    “Of course, this doesn’t rule the possibility of seeing similar features integrated into iOS 6, but it definitely looks less likely now.”

    Everyone’s gonna be sad now, I am.

    I wish they would announce these things in a more visible way when they are getting a bad rap from developers and consumers regarding app store decisions. They have a pretty bad reputation and better explainations like this would go a long way to helping.

    The issue isn’t what Apple is or isn’t doing. It’s the developers. They need to stop whining about poor treatment by Apple when they have pulled stunts like this. Apple has been very clear that the use of Airplay  in such a manner requires a license. Rogue Amoeba would have known this and did it anyway. They played foul and got caught. Claiming they had no idea what was going on was them playing foul again.
