Let us not forget that nobody forces them to use Apple App Store if 
they are not willing to accept Apple's conditions. They can continue 
selling as they have been so far. This is quite different from the 
iOS App Store where it is practically the only selling venue. For 
some companies with limited marketing reach, 30% cut may well be 
worth it. Adjustments of this deal will surely follow as marketing 
forces and loud people have their play, as Richard predicted.
