Editorial Every few years we geeks have our own kind of popcorn show to watch: tech companies showing teeth to one another. This time around, it's Palm vs Apple. In all seriousness though, how ethical is the battle around iTunes?

Your definition of a monopoly is incorrect by the same token one could argue that Microsoft has no monopoly because everyone can create an alternative OS.

In my view, Apple has a monopoly on song player device (iPod) and on song digital purchase (iTune), which is fine in itself but which create restriction on what they can do or not do: preventing other song player device to access iTune would be fine if they didn't have a monopole but as they one, it's illegal IMHO.
