    Apple Making a Mistake?

    Let's hope that what is reported in the article does not come to fruition.

    Apple Rejects Sony Reader App Over In-App Purchases. Kindle Next? | Epicenter| Wired.com

    I think this was a big mistake, and if the Kindle app goes, would be a huge mistake for Apple.

    With the onslaught of Android tabs about to come out, Apple needs all the advantage it can it.

    Apple has responded, so I hear. I can't find a link to Apple's actual response, but this is what is going around.

    Apple responds to Sony in-app purchase report

    So, false alarm, probably.

    Same story, http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/01/te...y/01apple.html I get my eBooks from Kobo if Apple pulls this off I could not care less if they get a 256Gig HD model the same price I will go with Android.

    Internet is a fantastic medium because news travels instantly. Why is it that so many people read something and accept that it is a correct statement. In this case it appears the original information was partially correct. The point is wait until information is verified and or other parties respond which in this case is Apple.

    One the dust settles we will close this thread

    Lol it's not the end of civilisation. A lot of unnecessary FUD in the press. Guess they really resent being wrong over the iPad.

    Was reading a book in calibre via splashtop this afternoon so assume it will be possible in other formats as well.
    Still prefer the feel of a real book in my hands though. Too many years of conditioning.

    I used to think this way, but I've changed my mind. I think I'm missing out on all the fun.

    From now on I am going to immediately take the offending device and throw it in the trash. Then I''m going go on my blog and write a three page piece trashing the device, the company, and swear to never use their product or name (without taking it in vain) again.

    Of course the trash can will be foam padded to prevent possible damage, placed in a computer save environment, and well away from where anyone might accidentally send it to the garbage collector. The blog will, of course, be anonymous, not allow comments, trackbacks, or actual posts.

    After all, retracting and backtracking on what you said isn't nearly as much fun.

    Oh come on. People speculate on things, it is human nature. We like to talk about the good things, like what the iPad 2 has is store and we like to talk about things that impact us in a negative way as well. That is all part of the fun. If Apple didn't always keep everything so quiet perhaps things like this wouldn't happen so often. In the end it is all conversation which I thought was the purpose of forums in general.

    **Edit: And just to clarify, Apple indeed has responded already which is part of the reason people are talking about this. **

    Maybe, maybe not. The 30% cut is what might scare a few providers off. Or cause an increase in the price of the books.

    I see this as a possible power play between Apple and Amazon.

    If I was Amazon, I would call their bluff. Pull my app. And what as people throw a fit. Apple just does not have iBooks ready to compete with Amazon. And with the Kindle an Android ready to fill the void, this could backfire on Apple

    My two cents, for what they are worth.

    Given the number of people that obviously complained to Apple about the removal of the screen orientation lock switch, I can't even imagine the impact from something as major as this... if it is true!

    Admittedly, I poke some fun at the people who were upset and even mortified over the screen orientation lock switch issue, but this would absolutely be a deal breaker for me if my only choice of electronic publication content providers was only Apple. The reason I wanted in iPad in the first place was so that I could read on a larger format than my iPod Touch.
