Legal "In a decision that could reshape how books are sold on the Internet, a federal judge ruled that Apple conspired to raise the retail prices of e-books in violation of antitrust law, and called for a trial on damages. The decision by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan is a victory for the U.S. government and various states, which the judge said are entitled to injunctive relief." Yet another ruling confirming that virtually all technology companies are criminals. But don't worry, there's nothing wrong with how companies are run and the immense power they have, no sirree!

When it's not related or inconsistent with my world view it's just news. When it reinforces it, it's proof that those who disagree with me are idiots who are blind to evidence. Kill the straw man!

Or it is this little thing in journalism called - an editorial. These have been around for quite some time and involve the facts of a particular news worthy situation and then an editor(you know like Thom) makes a comment or two about it.


Back on topic, this ruling was as it should be given Apple's bullshit with e-books. Glad to see them lose this one big time.
