DOJ sues Apple 🚨🚨🚨

Blockbuster lawsuit is biggest challenge to Apple ever.

It's the biggest challenge to Apple's reach and power to date.

If successful, it could profoundly change the way Apple makes its products.

However, the lawsuit will likely take years to wind through the courts. Plus, it contains some real head-scratchers, like demanding that Apple allow streaming apps (which it already does) as well as unspecified “Super Apps” (like China’s WeChat, which, again, Apple already does with multifunction apps like Facebook).

One more thing ...

You know, there’s a porn store for Android. You can download nothing but porn. You can download porn, your kids can download porn. That’s a place we don’t want to go, so we’re not going to go there.
