How exactly is apple attempting to define a distinction between content that isn't and is code?  What is the difference, as they are trying to argue, between a page of text, a frame of video, a passage of recorded music, and executable code?  Any such distinction would have to be arbitrary at best.

Steve has fully and completely jumped headlong into the public fire pit this time.  Wow, he must really hate Adobe!  Willing to kill his own company (again) in defense of his own ego and frustrations with others.  There is something to be said for the adage that states that entrepreneurs make terrible CEO's.  10 years ago, apple was a startup again.  Steve came back to play entrepreneur.  Not it is a global company again.  Will they let him ruin it again?  Then hire him back as cowboy again?
