Apple "Apple also heard about the theme and ad campaign. I received a call from our contact at Velti this evening as well as an email asking me to please take the theme out of Cydia. On the phone, he explained Apple had contacted Toyota and requested they remove the theme and stop the advertising campaign. They (Velti) in turn contacted me relaying the message. The reason Velti listed for the removal request of the theme emailed through our dev portal was 'Toyota's making us take it down...' Toyota had agreed to do so to 'maintain their good relationship with Apple', our Velti contact told me on the phone."

Throwing shit at Google will not make Apple shine. Apple remains one of the worst if not the worst company in the history of technology as far as openness is concerned. Do you even realize that Google DOES ALLOW alternative app stores such as Amazon's?

Yes this openness is clearly paying off

Of course, they're finally realising that isn't doing them any good and they're becoming less open by the day (but never publicly admitting it).
