They've proven nothing. The only way this would be of interest is if they got an app doing that onto the app store. To grab the events they have to use private Apple api's and that's something Apple would spot. Dull sensationalist garbage.

I develop for all three platforms and would have to disagree with you on debugging. Apple provide much better diagnostic tools than Android - just check out the profile tools. Anyone who thinks that eclipse is in any way stable hasn't used it much - Visual studio is much better than either imho (but no one cares about window mobile).
In terms of developer tools and experience its very much #1 Apple - #2 Android (getting better all the time) a distant #3 BlackBerry - embarrassingly bad.
If you want to develop for mobile mac is currently the best platform as you get unix and the 'home' platform of the #1 and #2 mobile platforms - plus BB (if you must)
The problem with having to 'hack' a handset is that 99% of people have no idea how to and hence don't.
Upgradability 'is' Androids biggest weakness - unless you have a Google Nexus (I do) you are likely to be left with an outdated OS sooner rather than later. The manufacturers only get cash for selling handsets they have no reason to want to upgrade the phone OS only the phone. Apple mean while get a healthy profit from selling apps so they have a reason to upgrade old handsets.
