I must say that I am happy with the DOJ lately: the action on G + Y, the quick reaction to Buzz (was there one, or am I making up news now) and now Apple.
Apple definitely needs to get a visit from the DOJ people, because they are pushing the limits of their wall way higher than anyone should.
I disagree with the "Apple is not a monopoly yet" argument and I like these quick actions by the DOJ, because M$ is the best example of what happens when you wait for the monopoly to form and prosecute only then:
* Competition killed (Netscape)
* 15 years latter we are stuck with a) horrible browser, b) horrible OS, c) horrible Office apps.
Today, because of the inaction of the DOJ in the 90ies, we're paying a hefty economic price. Again, just last week, my parent's 1 year old new HP laptop with Vista started crashing its disk. It's a 1 year old machine, and the HD is being read non-stop, I can only guess it's Vista.
