My source did not (and would have no reason to) lie to me. He was wrong. What happened is that his source for the information, who had direct knowledge of Apple’s decision, told him, more or less, simply that Apple did not reject the Google Voice app.
What interests me about this — if true — is that it would mean Apple may not have been splitting hairs when they told the FCC “we didn’t reject it, we’re still looking at it.” That, maybe, they sincerely think there’s nothing wrong with holding an app in the review process for months while they decide whether to publish it, it’s just part of the process.
Which is kind of scary.
