Google can blacklist a website if they find that it may have malware for small business/big business websites. Which I think is good to protect the users.http://finance.yahoo.com/news/google-s-dreaded--blacklist-174713360.html

Interesting how they would shut down a website with the intent and purpose to help consumers track down and purchase it's products.

That's my thoughts. It seems like anything that drives people to your product, and doesn't cost you a dime, would be a good thing.

They're more concerned about generating their revenue in-house, because it means better profits for them, as well as additional sales from accessories.

Plus, they "know their products better" - it's the same reason your carrier will probably end up telling you to have your service set up in their store. It just means more money for them.

They weren't a resaler though. They were directing people to apples stores that had stock. So it was a win for apple. That's my thing.

Apple's customer service is unmatched so having third parties ruin their flawless customer experience, Apple has every right to do so...

Exactly, yet the don't have a rising Stock price, nor do they have 426+ billion in the bank yet they know how to be an armchair chief executive officer +1
