  That's what the agency model is. By itself, there's nothing illegal about it because there is room to negotiate the wholesale prices. But when combined with the "most favored nation" clause, they wound up fixing both the retail price and the wholesale price. That's why there was an issue.   Whether the publishers coordinated this, and whether Apple was involved are the questions.
  According to Tim Cook's statement, Apple does not do that.

With all this stuff leaking already, it sounds like the iPad 5 is ready for production. Then why are the rumors predicting a 3rd quarter release?
If they have a scene where he's looking into the camera fiddling with his bowtie while saying, "Bowties are cool," it will be a total win.
Absolutely. Music and electronic books, as if they were still physical copies.
Size and weight are related. Bigger usually means heavier.Size also has an affect on readability. Consider your typical newspaper. It's much larger than any pad currently (or likely ever) made. Have you noticed that they don't print the body of their stories the full width of the page? It's because when you're done reading one line, your eye has to travel back to the beginning of the next line. When that distance is very long, we wind up hunting around for the next line,...
