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).

Sorry for the formatting, but OSnews hosed the nested quotes. They looked fine in the preview, and, in fact, I adjusted the line spacing to make everything neat and readable. But after submission, it italicized nested quotes rather than showing them as quotes.

I think you should be apologising for your juvenile personal attacks more than the formatting, but then maybe I wrongly mistook this playground for being a mature technology debate....

Don't get all uppity with me after your dripping sarcasm about the "bed-side lamp" being "ideal for [my] sort of problem." . You wanted to start with the childish attacks and now you're all pissy when you come out on the losing end. Get over it, wanker (as they say in your country).
