Apple Could Face Antitrust Probe from DOJ, FTC

The New York Post cites a person familiar with the matter who says the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission are locked in negotiations over who will launch an antitrust inquiry into Apple's new policy. The two regulatory bodies are said to be days away from making a decision.

Bloomberg reports that the discussions were prompted by a complaint from Adobe, a company that is affected by the new policy and one that has been caught up in a bitter war of words with Apple of the last few weeks.

When contacted for comment by Bloomberg and the NYP, Apple, the Justice Department, and the FTC declined to comment.

    stupid Apple.

    I still can't believe they haven't been sued over the fact that their OS only comes with one web browser. They must feed money into the machine, they usually get away with too much, this is a step in the right direction :)
