  • 'There are now two Americas. My country is a horror show' from The Wire creator, David Simon.

Essentially amazon re-used the same model in both (where the publisher recommends a price but the seller decides it ultimately), and Apple colluded with the big publishers to switch it to another model: where the price can be determined by the publisher up front, and the seller just gets a flat 30% cut.
