Apple John Gruber has found out that cross-compilers are no longer allowed in iPhone OS 4.0. "My reading of this new language is that cross-compilers, such as the Flash-to-iPhone compiler in Adobe's upcoming Flash Professional CS5 release, are prohibited. This also bans apps compiled using MonoTouch - a tool that compiles C# and .NET apps to the iPhone. It's unclear what this means for tools like Titanium and PhoneGap, which let developers write JavaScript code that runs in WebKit inside a native iPhone app wrapper. They might be OK."

"But the dictatorship-loving Apple consumers will like it, no doubt.


I like my house looking clean and consistent. I don't want my neighbor dumping on my lawn. Get it?
"

You mean, you don't like when people put pink flamingos on their lawn, so you're glad the home owners association stopped it from happening?

Funny, I've always hated HOA's, they're usually made up of grumpy old people who have nothing better to do but tell others what to do.
