This is becoming really frustrating. Say what you will about Android and Google but at least I can develop and test applications without having to depend on Google. Right now, I can't test anything because Apple's website is down (and consequently, I can't generate certificates, provisioning files or register UDIDs). Google Play Developer Dashboard goes down? Sure, great, let me know when it comes back and I'll continue testing in the mean time.

This is the first time that the "walled garden" approach (in a rather indirect way) has burned me and it's left a sour taste in my mouth. I'm fairly frustrated right now so I can only imagine how sour that taste is for larger developers. On top of this, it has become really clear that Apple still doesn't know how to secure network resources (see here for more). There is no reason that a major technology company like this should be down this long for a security breach. Suffice it to say, it's going to be incredibly hard for me to recommend any cloud based services that Apple manages. I suppose the choice now is between submitting your information to a company that will use it for advertising (Google) or submitting it to one that doesn't know what "security" means.

...okay, maybe I'm a little more frustrated about the lack of security than I thought.

I know many developers are wondering if they are doing a ground up rewrite of the Dev Portal. Its just a rumor, but at this point, many are hoping so just because its been down for so long.

Said rumours are wrong.

I just checked - I wish it was back up.

EDIT: The system status page says parts of it are up but I can't log in.

EDIT 2: Parts are indeed up! I finally managed to add my other iOS device.
