I was at a wifi seminar for work yesterday and the bluetooth app engineer for Microchip was telling us that Crapple has started to implement Bluetooth in a non-standard way, which of course is going to force a bunch of developers to comply and pay the "Apple Tax" just to be able to sell accessories. I understand they want to be "ground-breaking" all the time, but undermining standards constantly because you can and you're big enough to do it sucks. That is costing $$$ everywhere for everyone. The Bluetooth SIG should stop bending over and pull their qualification.
