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).

TBH, he was just pointing out the work around was soo fucking easy that Thom had blown it out of proportion ...

And good thing that Apple fanboys aren't known for harping on about minor usability differences, otherwise the comment would have been hypocritical to boot.

Yay ... anyone who makes anti apple comments gets voted up for shit like "Apple is twisted" ... however someone does a little sarcasm and makes light of it and they get down modded to hell.

Or maybe it got modded down because it was an obvious cop-out by a well-known fanboy, trying to ridicule & dismiss a criticism of Apple (rather than actually address it). And given how fond iFanboys are of that tactic, it could practically be a dictionary definition.

Group think ...

Yes, it certainly is... the delusions/fantasies of persecution that iFanboys are prone to, that is.
