Just read a timeline released by the Department of Justice over the court case regarding Apple's alleged collusion with publishers to fix ebook prices in a war waged against Amazon. Fascinating stuff. How anyone could possibly argue this isn't collusion is beyond me, but we'll see how it plays out.

In any case, I'd really hate to be Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue.

Here's the timeline.

What do you think? Will Apple be made to suffer for this, or will they pay their fine and gallop off into the sunset? And what have we really learned about all this?
