How is it desperation?Apple is doing fine in Asia and will always improve. Not sure what Europe is about.
1. Barrier to entry is Amazon's predatory pricing. Sure the pubs can go somewhere else but Amazon is the dominant player. What don't you get about that.2. What?!! Amazon sets the pricing. You can't be that foolish to think pubs are willing to lower the price of ebooks below cost. How can Apple leverage anything when they weren't in the market? You think Apple had a near monopoly in music and movies yet think Amazon is just a majority player in ebooks prior to the iPad?...
