Silverlight for iPod

Well, no not quite. Although Apple have announced some changes in their terms of service agreement for developers, it is more likely due to a US Anti-trust investigation rather than Steve Jobs having an epiphany and glasnost breaking out in Cupertino, CA.

“Today we are making some important changes to our iOS Developer Program license... to relax some restrictions we put in place earlier this year." -

Apple is not going to allow peace in out time and lay down the red carpet for Adobe flash applications, nor, I am afraid does it open the door for Microsoft’s Silverlight platform, yet.

Silverlight for iPod  is something that fans of Silverlight and Silverlight developers would love to see. The impending launch of Windows Phone 7 on multiple hardware platforms should see a significant revival of Microsoft’s fortunes in the Mobile Phone market.

Today the closest association of Silverlight and iPods is to be found at where you can shop on a traditional HTML/ASP.NET based website or you can shop using the Silverlight version of the website.

Supporters of Silverlight, Silverlight developers, and iPod fans can show their support for Silverlight and satisfy their curiosity about Silverlight by purchasing their new ipods on the Silverlight for iPod version of cheap-iPods.
