I'd love to see Sony pull its *entire* music and video base out of iTunes over this, but they lack the corporate coherency to do so.
This latest twist may signal the end of that thinking. More likely, it will turn out to be a misunderstanding exploited for publicity by Sony. After all, if the Kindle app was dumped from the App Store, it would seriously piss off millions of iPhone and iPad owners who use it every day. Apple isn’t likely to do that. Is it?
You mean, like say, changing the function of the slider switch on the iPad, without asking anyone or warning them in advance? Nah, they couldn't possibly be that stupid.
