Opera Software Think of Opera what you want, but those Norwegian guys and girls know how to get publicity. The company has announced it has submitted Opera Mini to the iPhone's App Store, and it has launched a website with a count-up timer, following how long it will take Apple to approve it - if at all, of course.

"Everyone knows that it's fine for Apple to lock out other browser makers, because they're not [engaged in illegal practices like] Microsoft."

Fixed it for you. It's legally absolutely fine for Apple to reject it, but it's going to be a tricky one to the PR people to spin.

Wrong, it just morally wrong for both to do this kind of crap.

And exactly when has legal been synonymous with moral? Moral is a relative value, legality is not.

It's morally wrong to report someone for breaking the law? News to me.

johnnysaucepn snarked...

Nope, still broken. Let me fix that for you:

"Everyone knows that it's fine for Apple to lock out other browser makers, because [they've not been convicted of illegal practices like] Microsoft [yet.]"


There you go...slightly more accurate, don't you think by the way things have been heading? Glad to have helped! ;)
