John Gruber:

“Putting the legality of Apple’s anti-steering rules aside, I think they make the company look spiteful and petty.”

It sometimes feels like there’s two Apples: the user-first Apple that makes delightful hardware, and the App Store Apple that’s cheap, nasty and willl nickel and dime you on everything.

That latter Apple is busy damaging the reputation of the company for surprisingly little return.
