Application Software Development Kit violates rules


Apple's
new iPhone application Software Development Kit is in trouble with Net neutrality activists and could violate anti-trust rules.

According to ZDnet, the application software blocks competing Web browser Firefox, Opera and Voice over IP applications such as Skype. A member of the Firefox team said that buried into the legal agreement is something which prevents the browser from being used because it support hundreds of user-created add-ons.

Apple also forbids the use of Javascript, Ruby, Python, Perl, and Java. Sun said that it was readying a version of Java for the iPhone and has warned that it will sort out the legal issues afterward. Sun has no problem filing anti-trust complaints.
