EU Regulators Decide Apple Has Been Scared Straight

The easing of Apple’s restrictions on iOS development tools has won the company some good will abroad. In light of the change in policy, the European Union has closed its investigation into an Apple restriction on interpreted code that prevented developers from using tools that could easily make their apps available on multiple platforms.

Now that the company is offering cross-border iPhone warranty service, there’s no need to pursue that investigation any further, either.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
