Apple Well, this is interesting, and, I must say, rather surprising: the New York Post is reporting that the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission are looking into launching an antitrust probe into Apple's policies. You'd expect this to be about iTunes, but that's just the thing: it's about the Adobe-Apple spat. Update: Since I'm not familiar with the entire US media landscape, I was unaware the New York Post is considered less than reputable. Still, Reuters has confirmed the Post's report, so maybe it's true after all.

Member since:

Apple is not selling a product that is a monopoly in any market or market segment
How about iPhone SDK? They had competitors and they just wish them out of business by changing the dev agreements... How is that not creating a monopoly? The simple fact that you, I, or the mass market consumer isn't interested in buying iPhone software toolkits doesn't mean that they aren't a real market that has (again, until Apple killed them) several competing forces. (Bah. I had to edit. I'm horrible about using the structure "Just because ..... doesn't mean that ....". It doesn't make any sense.)
