Blocking the cross-compiler is just petty. I hope Apple shoots themselves in the foot by also blocking very popular engines like Unity, MonoTouch, and others. And gets in some kind of legal trouble if they selectively enforce the "no cross-compiler" rule.
really ?? you lost an app??

As USB has spread so much, the number of products sold with Firewire still included have shrunk even more. Music interfaces can use USB2 and ASIO drivers to achieve 0 latency, so its even becoming less needed in one of its last few holdouts.
FireWire is still the fastest game in town <<i think >>,<<E-SATA ??>>>anyway
I port over 300 g files all the time.
and by FIVE WIRE its takes hrs
by USB2 if it does not crash its takes 2x AS LONG.
Since 85 percent of all itunes users and ipad /iphone. ipod itouch owners are birthed and will die in the wintel msft bloat world .AND since they will never know the pure joy of snowy love . .err err hmm . well i forget what i was saying
APPLE to save money is using THEIR standard of USB . and not its own standard .
APPLE THINKS about non mac users in the fire wire debate .
APPLE woke up and put FW back ..thank god

Flash 10.1 is at this moment vaporware, so what truthfully can be said about it? Nothing.
Oh, yes, and it's dishonest of you to suggest that all I said was, "blah blah blah .... blah blah blah." Perhaps this will jog your memory:http://forums.appleinsider.com/showp...&postcount=165

Interesting timing by Apple, by the way. Trying to kill Flash last traces of on iDevices, while opening more to Flash on desktops. What gives?
Damn you to zune accessory world dude
you forced me to read 6 pagers of junk before you supply a great topic ending point .
good one ..
And apple has a simple game plan that states if you fuck with UI in anyway bad way like battery draining banner ads or 30 second web page opening time lags then APPLE will create equal or better work arounds.
IE; APERTURE was a direct response to repeated 18 month or longer delays in ADOBE upgrading APPLE SW programs like photo shop or other creative suites. ADOBE even started to port some SW over rather fresh re writes. SCum bubbles
AD0BE felt THAT had apple by the balls ,,AND THEY DID !! for a time.
10 yrs down the road and adobe still acts like they are the kings of the hill .
Apple has moved to light speed futuristic devices that warrant 2015 type innovations. HTML5 is only the ground floor to what will be needed >>
Low power Fast loading Tiny devices demand this >>If they are to do things like stream hulu live on a wrist watch and still get a 7 hrs battery charge. Adobe IS being licked and dragged into the new brave wortld of PERFECT UI type computing.
ADOBE IS A FINE FINE COMPANY
NO ONE CAN TOUCH WHAT THEY DO
and if you do something they can't then they will buy your company and kill the the product or stamp the ADOBEE moniker on it.
LIKE THAT GREAT SW GO LIVE . That was so great until adobe bought them up ....any way my rant over flows >>> My point is ADOBE could create 5 or 6 app's for the IPAD that could be game changing for the whole market ... whole creative world down to 3rd graders,,
instead adobe pouts like a bit//////
move on ..ok ..
Adobe has to bow and serve apple ... its master //and lose its ego ....
sorry for long rant
