Apple Relaxes iOS Development Tool Restrictions 347

An anonymous reader writes "Earlier this year Apple caused major upset among developers by updating the iPhone developer program license with clause 3.3.1. It basically stopped the use of cross-platform compilers, meaning Adobe Flash could not be used to develop an app for the App Store. The move also put into doubt which other development platforms could be used and generally caused a lot of confusion. Apple has just significantly relaxed that policy and allowed for the use of development tools, as long as 'the resulting apps do not download any code.'"

    It's refreshing to see Apple wrong so many times in a row. Watching them backpedal is amusing.

    When was Apple wrong? Apple was never wrong. Apple knew this was right all along. There is no evidence of the old license. The old license never existed. It is dead now. Apple never endorsed it. It was a lie made by Apple's enemies to discredit Apple's name. Apple is good. Apple would never hurt you. Apple is your friend. Apple is magic. Apple has never backpedaled. Apple is at war with Google. Apple has never been at war with Microsoft. Why do you hate Apple? Apple only wants to help you. You are clearly disturbed. Apple wants to assure you this is not your fault. Please report to your nearest iThoughtCorrection facility. Apple is your friend. Trust in Apple. Apple is your friend.

    What's refreshing to see is a company that actually admits it was wrong, how often does that happen?

    If you think Apple does so more than other companies in its industry, you are drowning in the Kool-Aid.

    Obligatory Penny Arcade. [] Except probably swap from to to.

    I read this over 15 times and I really felt a warm fuzzy feeling towards Apple.
    Someone should mod parent disturbing.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.
