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).

I have an iPhone and an iPad, but d*mmit Apple, these are my devices, and would like to have a button to the Kindle store in the Kindle app.

It just goes to show that in fact they are NOT your devices. Apple is simply leasing them to you.
