- Forum: iPod + iTunes + AppleTV
There's a big difference... Apple's website was originally designed to sell Apple's products. They chose to add 3rd party products in service to their customers. Both the website and retail stores are company outlets for direct sales - both are designed to sell their own products. Amazon started out as a general goods shopping site and later decided to build and sell their own devices. And now, ban sales of devices that aren't in service to their own gains.
