Guys, while the past is a nice comparative, the present is more telling. Apple is arguably the most valuable company right now. I have outlandishly stated how Apple could BUY a large chunk of the gaming industry if they wanted, also with board/investor approval I'd gather.

Apple is a threat to any industry that it's in, in the sense that they are now the new MS, greedy, volatile and strict.

Knowing apple they'd probably force more proprietary formats onto the end users.
