Amazon’s new strategy likely falls in the “unwise but not illegal” category. Consumers can — and likely will — make their displeasure known through market behavior, without the need for a regulator to help Amazon get the message. […] although Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer, its exclusion of Chromecast and Apple TV from its virtual shelves leaves consumers with many alternative channels for purchase. Interested consumers could purchase the products from other online retailers, brick-and-mortar retailers such as Best Buy, and, in the case of Apple, the company’s own Apple Stores. – Daniel Lyons, MarketWatch
