Opera Software Since the announcement from Opera about submitting Opera Mini to the App Store made it to the front page, I can't really relegate the application's admittance into the App Store to the side column - I'm not particularly liked by the Apple fans as it is. So, here it goes, full frontal: Apple has accepted Opera Mini into the App Store.

yes, apple has a tight control over their products and it has served them well, i see no reason why they should change and i do not see how you though this is what i was saying. My complain is not with apple's business model, my complain is with apple follower's willingness to act like a a free extension of apple PR arm.

If you think apple like tight control and you are happy with it, why not simply say so?

Apple doesnt like flash. The reason given initially for why it was not allowed was because it was a memory hog and apple fanboy took this explanation and run with it. Adobe made flash compile to native code and the problem now with flash is with its cross platform nature and the fanboys are running with this explanation too. Why not just say "its a runtime control issue"? why can debate what purpose this control serves but we can atleast agree it is primarily a control issue and all other explanation are spins.

I do not have an ingrained hatred of apple..every company has a PR arm, apple's arm seem to extend to their customers and i was drawing attention to this extension, why you though i was attacking apple and its successful business model is beyond me.
