What's the sound? A screeching u-turn, followed by excuses

Craig Grannell on Apple’s u-turn on web apps:

Apple has performed a screeching U-turn on killing web apps, perhaps because the European Commission publicly stated there was no need for Apple to scrap them in the first place. Oh dear. I look forward to certain (mostly US) commentators retracting their “the bad and evil EU is forcing our beloved Apple to do a bad thing” stance and replacing it with a “the bad and evil EU is making it impossible for Apple to know what it should do and that is a bad thing” stance. Fun!

The ability of US-based Apple commentators to both fail to understand how the EU works and make so many excuses for the company’s bad behaviour is really quite a thing.
