Apple Subscription Model - eBook Killer?
I've been reading about the new Apple subscription deal - the one where Apple requires all publishers (newspapers, magazines, books) to sell from within their app, at which point Apple takes a 30% cut on the sale.
What this seems to me to be aimed at is to drive ebooks off the iPhone/iPad platform, leaving iBooks as the dominant commercial ebook store in the Apple ecosystem.
Am I missing something here?
