Could these be shots of a new Spotify app for the iPad? Many an iPad owner (myself included) will be hoping that they do. Currently Spotify users have to make do with a blown up version of the iPhone app on their iPads so the real deal is eagerly anticipated. The shots here seem to show an app that bears more than a passing resemblance to Twitter's iPad app, which is no bad thing to be fair. Take a look at the pictures folks; imagine what might be, and hope that it is. Oh by the way, the reason the pictures look the way they do is because they come from that mill of tech rumour ... Instagram!

The American Department of Justice recently filed a lawsuit against Aple and various publishers, accusing them of colluding to fix the price of the ebooks they were selling. Apple has now responded to these accusations and it's response is actually pretty brilliant when you look at. Apple's counsel has stated that far from seeking to dominate the market through price fixing Aple has been working with publishers to strike a blow at Amazon's near monopoly on the ebook market. In other words Apple are saying that they are fighting the good fight. Apple's statement read:
The DOJ's accusation of collusion against Apple is simply not true. The launch of the iBookstore in 2010 fostered innovation and competition, breaking Amazon's monopolistic grip on the publishing industry.
Apple further claim that when the iBookstore first launched Amazon was enjoying a near 90% share of the ebook market. With the arrival of Apple into that space that figure, Apple claims, has fallen as low as 60%. "Since then customers have benefited from eBooks that are more interactive and engaging" Apple said. Note that there is no mention of lower prices there though and for good reason because Apple mentions that topic with a quote that looks to set the pace for the forthcoming legal dispute: "Just as we've allowed developers to set prices on the App Store, publishers set prices on the iBookstore". That's an important right there folks because it looks as if Apple are setting up their position as one, in which they are merely the conduit for the content and it is the publishers that are dealing with such dirty things as money and pricing.
