re: After Flashback, Apple Walled Gardens Won't Help
"As far as taking away our options, I've known organizations that simply could not write iOS apps because their legal departments wouldn't agree to Apple's terms and conditions."
What were the circumstances? There shouldn't be any reason, that I can think of, why a company could not develop any iOS app they wanted to develop for their own internal use. If a legal department is shutting down all iOS development, I would have the CIO take it to the GC and ask them why hundreds of other companies have approved the terms and conditions but they cannot be approved at this company. If the company in question is a software developer writing commercial applications, then there may be some sort of unique circumstance.
