quote: Asked if Apple (or Amazon) customers complained about the higher prices, he commented, "They may or may not have, I can't recall."
quote: A prohibition on "most favored nation" (MFN) deals which incentivize publishers from ditching the competition
quote: if a firm has no antitrust duty to deal with its competitors at wholesale, it certainly has no duty to deal under terms and conditions that the rivals find commercially advantageous
quote: Apple is under no duty to tell developers and publishers what they can create and distribute, or to tell iOS users what kind of content they can install upon the devices which they own or where they can get that content from. Nevertheless, Apple has taken it upon itself to review and approve all content and to block access to any content that Apple cannot directly profit from to ensure that Apple can make as much money for itself as possible. We allow all users who own an Apple device to purchase only those apps that are profitable to us. We also permit consumers to give us as much money as we can squeeze out of them, because that's what anyone "smart" enough to buy an Apple product deserves; the opportunity to continue paying us in order to use something that they already own.Bend over and take it. You know you love it.
