apple is trying to strike a balance by opening the iPod to some developers but not making it an open platform.

‘I think by offering a (developer) kit they would expand their opportunity for innovation, and thus multiply their organic development efforts,” Deal said. “However, by being selective, they are maintaining a conservative approach, which will help them avoid becoming entangled in a quagmire of whimsical yet useless ideas.’”
