iPhone Dev Team Quits… April Fools?

Dev TeamSo the news is all over the blogs that the iPhone Dev Team has bailed. And not just all over the web, but their own website shows nothing but a resignation letter. Hopefully, this is just an early April Fools joke. Let us and the Dev Team know what you think in the comments. Here’s a copy of the goods:


The “DevTeam” would like to announce the immediate withdrawal from the iPhone development arena.

It was anticipated that the DevTeam would be releasing a tool for the iPhone sometime this week, unfortunately it has been decided to withdraw all development activities on this tool.

Criticism of the validity of the tool has been reported in the press and certain actions were taken to prevent the release of the tool on the 30th March.

Due to these actions, certain developers ceased their work immediately, with others reconsidering their position.

On Monday the 31st of March the DevTeam was approached by an unnamed party to sell all of the intellectual property and related applications.

After much consideration the offer was accepted and work has ceased.

The name of the company that has made this offer is private, and the details of the deal are confidential.

Our only comment is that PwnageTool and other such applications will not be seen outside of the lab.

We would like to thank our users for their support over the last 10 months.

    I’m sorry… this is just too predictable…
    You know that if something HORRIBLE happens on March 30th – April 1st, it’s most likely a prank.
    Too bad I didn’t fall for it :(
