Apple To TomTom: 'Oh No You Di'int!' *snap* *snap*

The unofficial happiness between TomTom and the iPhone has taken a turn for the worse, as Apple has more or less forbidden applications from doing what the TomTom application is designed to do. Hidden deep in the iPhone's Software Developer's Kit agreement is a bit of legalese explaining...well, you can read it for… » 6/11/08 2:00pm 6/11/08 2:00pm
