I have to really thank Apple for something.
The company instituted restrictive–and some would say anticompetitive–rules against Amazon and other e-booksellers. It was give up 30 percent of proceeds or get out of the iOS App Store. They got out of selling books within their iOS apps by way of external links.
But today, Amazon responded by releasing a terrific HTML5 app that's every bit as good for buying and reading ebooks (www.amazon.com/cloudreader). And, whoa, it works on Chrome OS, so now I can read Kindle books on my Chromebook. Fantastic!
Thank you Apple for screwing your partners–eh, ebook competitors.
