Got any comments?

Have I got it hideously wrong? Or did someone else?

Reply with quote Yes, this emulator is nothing more than an iframe that probably knocks out css included with the @import rule.

Misleading.

Read your rant, interesting - I happen to agree with the essense of your argument and that's why I personally haven't signed it. I would willingly sign one lobbying for all-around cheaper access to the product concerned.

I don't believe however, the argument of the market being small...it's probably small because it's so expensive, and it's so expensive probably because, as you rightly say, they operate in a near monopoly forcing charities like the RNIB to splash out on TV commercials to plea for financial pledges from the public.

However - there has to be one doesn't there - i'd like to know your interest in this area as the use of inflammatory language reads like a tabloid press-cutting.

You have some good arguments underneath the sound-bites but the volume of vehemence is not doing either side of the Cause any good at all.

If the price came down - which I believe could be done quite easily - then it's use would commensurately rise across all interested communities - I agree that "we" have a lesser need and Right for cheap ownership than the intended audience but I also believe that that same audience would also welcome more ownership by the web-designer community if it meant more accessible websites too.

no, i don't want an ipaq thank you very much...a simple SDK with a true emulator will do for me...like openwave do for instance http://developer.openwave.com/ Rolling Eyes
