    App Store Relaxing Dev. Rules
    News that Apple is relaxing its Dev rules is great. apple - Gizmodo

    However, the lack of Flash on iOS for both iPhone/iPod and iPad devices still is disgruntling. Is there any likelyhood of Apple overcoming their tiff with Adobe. Adobe seem sure they will as App development programme re-starts.

    And whilst I am on my soap box - how about allowing Mozilla to develop browser technology for these devices?

    If Microsoft can be challenged on anti-monopoly and anti-trust laws forcing them to include options within their OS to use browsers other than IE, surely this same rule would apply to Apple iOS? Or am I missing something?

    What you're missing is that there is nothing preventing Mozilla from developing a browser for iDevices. There are a great many browsers already available including Opera and Atomic Web.

    I am indeed missing that. There were no other browsers available when I last looked. AppStore here I come!

    P.S. Mozilla - get yer finger out!

    Grab Atomic Web - it seems to be pretty top notch with tabs, full screen mode, etc. The free version is probably good enough, but might as well get the $0.99 version. It provides for a lot of additional settings not available in the free one. And the free one is worth the 99 cents.
