But they loose every customer who doesn't use or want use Amazon. So their loss can be substantial. They also loose the opportunity to sell the books on their own or the authors websites because they are being undercut and their product devalued to benefit Amazon.
That was a quote from an article announcing the feature. And 3D is tied to dual processors and screen resolution according to their website. Its funny how they make it hard to figure out what it works with. I know more than I want to because tech people I worked with talking people into them and then I End up having to trouble shoot them. The point is that Google rushed this feature to market after the Apple leaks to steal their thunder. The reason their I/O was so quite...
Haters... So sad. Just like the App store, the publisher sets the price. Not Apple. If the set the price to zero Apple is fine with that too. The key is it is the publisher or owner that determines the price. In a sense the previous model should be considered collusion if any thing. Amazon setup exclusive contracts with the same wholesale price from each major publisher.
Google Earth is not android Maps. Its also funny that Google who does everything in beta never mentioned a word about this until May 27, 2012 Just 16 days after the first public leak about Apple dropping them and doing their own maps with flyover. http://www.todaysiphone.com/2012/05/ios-6-rumor-apple-replacing-google-maps-with-in-house-program/ What a coincidence.
you are right this was the desktop and wrong they did not RELEASE a comparable feature for android even by last december. "Were Google to launch a 3D Maps app for Android with similar specifications to its current desktop maps product, it would only work on about 29 percent of the platform's reported installed base of devices, just like the company's Google Now, which requires Jelly Bean 4.1."
They only made it available to developers 6 months after apple. http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/05/22/googles-new-3d-maps-destroy-manhattan-in-the-wake-of-apples-flyover. I'm not convinced they actually implemented either. This is the only article that speaks of it anywhere on the internet and it says it is to get it not that it was ever released.  They even removed all mention of the features for each version.  
The do no evil is basically, Don't look over here, theres nothing to see.  We would never do evil.
You mean like the much worse implementation Google released last month?  LOLOLOLO!!!!!!!!! http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/05/22/googles-new-3d-maps-destroy-manhattan-in-the-wake-of-apples-flyover
You may be the insane one.  Why did they just announce adding vector for android unless they went backwards and decided to return. And they announced flyover  days before Apple's announcement after all of the leaks said what Apple was going to announce.  Notice how long it took to copy it.  They were just trying to divert attention.   Actually they were holding Apple, who helped them improve their mobile maps, back by limiting them to tile based maps.  Google did not have...
I guess he didn't realize he was replying to an engineer who actually is required to know this information to be able to do their jobs.
