Comment Re:Dear Amazon (Score 1) 222

Amazon already has a great video app for iOS and they update it frequently. They recently updated it to support downloading and offline viewing of Prime content. Their stance on selling the AppleTV makes no sense. It would be absurd fr them not to make an app for the new AppleTV and the even with current models, airplay works great.

It also goes against a core cultural direction the Bezos described years ago. Amazon keeps retail, content and hardware businesses all separate. It is why kindle books are available on every platform you can think of. It is why Amazon video is also available on all those platforms. This decision makes no sense and probably won't last long.

What is it that you think Apple has done here? They sent a free developer unit to a company. The company agreed to an NDA as a condition of receiving the unit. The company disassembled the free unit and posted pictures of it on the Internet. Apple enforced the contract the company agreed to.

What part of that is gold for an anti-trust case?

They didn't but the unit, Apple gave it to them. It is not for sale yet. When iFixit entered the lottery to get a unit, they agreed to a very explicit NDA. Apple is clearly in the right here. It is bizarre that there a some people so damn lazy they can't read the summary and understand what it is they are responding to.

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
