Apple Petty Apple is petty. Amazon, Kobo, and others have changed their applications to conform to Apple's App Store rules, and if there's one word that describes the situation these booksellers are in, it's petty. Still, it's leading to good things: Kobo has announced it's going to bypass the App Store by writing an HTML5 e-reader for iOS (and thus, for other HTML5-capable mobile devices).

1. Dangle sparlkley items in front of customers.
2. Abuse customers.
3. Own the market

It's sounds wierd, but it seems to work. Unfortunately, prior art from the U.S. colonization may invalidate the patent.
