Before reading that Apple goons were banning all Wiley-published books from Apple Stores, I doubt I would have had any interest in reading
this book. But after reading the following, I placed an order for
one at Amazon.com.
Wiley & Sons, a leading publisher of technology books, said Apple
Computer has removed all its titles from the shelves of Apple stores in
apparent retaliation for the upcoming publication of a biography of
Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Here’s my guess at what really happened: The word went
down from on-high for Apple Stores not to carry the biography, but
somehow that was translated at the store level into an edict to remove
all Wiley books. However, I could be wrong. As Apple legal goons seem
to repeatedly display, Apple is very capable of such a clueless misstep.
