More iPad silliness

2010-05-17 21:34:49.939733+00 by Dan Lyke 5 comments

Steve Jobs at the Apple shareholder's meeting earlier this year:

“Something like HyperCard on the iPad? Yes, but someone would have to create it”

Someone did!, and then Apple shut them down.

As you may know, on the 8th of April, Apple changed the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement, which impacts our development of revMobile. The new agreement added a clause which required that applications be originally written in Objective-C, C++ or JavaScript. As revMobile applications are originally written in revTalk, not in one of these languages, their policy changes effectively prohibit revMobile on the iPhone/iPad. The new clause also prohibits frameworks and compatibility layers, which also describes revMobile in its present form.

Among the really silly things with the state of iPhone development is that any attempt to claim Flash would run too slowly in the iPad given the state of JavaScript on the iPad is absolutely ludicrous. Slowest damned Java Script EVAR!!1!

You're getting closer and closer to convincing me even though I already have the various capabilities in existing devices...

Hmmm. That'd let me put the OS4.0 beta on my iPhone...

Must be the Apple OS and other layers, because similiar processor systems (like my N900) works just fine on Youtube or Hulu or YouPorn.. using Flash.
