Apple Vs. Amazon. How Does This Affect Readers?

Here's an article from The Huffington Post, Apple Vs. Amazon: Apple Made Deals With Publishers, Amazon Pursues Literary Agents. An excerpt:

Apple and Amazon could be creating an interesting turf war over the future of books and whether eBook or print will be the primary launch format. Most major publishers have made deals with Apple for eBook content and have come to an agreement on pricing that may force Amazon to concede to higher prices for eBooks than their current insistence on $9.99.

Amazon, meanwhile, may be attempting to court the literary agents who represent authors, to snatch up eBook rights before the book is sold to a publisher.
