Submission + - FCC May Regulate iPhone App Store (

jcenters writes: In a sit-down interview with the Los Angeles Times, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowsi discusses everything from net neutrality to applying decency rules to new mediums. However, the most interesting revelation came when asked if the FCC is planning to tell Apple what it can and cannot block from its App Store.

"We'll tackle the authority issues when we get to that point. It's one of those things that we're looking at and we're going to think about, in a thorough way," Genachowski said.

That's a far cry from ‘no.’
