"Open-source CRM developer SugarCRM has been snared by the dark,

"SugarCRM has completely re-written the mobile version of its
software to work on Apple's iPhone and the iPad, dumping HTML to
run on natively using Appcelerator's Titanium. SugarCRM for the
iPad is due to be announced today with a beta version of SugarCRM
massive use of the emerging HTML 5 standard, company co-founder and
vice president of products Clint Orem told The Reg.
