Publishers, not Apple, constitute the monopoly

The publishers, when colluding on price, amount to a monopoly; had they worked independently, there would have been no issue. Apple, as the vehicle for or instigator of that collusion, has an auxiliary role; still, leading others to collude illegally is not legal, either. Nevertheless, I expect the worst that happens to Apple is they lose several million dollars the right to enforce the "most-favored-nation" clauses in their contracts with publishers. However, it maybe that publishers are forbidden from using agency models, which kills Apple's bookstore business model.

Fat margins squeeze Apple against Android

Thumb Down

Apple is untouchable, no pun intended

Sure, Apple will have to start selling devices with iOS at close to break-even prices in just a 2-5 years. That would leave it with merely 30% of ALL revenue in the market for iOS apps. That is perhaps 3x better than where Amazon starts today with the Kindle Fire, and likewise for M$ and other Android manufacturers. Everyone else is just playing to stay in business, not to succeed in this time frame. Apple just needs to ensure there is no killer app for android that is not on iOS. Especially given they can nearly buy Amazon or Sony (4x over) with cash on hand. In the meantime, they just adjust the dials to profit maximization.

COMET WILL DEFINITELY NOT HIT EARTH – NASA

REGISTER IN GRAVITATIONAL GENERATOR AUTOMOBILE COVER UP

You INTENTIONALLY omitted this, from NASA's FAQ

"So you've got a modest-sized icy dirtball that is getting no closer than 35 million kilometers (about 22 million miles)" said Yeomans. "It will have an immeasurably minuscule influence on our planet. By comparison, my subcompact automobile exerts a greater influence on the ocean's tides than comet Elenin ever will."

That's HIS subcompact car, which he does not deny may be some DARPA developed doomsday tidal force and conspiracy theory generating subcompact. Now we understand the bailout of General Motors and Obama's directions to emphasize smaller cars. We're talking about a subcompact car that generates more tidal forces than one of the most worrying comets in decades!

Maybe it is a Comet itself! Or a GALAXY!?!?! Or a Fit.

Go to the pub, have a pint, and reflect on your professionalism.

Vote now for the juiciest LOHAN backronym

disappointing choices.

This should give you good liability cover, has the virtue of modesty, and makes a bow to Computer Science.

LOHAN's Only a Helium Assisted Nanoplane

or, nearly evanescing entirely

LOHAN's Only a Hardly Adequate Name
