Surprise, Apple changed their license terms-- again.

I suspect Kindle will have to be dropped from the iPad and iPhone. I'm
sure Amazon doesn't have 30% in royalties to cough up to Apple for
books sold. Talk is there's a chance Netflix and Hulu and a host of
others will have to also.

Too bad Stevie just can't play nice with the rest of the world... And
there's already talk in the WSJ about justice department action. My
guess is just like the last time, after much hollering a screaming,
Apple will change it's mind and backpedal. Someday, probably sooner
than later, Jobs won't be in charge anymore, and we won't have to put
up with his constant fiddling with the iOS license-- though I suspect
we'll also miss some insanely great products-- and their launches.

Oh well.
