    Surely the EU should sue apple for not allowing alternate browsers on the iphone? and once again sue Microsoft if they are doing the same?

    by native apps they mean anything that isn't running in the .Net sandbox land.
    throw new ArgumentException (String, String, Exception)

    Closed platforms, closed news at 10.

    Sorry, but nobody complains about Game Consoles not being open to native apps developed by other companies.

    The problem is that Game Consoles and 'Smart' phones like the iPhone and WP7 straddle a line between devices and computers. Either artificially or to benefit limited/specialised hardware.

    The thing is this is what the customers voted for. Open enough to do things they want, but closed enough they don't have to bother themselves with choosing. This is why we have loads of incompatible dock connectors, non-removable batteries and 'smart' phones that will not run native apps.

    If you don't like it don't buy it. Neither Apple or Microsoft have a monopoly *yet*.
