Makes sense, well said. AND what they did not think about was how they were leaving those developers who had created 2.0 apps without now a current customer base for half a year or so. And how also any new developers might be put off now from coming into an ecosystem without a vibrant number of other developers to surround them to entice consumers to buy the new apps. Thus they may not have been setback only 6 months, it could be as much as 12 months. That is, provided they get some apps and customers in the latter half of this year to jumpstart their ecosystem again.

Ironically also they fractured bonds with a community that was created and strengthened somewhat with technology and social media tools. They were too old school to properly understand this.
