First there were rumors about Apple using bing as their official search provider. Then there was the rant by Steve Job’s calling Google motto bs. Then Google struck back adding multi touch to the Nexus One, now this.

An iPhone developer has received a letter from Apple stating that it can not use the word “Android” in their app. In fact Apple wants to remove that word from all its apps in the app store. Idiot moves like this is the prime reason more and more people are choosing Android and this will only lead to the demise of the iPhone. Nobody wants to be under a dictatorship and that is what Apple has been. Here is a copy of the letter.
