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).

fmaxwell,

Clearly an ereader isn't for you, that's fine. But there's no sense in denying the strengths it has over other tablets including the ipad.

If apple sold an e-ink tablet, chances are you would immediately change your tune just because apple was behind it. I'm getting really tired of this kind of behavior, where people are overly proud of their favorite companies and fail to think objectively, though I suppose it is human nature.
