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).

And yet it's modded up to +9, go figure.

So delusions of persecution propped up by confirmation bias, then.

Only if you define "well written bit of sarcasm" as paint-by-numbers Strawman arguments combined with lazy, obvious attempts to dodge the point.
