So much for digital subscriptions

The pitfalls of analog distribution mentality vs. digital distribution mentality. Maybe distribute/sell the app through iTunes and mange subscription services from within the app? Without a subscription, you only get minimal free material. I don't think that Apple really wants to get into various subscription management scenarios. They simply want a cut of the proceeds. Is Apple becoming too greedy here (or are they just showing the control freak tradition)?
