Apple is going too far

I've been a big supporter of the iPhone. It really was the first phone to get the UI right for a small, mobile computer (that is also a phone). They have done some things slow or wrong, but all in all the direction has been right and the market has proven this.  But, their strong arm tactics are getting a bit out of hand in terms of what apps they are allowing or not allowing on the platform.  It is starting to be less about "usability" and "user experience" and more about plain censorship. The Scratch and Fiore cartoon app decisions are problematic for me and I think Apple is really making a big mistake. I'm really with Amy Bruckman on this. What do you think?
