PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Apple posted on their developer website guidelines with instructions on optimising web-applications for the iPhone. "Developers can create Web 2.0 applications that look and behave just like the applications built into iPhone, and provide seamless integration with iPhone applications and services including making a phone call, sending an email, and displaying a location in Google Maps. Third-party applications created using web standards can extend iPhone's capabilities without compromising its reliability or security."

Now I know I'm being a bit facetious, but shouldn't Apple create devices and software that complies with (or at least tries to work within) existing standards instead of laying out their own?

This is isn't entirely fair, though. There's a difference between championing your own new standard and offering development guidelines for 'optimal user experience'.
