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).

Shameful

It really is a shame. I love my iPod Nano. The only sticking point so far is that I am [more or less] saddled to iTunes. The way Apple has been behaving lately I'm seriously going to have to reconsider buying any of their products. I've already boycotted Sony. I guess adding Apple to the mix won't hurt me too much.

You are not required to buy your music on iTunes to load it onto your iPod.

I'm well aware of that.

My two bits for what it's worth, I've been a long time fan of Cowon. Much better quality than Apple, my last from them is the iAudio J3. Major perk with Cowon is it'll play everything from mp3 to FLAC/OGG.
