It’s not censorship but it sure stinks

Holly Lisle recently posted about trying to get a book published for Apple’s iBooks, but was rebuffed because she mentions Amazon in one of her teaching methods. I don’t know about you but that just ain’t right. While it may not be censorship by definition, it’s not cool, and Apple is using its power to block any mention of a rival. Holly pulled all of her self-pubbed books out of iBooks. I have never been all-in with Apple, but I like most of their products. I have an iPod, and iPhone and an iPad, and they work pretty damned well, but this behavior stinks and I wanted anyone who reads this blog to know about it.
