Apple We've had an immense hubbub about the delay in the source code release of Honeycomb, which led to a storm of critique being sent Google's way. Turns out there's another company withholding source code, and this time it's Apple. They have stopped releasing the LGPL source code for WebKit in iOS since iOS 4.3.0, released about 8 weeks ago. Turns out - this isn't the first time Apple has refused to release (L)GPL'd code. It took them six months to release the required GPL source code for iOS 4.1.

WTF? The linked blog talks about Chrome ffs, not webkit. They mention that it uses webkit and they link to the webkit website, but the post is about Chrome - which is written entirely (and opensourced) by Google. Jobs, however, is talking about webkit.

In fact, Google starts their announcement with this:
Our recent launch of Google Chrome simply would not have been possible were it not for the awesome WebKit rendering engine and the amazing team behind it.

Webkit and "amazing team" are hyperlinks, the latter linking to ALL contributors. What the hell are you blathering about? (and I hope you realize the difference between a browser and a rendering engine).
