Japan unleashes regulation Kaiju on Apple's and Google's app store monopolies


Wishful thinking, not gonna happen

Both Apple & Google generally take a 30% cut from their marketplaces (15% for subscriptions and special cases).

App Store generated $1.1 TRILLION revenue in 2022, so that's roughly $300 billion for Apple...

How much of this do you think they are willing to spend on legal and other costs to fight this? I bet it's a lot.

OTOH, Play store only had $43.2 billion revenue in 2022, so less than 4% of App store.

Another proof we Android users are stingy :-)

Of course Apple and Google will never admit it's about money... They will claim security, privacy, etc. issues.
