No surprise there.

Abuse of monopoly power stems from the monopoly, not from who holds the monopoly.

Re: Apple slow browser based web apps over its own Web Store apps

To be fair, no one has shown conclusively if it's a bug or a feature (for apple). Only that there's a difference between apps run in the browser and on the home screen.

the speed issue has been discussed in the company's developer support forums, and one developer – the same unnamed developer quoted above – confirms with The Reg that multiple bugs have been filed on the issue.

My opinion of Apple, iTunes, and their licensing models (and now their treatment of other developers) in über-nerd parlance:

Correct, and of course they cant because the platform is closed so only Apple could conclusively explain such symptoms, and it is not in their financial interest to do so.

well, it has been the policy to prevent cross-platform development so it is in-line with this. will be interesting to see when, and how long it takes to fix this.

they might just try to delay it long enough to give a temporary advantage (c.f. delaying exposing hardware acceleration APIs needed for Flash acceleration).

Re: Apple slow browser based web apps over its own Web Store apps

I have never developed on the iPhone SDK, but I think it is safe to assume there is a library for accessing network resources, and that all 3rd party apps use the same library. Except Apple themselves, of course.

Rather than Apple debilitating some apps, what is equally likely is that some developers are coding their apps badly. But I can see why an easier out would be to blame Apple.

Good one.

What's up with no "Thanks" button?
