• Apple Finally Gives into Flash... Kinda... a Little

    Its seems the folks at Apple finally found that chill pill we had all hoped the company's executives would take at some point regarding Cupertino's strict, unrelenting, and, until now, less than malleable rules regarding Flash for iPhone, iPod, and iPad applications.

    On Thursday, however, Apple took a step back in hopes of quieting down the masses who claim that Apple's harsh restrictions for developers are "anti-competitive." In a nutshell, Apple said today that it will allow for scenarios in which Adobe’s Flash video software will work on Apple’s products.

    In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while preserving the security we need.
    With regulators, media, and cynical consumers breathing down Apple's back relentlessly on the company's anti-Flash posturing, it doesn't come as a complete shock that Apple is - at least somewhat - relaxing its uptight no-Flash policy, while still propping up its "security concerns" as a fail-safe for ensuring that Flash doesn't see runaway, rampant growth on the iOS platform.
