Good for Kindle and VUDU I say! This is the reason Apple wants it to be illegal to have any other tablets beside the iPad. They want to corner the market and then tax the hell out of every app and transaction.

Apple is doing s*** to bring me the content that is part of the kindle app (apart from the hardware which you already paid for) so there is no way they deserve 30% of the proceeds from the book sales inside the app.

You were always able to use a browser on iPad or iPhone to access this thing called "the internet". How is this different?

I circumvent the issue by omitting Apple hardware and software. :-D

Thanks to Android - they will not do that. If they start filtering web content, even apple funboys will not buy iPad, and switch to android.

It is ironic how Apple was pioneering HTML 5 (as oppose to flash) and got this :) I think it is great development and this may even force Apple to giveup in app purchases. I mean, why would not everyone, like newspapers, journals and such, follow the same model as Amazon?
