Well yes that would be good for apple, but to be honest this isn't of much interest to me.

I always felt that it was odd that people feel the need to post comments saying that the article content doesn't interest them. That's what the back button is for.

Well, a major emotion in the brain is curiosity. I came here and found nothing of interest but it was still worth reading. So apple might get something new and I tamed my curiosity. Win-win bro.

Ever consider the "interest" is being referred to the service that Fancy offers as opposed to his "interest" in the article?

If Apple bought it, then in all likelihood, it would only be offered on iProducts. But like the article says, the purchase is just speculation. Apple's not really at the stages of trying to kill Android at the moment anyways, they're just trying to wound one of it's biggest sellers

The Fancy takes a 10% cut. ITunes takes 30%+ right?

I rarely use this app, and it keeps spamming my inbox everyday. I was about to uninstall it anyway.
But what's your problem about me uninstalling Fancy?
I'm free to do what I want with my phone unlike you. =]
