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).

It only goes to show how dark the computing age would be if Apple would be in charge.

I like their products. MacOS X (NextStep actually) is a very nice operating system.

But if I look at how Apple behaves, I am glad it doesn't own that much products in the IT world.
