Mac software developer Craig Hockenberry has never been very interested in creating applications for cell phones. "It's a lot of politics, and less money" to be made compared with creating software for computers, he says, explaining that programmers have always been forced to bow to a litany of requirements set by wireless carriers, handset makers and other software companies. With billions of people carrying cell phones, software makers large and small have long eyed the wireless market hungrily as the next big growth opportunity.

Great article, and very comprehensive regarding software development, and is there any money to be made in it! Hey, I run several Web Sites, one of those dedicated to Linux, and never made any Google cash.
I would have to argue that the iPhone is "waiting" for approval in either Europe or Asia. It will not "fly" in either space.
I think that we will see much of the same being repeated in the future. No one making much money for their personal efforts, while the big guys try to figure out how to go Global.
It will be a Wireless World in the future to be sure; however, the great guys that do their thing won't find a reward. IMHO.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
