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).

The whole thing is a little like Microsoft demanding a cut for every spreadsheet I save in Excel or report I typed in Word.


But if those are the terms & conditions for using Excel, then you have to adhere to those terms & conditions if you wish to use Excel.
