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).

What Apple did do, is anticipate that these products could be made for X amount of dollars before any other company even looked at it.

It almost looks like Apple already had their products ready before they could be produced.

That is why it feels (or felt like) the rest is playing catch up.
