Windows "Senate Judiciary Committee staffers plan to take a look at allegations that Microsoft has made it difficult for competing Web browsers to run on a certain version of Windows, an aide to Antitrust subcommittee Chairman Herb Kohl told The Hill Thursday." Good. We have to nip this in the bud, and with a bit of luck, it alerts Washington to the iOS situation as well. More browser competition equals a better web - mobile devices aren't magically exempt from this just because they have no keyboard. As simple as that.

MollyC,

"[IOS] continues to get a free ride, while an OS with zero marketshare is put under scrutiny."

You're posts continue to imply that MS should be allowed to block competitors *because* apple is doing it. However, is that seriously the underlying reason for your opinion? If it's not (and I hope it isn't), then maybe you could explain your reasoning on it's own without referencing apple at all. The "oh, but he does it too" line isn't a good reason to justify harmful corporate practices.
