I have had this conversation many times

Mike explains it well. Apple has figured out how to continuously expand their income while avoiding true monopoly status. As this situation has unfolded it has been interesting to read the prognostication about the possible investigation into Apples practices. There are those who would like for it to end up forcing Apple to allow Flash, but it turns out that it is probably about Apples upcoming iAd program. My favorite comment under this article is by SubGenius, it sums the article well.

SubGenius says:
I don’t understand why people have such a problem with the iPhone OS.
Apple has created a simple dichotomy that keeps things really simple(which is a good thing).
1) Create a native app and play by their rules.
2) Create a web app – anything goes
3) Take your ball and go home
