Why, yes, Apple *is* that evil!

This article didn't surprise me, because I've known about Apple's chicanery for some time now, but as both an e-book author and e-book consumer, it pisses me off. I hope the DOJ bends them over and gives them a thorough proctological exam.

Basically, Apple is accused (although "accused" is a weak term, since there's widespread agreement that the deals were made) of fixing prices with the major publishers to break the $9.99 price point that Amazon had offered for its e-books. If you've bought an e-book lately, Apple is why you've had to pay > $10 for it, even from the Kindle store.

The new CEO can shove the new iPad up his ass sideways, as far as I'm concerned.
