Those of you who read TeleRead regularly probably noticed that our coverage was a little bit thin last week … but not to worry! I’ve got an alibi: I was in Las Vegas since last Sunday, covering the 2013 International CES for NAPCO—my employer, and TeleRead’s parent company. This [...]

Here’s an odd reversal. We’ve written a number of times about Apple pulling or rejecting apps from its store for fairly shaky reasons, but yesterday a story broke about Apple actually standing up for an app when the New York Times wanted it pulled down.
