if that's the case, there is nothing they need to worry about.There are already apps on the app store that's doing just that.look to me they are talking about something else, maybe a magazine equivalent of the iBook store.
it's almost impossible to do.As long as they are not using Apple's infrastructure to deliver content, there is nothing Apple could do.Just like Kindle, you buy on Amazon store, content gets downloaded to your Kindle app.I believe what they are talking about is, some newspaper want to use app store's "in-app purchase" feature for free.
got to at least give them some credit for being creative.
This is how I see it
iOS = Mac OS (The benchmark)
WebOS = BeOS (The underdog with some creative edge)
Android = Windows (well... you get the idea)
