Has Apple made a mistake? Of course they have. Can they rectify it? Of course. Will they rectify it? Certainly not. This is just a minor hiccup in the ongoing struggle of a company with a changing media landscape. Remember: the Internet is the most democratic medium of all. Think different about that fact for a while.
