Its OK if you're Apple, right?  JavaScript is V8 (a JIT) on the iPhone isn't it?  

At least on Safari it is "Nitro".  So I guess Mobile Safari doesn't contain V8 either.

And if Java is on the iPhone its probably a JIT too.

Er yes, well it's your operating system, your hardware, your legal documents. One can do what one wants, as long as one can
keep the other guy out of your playpen. So who does hand executable pages to V8? Good question...

Java is NOT on the iPhone. Neither is Flash.  *cough* well interpreted flash, Adobe has some static compiled
version they make or something now. Grind Flash thru some process, makes iphone app.
