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).

This is SO hard

Wow, as an iPhone user I am so frustrated. This is SOOO hard. I have to use a web browser (Safari, Firefox, iCab/whatever I have installed on my iPhone) to buy a book on the Kindle/Nook/whatever website, and then when I launch my Kindle/Nook/whatever application that book is magically there so I can read it. Wow! That was so hard to do! I feel so hobbled and my apps are so crippled that they just almost do not function at all any more. The iPhone is going DOWN because of this, I just know it.

Good grief, people, when I woke up this morning the planet was still turning, despite this horrible thing happening. Amazing.
