Sure, developer interest in Apple is waning. Sure.

David Gewirtz, two days ago, claiming “iOS developers abandoning sinking Apple mothership: Biggest drop ever”:

In what may be another sign that Apple’s fortunes are on the downward slope, an interesting chart reports that Objective-C popularity has plummeted for the first time in two years, and more than ever before.

iOS (and Mac) developers, today

Last year developers had half a day to get their WWDC ticket purchases in before the conference sold out, this year tickets sold out in just two paltry minutes. Apple restrictions limited sales to one per person and five tickets per organization. Tickets cost $1,599.00. It doesn’t really matter though, they’re already gone.

And this guy is, apparently, “CBS Interactive’s Distinguished Lecturer… a regular CNN contributor, and a guest commentator for the Nieman Watchdog of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.”

    If developer interest wasn’t waning, tickets would have sold out in half the time.

    Hm, “regular CNN contributor” is a red flag.
