Aggh, no. I dont want a title.
"Apple’s mobile devices all ship with high performance, low power implementations of these open standards"
LOL! (Hey, Im a fanboi)
"It would be easy to applaud Jobs for backing opening standards, but this is part of a larger agenda. He's also intent of preventing developers from using a technology like Flash to build native applications for the iPhone and iPad."
Ok, so correct me if Im wrong, but aren't Adobe building a separate application to do this, nothing to do with Flash?
"He doesn't want the devices running cross-platform applications that also [sic] on hardware he didn't build. He wants iPhone developers using Apple development tools - and nothing else."
No, he wants people to code in objective-C, which the platform requires. I really don't see why this is an issue? Learn it, or don't write for it. It's not that big of a deal. I (personally) hate Java, so I would never code in it, I don't get all shouty about Android!
"Jobs has even go so far as to throw FUD at open source codecs, claiming that unspecified people are putting together a patent pool to "go after" Ogg"
To be fair, without any evidence to the contrary, you are just as bad! He said, she said. Im not saying that it is or isnt bollocks, but Im guessing that the Great Apple Pip has more heads up than your average hack.
