    So it looks like if you're not creating apps with obj-c or its variants, you're pretty screwed. This puts a stop to potential developers who may have wanted to use AS3 and convert it in Flash CS5.

    In their forum there was an announcement that said:
    Apple employees would have to look pretty hard into the machine code to notice any difference, and this might just be a deterrent more than anything. Who knows

    I don't think they would, as far as I can tell, Adobe apps run an abstraction layer on top of the Action script code that interprets the code at runtime and turns it into actual Objective-C/C code. It'd be pretty easy to tell if there's an abstraction layer running. I think.

    I knew about this for a while now and wondered how Apple would respond to this work around. Now we know.
