Is Apple killing competition in its App Store?

Friday, September 26, 2008

Apple's iron-fisted control of the iPhone is starting to draw protests from some software developers who wonder if the company’s policy will end up squelching competition.

In at least one recent case, Apple appears to have denied approving a software program, Podcaster, for the iPhone, that could be considered competitive with the company’s own offerings or plans.

Apple not only makes the iPhone, but also controls its operating system and has absolute authority over what programs can be added to the device.
