At first I thought it was all a cruel April Fools joke but its not.
First Apple allows Netflix, a direct competitor to iTunes onto the iPad (and according to the Netflix blog the app is coming soon to the iPhone and iPod Touch). Now they let Amazon's Kindle app in (yes, I know it was already available on the iPhone but apple didn;t have the iBookstore back then either). Barnes and Noble are supposedly following with their app and Hulu is rumored to be trying out a subscription app for the iPad. ABC has all their shows available for streaming in HD on an app. None of this would have happened a year ago on the iPhone. Yet its all happening so quickly now.
Did hell freeze over when we weren't looking? What the heck is going on with Apple? It all just seems to good to be true.
