    Of course they wouldn’t be. They will find the worst possible to comply while not actually making it realistically usable. Malicious compliance at its finest.

      Here’s the summary for the wikipedia article you mentioned in your comment:

      Malicious compliance (also known as malicious obedience) is the behavior of strictly following the orders of a superior despite knowing that compliance with the orders will have an unintended or negative result. It usually implies following an order in such a way that ignores or otherwise undermines the order’s intent, but follows it to the letter. A form of passive-aggressive behavior, it is often associated with poor management-labor relationships, micromanagement, a generalized lack of confidence in leadership, and resistance to changes perceived as pointless, duplicative, dangerous, or otherwise undesirable.

    @[email protected] draw for me poster art showing a spooky-looking, non-beneficial third-party app store on an Apple iPhone in Europe. The iPhone is a central element on a gradient background. The third-party app store on the screen seems hostile. style: fustercluck

    Epic lost their case with Apple regarding Fortnite, yet now Epic are looking to make Fortnite available on iOS in EU. But from the article it seems an alternate “app marketplace” would still need Apple approval anyway. It will be interesting to see how all this is going to work.

      Seems the EU law is pretty clear about not creating barriers for competitors. I suspect Apple is going to get slapped by the EU… Maybe not immediately, but my guess is before 2026. This stuff doesn’t move fast.
