Apple "Apple is further tightening its control of the App Store. Some application developers, including Sony, say Apple has told them they can no longer sell e-books within their apps unless the transactions go through Apple’s system. Apple rejected Sony's iPhone application, which would have let people buy and read e-books from the Sony Reader Store."

"These people are fascists dressed as Walt Disney 1955. And people think its 'cool' and about preserving the user experience! Amazing.


They're basically admitting Apple is incapable of creating a good user experience without locking everything down, without controlling everything.

Just about every other industry seems to get by just fine without with such total control.
"

That's simply BS. TH......Arguably the fragmentation of the Android universe isn't a swell experience for many of the users I rub shoulders with. It's finding the right balance of control and freedom.
