Like the the Financial Times which has totally left the Apps platform for an enhance HTML mobile Web scenario, MIT's Technology Review has abandoned its App strategy.

Writing in Tech Review, Jason Pontin, who is both editor-in-chief and publisher explains how difficult and costly the Apple iOS integration has been for the venerable publication.

We have republished that interview today.
