I cannot understand why Apple is fighting this fight. For publishers? Against Amazon? Why would Apple care what price ebooks fall to? That’s Amazon’s problem. Apple makes money on the hardware, not the digital goods.

willich6 you make me laugh, Apple’s lunch is quite intact so your ridiculous statement just shows you’re a Droid fanboy. My question against the Feds is how could consumers have been hurt by any so-called price fixing, are there no other options for buying books?! If Joe Consumer didn’t like the e-book prices buy it in hard copy. Why aren’t they looking at gasoline price fixing?! This case only smells of a Lib witch-hunt and the only reason the publishers settled is that they don’t have deep pockets like Apple.

I sure hope that this issue doesn’t bring Apple’s stock even lower than it’s been going.
