Apple and Lala.com - Apple is a big company => can do what they want
Authored by: TiddlyPom on Sunday, January 20 2013 @ 05:15 AM EST
Apple seem to subscribe to the "might is right" philosophy (as per Ragnar Redbeard or Heinlein - "Starship Troopers"). It is OK to force a competitor out of business (i.e. Lala) because, hey, they are smaller and we need to preserve our (gigantic) market share!

And both companies act like bullies

Which tends to tarnish their reputation. Apple's reputation is still good
enough to take it. Microsoft, well...

Duopoly? Perhaps a better term is needed
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, January 21 2013 @ 12:54 PM EST

Last I checked, Linux was not a Monopoly (even in weighting) on pc-type devices.

Granted, Android has done really well and has Linux at it's heart. But I'm not sure Android would be considered a Monopoly under the Law even isolated to the smartphone market.
