So Much For Insanely Great

Apple has always been about profit margin, but it used to be the case that they were also all about the user experience. Now that they are enforcing the "no link to outside stores" rule, they are all about a worse customer experience.

Someone ask Jobs this: do you really think that the extra margin you'll get from this rule will outweigh the irritation experienced by end users who suddenly have a less useful device with crappier features?

Why hasn't there been an antitrust lawsuit over this yet? That 30% commission on sales from the app must be all but impossible for most online sellers to swallow.

Because you don't have to buy an iPhone. There's Android, and to a lesser extent, RIM and Windows.
