Antitrust suit alleging App Store monopoly tossed due to procedural blunder - Page 2

I could see developers having suffered if they have been blocked from selling apps but the same goes for indie game console development.

 

What is the cost of entry for someone to write and distribute in the App Store vs Nintendo, XBox, PlayStation, etc.  When that is factored in, how could anybody argue there is an issue with Apples method if distribution.

Yeah, but Apple's 30 percent cut of each sale inflates the price of the app. 1hmm.gif

Great logic. So let's ban Walmart, Amazon, Target, Macy's, and your local grocery store and car dealer. They all "inflate the price" of the goods you buy from them, too. 1oyvey.gif

No. Not really. Because again, the developer sets the price.

Um, this was meant as sarcasm. I'll try to remember to use the little "/s" next time so it's clear to everyone.
