Apple At the Core of Another Federal Investigation?

First, there were allegations that Apple and a host of other tech companies were colluding to prevent competitors from poaching each others workforce, so-called poaching of the payroll. That spawned a Justice Department investigation.

Then, it was board of directors overlap, with Google CEO Eric Schmidt sitting on both Apple's board and his own company's. That spawned a Federal Trade Commission investigation.

Then, Apple's decision to delay -- or deny, depending upon whom you talk to -- the Google Voice app from its popular App Store spawned a Federal Communications Commission investigation.

Now, we get word that US Trade Office officials are involved in some kind of investigation connected to flash memory, Apple, Sony , Samsung, Dell and others.

The story is too old to be commented.

Apple would ban an App created by one of their main competitors.
That's common sense. It's like Sony publishing a Microsoft game on the PSN.
It's just not going to happen.

Or Microsoft being forced to supply it's customers with competitive Search Engines.

@1: That's kind of behavior is the same thing Microsoft and many other countries have been sued over. They try to control the industry to their advantage. Brings on an Anti-Trust lawsuit.
