    I'm not sure Apple has anything since Amazon made up a noun "Appstore" before they thought of it. :D

    i would like to know this as well. i have seen that the free angry birds rio game that comes with the amazon app store is unplayable if you remove the amazon store after you download rio. luckily enough, people have already cracked it ;)

    Yea interesting article, but i still don't think it's going to effect the apple app store. I mean even if the term is "mixed" into a wider category of phones in the end, if you have an apple device you're going to go the the apple app store. It's not like apple users are going to have a different app experience. Unlike android, they don't get choices on where to shop :)

    What a load of crap from Apple. I'd like to dump a truck full of manure in front of Steve Jobs front door. Their business practices are obscenely greedy.

    I'll never buy an Apple product.

    I'd like to stuff those Lawyers @Apple into a room full of hunger alligators. Let's see them try to sue their way out of that one. :)

    This just in from Reuters: "Appellate judge Hugh Jass after reviewing Apple's claim of copyright infringement on Amazon's Android appstore. "After reviewing both parties' list of applications and customer reviews it is my finding that the majority of actual real world useful apps belongs to Android and their subsidiary in this case, Amazon. From this point on Apple's consortium of "smart"phone applications shall be known as Crappstore." Reporting from Seattle this is Peter Buck.
