Tells a Danish publisher he can’t sell a magazine about Google’s OS in Apple’s App Store
Tuesday seems to have been Apple’s (AAPL) day for saying “No.”
First Apple Legal ordered the Chinese manufacturer of a Steve Jobs look-alike doll to stop making the popular action figure.
Then a representative from developer relations informed the CEO of Mediaprovider, a small magazine publisher based in Denmark, that he couldn’t put a magazine about Google’s (GOOG) Android on the App Store.
According to Mediaprovider’s Brian Dixon, the exchange went like this:
The bi-monthly publication — the Android counterpart to an iPhone magazine Dixon began putting out earlier this year — launched Nov. 11.
“It’s funny really because I don’t think we would sell many magazines on Android through Apple App Store,” Dixon told Media Watch. “But the question is where this is going.”
Apple has not responded to a request for comment.
