Opera Software This is actually pretty big news - both exciting and tragic at the same time. Opera has revealed Opera Ice, its next mobile browser, to PocketLint. This new browser represent a big shift in both user interface as well as rendering engine, since it has a new, unique interface, as well as a new rendering engine... New to Opera, that is, as it's a WebKit-browser.

Apart from being incredibly rude, your comment denotes a huge lack of law and real-world knowledge: you do not need to be a convicted monopolist to be doing something illegal.

Problem is this would be a long and very expensive trial and nobody wants to be in bad terms with Apple for the future.

Apple isn't doing anything illegal. They have not been shown to break the law. They don't have the market share to justify such claims.

Who gives a crap if they are "in bad terms with Apple" or not? Apple is not God.

They are god in regards to approving or rejecting your app in their stores. So yes, they ARE god.

In addition to that, companies think in the future: will I need a license from Apple to manufacture magsafe connectors? cases for their phones? will they delay (almost impossible to prove) approving your app?
