The iPhone SDK and free software: not a match

This is all 100% correct. You can't use GPL with the iPhone, and the entire Apple philosophy is opposed to the FSF's philosophy. If you are in the FSF, or agree with their goals. you should not own, use, or program for the iPhone. You can use Android or any Linux phone.

Don't be a hypocrite. If you use Linux, you are not wanted on Apple platforms, and you should not want Apple platforms.

This will make everyone who uses Macs and iPhones much happier, not having to hear your high-pitched whining. This will make you happier, since you won't have to experience the jealousy of seeing good software side-by-side with your ugly GPL junk.
