    Not to mention they should be grateful Apple has the Kindle App on the iOS devices.   I don't see music and movies sold through itunes on the Kindle...   Maybe the DOJ needs to look into THAT instead...
    Great post.  It is not the job of the government to keep making publishers money.  As it is, the author doesn't get paid nearly enough for THEIR own work.   This is called Free Enterprise. Capitalism.   The market determines what it will support.   If there is a way for authors to cut out the middle man, then they should be able to do so.  No questions asked.
    Ignorant mob mentality in full effect there...   Apple never raised prices.   They sold books using a model that required book publishers to PLAY FAIR. that's it.   It protected Apple from having to sell books at high prices if Amazon colluded with a publisher to sell lower on Amazon.  And it also allowed others to be protected if those books were sold lower on Apple's platform. If that happened, then it would require the publisher to allow that lower price to be...
Wow. Samsung should just shut up already. And stop stealing. And be glad that the Korean judged helped them out by diminishing the amount of money they have to pay Apple for stealing. Then they have the nerve to demand a retrial? here is an idea Samsung... STOP stealing from Apple. And then stop wasting taxpayer dollars and precious court time with your frivolous lawsuits.
So...   Apple makes a change to their payment system. One Apple's products. Running Apple software. Using Apple servers.   And the DOJ says Apple needs to like Amazon more. That's what it amounts to.    Heck, maybe the DOJ needs to... you know... actually be just and fair and make Amazon have iTunes available on Kindles.    No excuses.  iTunes is available on Mac and PC. Easily done on Kindle.   That's really the only monopolistic, anticompetitive...
    LOL.  No.  The man is a project manager.  Not a CEO.   Too many problems hiring someone like him.   1) People factor. He doesn't work well with others.  He needs to be seen as the only person that "really matters." that is going to conflict with a lot of folks at MS, who will likely not be thrilled with the guy. Especially someone who wants all the credit for success and won't accept blame for the failures.   2) Loyalty factor.  Forstall looked out for himself.  not...
In other news, MSFT is up 2 bucks after this announcement...   LOL   Mr. Elop of Nokia is probably next to go.
Steve Jobs DEFINED Apple.   Then Apple tanked under the helm of a soda salesman.   Then, he REDEFINED Apple.   Then leadership was handed to a proven leader and supply chain master and apple sold more than ever.   Time Cook REFINES Apple.   The last thing Apple needed was another "rock star" CEO.  they needed a corporate genius who loves, respects, and thoroughly represents the inherent DNA set in place. not only that, but it seems he carries that DNA...
I don't know about this. I would expect the "iPhone" font to be the new Helvetica Ultralight (although it may be close enough since the plastic case shows Helvetica Light font) featured prominently within the new OS. But who know. The lack of any FCC verbiage is interesting as well. I thought at first perhaps they didn't have approval yet, but need to manufacture the cases well ahead of time and would engrave the numbers later, but that just seems inefficient. On one...
The problems abound. Poole wanted a docudrama on Steve jobs. With a healthy helping of apple legend. But that's not what this was. This was Ashton kutcher trying to be more than he is. Jobs was a legend. A very serious man, passionate about perfection. Kutcher is a buffoon. He was the perfectly wrong choice for this film. And the single biggest reason for its failure. He might do well in some genres, but not this. He may have done a decent job acting like Steve, but...
