I guess this means Apple is playing pretty hardball, giving Amazon some room to move. Competition is all good for us!
0% is massive market share of books? Oh, you could count the books-as-apps for the iPhone.
From Apple's point of view, it has nothing to lose and everything to gain. From Amazon's point of view, if it can use Apple's business strategy against Apple then Apple will be less of a threat.
Each company is trying to change the rules of the game to favor their own position.
