Wow, I continue to be more and more glad I didn't jump on the iPhone bandwagon. I bought and paid for my phone, and prefer to make my own decisions on what apps to run on it, not be dictated to by the manufacturer's Gestapo tactics!

Apple Inc has blocked rival Sony Corp's electronic book application from the iPhone because it would have circumvented Apple's system for buying content.

Sony's app, which is linked to Sony's e-book reader, would have allowed people to read books bought through Sony's store.

Apple ... wanted to ensure that customers could buy books using its payment method, known as "in-app purchase," which provides Apple with a 30 percent cut of sales.
