And just like that, the great Apple and Amazon "app store" legal tousle ended. Today, Apple was granted its request to dismiss the suit it filed back in 2011 to prevent Amazon from using the app store moniker for its Android software market. Part and parcel with the dismissal, Apple also gave Amazon a covenant not to sue, assuring Bezos and company won't have to run this particular legal gauntlet again.
