Opera Software Think of Opera what you want, but those Norwegian guys and girls know how to get publicity. The company has announced it has submitted Opera Mini to the iPhone's App Store, and it has launched a website with a count-up timer, following how long it will take Apple to approve it - if at all, of course.

If Apple cuts a content deal with National Geographics, what happens to naked african woman pictures? What about art magazines with classical paintings of naked women? Will they have a different rule for magazine and book content while keeping current "no sexually suggestive" content rule for apps except Playboy and Sport Illustrated swim suit app? How will they reconcile these conflicting rules or will they even try?


eventually apple will have to take a different stance on this because not every country has the schizophrenic view on nudity/sexuality as the US of A have. at the moment apple's just covering its ass against moronic litigations from even more moronic self proclamied guardians of decency and good christian family values (think of them as of the american equivalent of the iranian revolutionary guards). meanwhile guess where the world's largest porn industry is located.

more on topic: opera mini would definitely get a fat stamp of approval if i were to make that decision. i do think they will eventually but it will probably take a while. they may get back at opera about issues in some details but eventually these will be resolved.
