+ - Adobe to sue Apple over Flash cross-compiler ban->

sopssa writes "IT World reports that Adobe intends to sue Apple "within a few weeks," citing sources close to Adobe. Not only did the recent iPhone and iPad licensing change ban Adobe's Flash-to-iPhone cross-compiler, but also Novell's MonoTouch which lets you compile C# and .NET apps to the iPhone. "Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs". Lee Brimelow notes in his blog post that "What they are saying is that they won’t allow applications onto their marketplace solely because of what language was originally used to create them. This is a frightening move that has no rational defense other than wanting tyrannical control over developers and more importantly, wanting to use developers as pawns in their crusade against Adobe. This does not just affect Adobe but also other technologies like Unity3D."."
