Can you imagine... its like being on the Comedy Channel with these bunch of KooKs... Oh wait, it will probably go to the Supreme court and then Apple will get away with the ebooks also.
Wait, what?!? Please tell me you are being sarcastic here. "Get away with [it]" suggests that they have been found guilty. That just isn't the case. Also, based on all of the emails that I have seen, I am hard pressed to see where the colluding is happening. Also, you suggest that Apple was wrong about the whole taxes thing. Like I said before, they should pay more, but that is my opinion. The tax laws, however, say they only have to pay the amount they paid (approx. 6 billion dollars). So realistically, Apple wasn't at fault about that, the tax laws are.
Now, back on topic. My largest concern is the judge gave their opinion very publicly about the way the case could go. This is like saying that contestant A on a game show will win (or lose), and I am the person who gets to decide that. Guess what, I will make it happen that way, because I am human and I don't like to be wrong. And I consider myself to be a person of high character and can admit when I am wrong. Without meaning to sound like an egotistical asshat, I am betting that this Judge doesn't have superior character compared to me. So, more than likely, she has just declared which way she is going to rule. As such, that is bias and she should be removed.
