    So because Steve Jobs wrote a letter, of course, John Warnock and and Chuck Geschke have to write one too. In theirs, entitled "Our thoughts on open markets", they take a rather predictable, and somewhat incorrect tact, namely that Apple deciding who can develop native applications for the iPhone that are sold through the App Store is exactly the same as Apple trying to control the web. So you get an odd muddle of a letter...
