iOS developer program

If i am not working with an institution or a company, i have to pay 99 USD, to just enroll in the iOS developer program and try out the tools. Phew..Apple is indeed maintaining it’s elitist, haute couture style. Am reminded of the movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley” where the Steve Jobs character says “They don’t have culture.We are better. We are artists.”
Can see how that has become a core part of their brand identity. But annoying to the others who are not part of the mile high club. Not unlike, high school groupism.
