Apple Apple is rejecting applications that use Dropbox because if the user of such an application does not have the actual Dropbox application installed, he is presented with a Dropbox login form through Safari, which happens to also show a sign-up link, and after clicking on that sign-up link, users could potentially run into one of the paid Dropbox options. Application developers and users surprised by this may need to read about the frog and the scorpion.

osnews has paid accounts, an osnews app linking to the website would have to be rejected too. We couldn't risk having the scam artists behind osnews make a sale outside the sacred ibazaar.

Computing sure has gone downhill hasn't it? Mobile computing has much potential, it's too bad consumers are being roped into closed devices. We are at the forefront of the computing dark ages.
