Noone sold out... We merely came to a mututal agreement with the fine
people at Apple to discontinue support for all other targets and work
exclusivly on ipods and their upcoming devices... The great news here
(other than the wonderful cash bonus most of us will get :D ) is the
coming support for the entire ipod product range (including the
iphone!).. but we have to keep this hush for now...
