Apple in-app purchases get the NMA animated treatment

Apple's level of extortion here (30% off the top) should not stand. The FTC needs to do more than slap them on the wrist, but rather needs to slap them upside the head - and hard. Jeez, it looks like Apple is becoming the new Microsloth. Sad. They were once a great company. Guess they are afraid of losing their revenue stream when Steve Jobs kicks the bucket.
