From an iPhone OS 4 Developer Launch Q&A (will update with link when it’s over):
Q: Why have you veered away from widgets on the iPad?
A: We just shipped it on Saturday. And then we rested on Sunday.
Q: So widgets are possible?
A: Everything is possible.
Could they be any more snotty? By the way, this was literally three questions after this:
Q: Is there going to be any change in Apple’s position on Java or Flash on version four?
Clearly not everything is possible.
Why make excuses and vague hints? Just answer the question!
Q: Can you do anything to make these phones more safe so people wont’ use them when they shouldn’t be using them (like when driving).
A: I think we do more than most to connect our phones into cars’ control systems. We’ve done a great job for handsfree calling and such. We’ve done a better job on that than everyone else.
In other words, no. No, we can’t. Oh, and we’re better than everybody else. Good heavens, talk about a defensive prima donna.
