The temperature seems to be rising for Apple

Another investigation into its Store. By the Germans, no less. They tend very much to not appreciate bullshit. They are also sticklers for the law. Apple would do well to not be found guilty of intentional wall-raising.

I wonder if the Bundeskartellamt is going to find that Apple has systematically killed any app that reproduces functionality of its own apps, not to mention when Apple sees a useful app, steals its functionality then bans it because it reproduces "existing" functionality.

This is going to be interesting, aka probably painful for Apple.
