Here’s a look at just some of the things that we kept our eye on this week:

  • Why nobody hates software more than software developers. Hint: it’s because we know the volumes of bad code that get poured into it.
  • Google Voice applications got rejected from the iPhone’s App Store. This is causing a lot of concern among both developers and users of the iPhone platform. Michael Arrington even declared that he’s “quitting” the iPhone.
  • Two researchers announced they had discovered a way to virally infect and hijack the functions of every iPhone on earth. Thankfully, none of Get Set Games’ devices were affected once they unveiled the exploit on Thursday. Apple was quick to release a patch.
  • In a bid to keep iPhone jailbreaking illegal, Apple claimed in a filing that jailbreaking would turn the iPhone into a weapon against cell-phone towers.
  • We watched in amazement as Yahoo! committed seppuku this week, making it a historic week in online search.
