Apple is definitely ascendant right now, but that doesn't mean they don't have problems. The Wall Street Journal (via TechEye) reports that Apple has not yet finished their price-negotiations with content providers. The Cupertino-based company wants low cost ($1) TV episodes on iTunes to help push their tablet.

The content creators are not happy with this proposed devaluation of their products. They also seem to be worried about the fact that Flash does not work on the iPad. Newspaper and magazine content for the iPad has also hit some hurdles. Those negotiations have been "backburner"-ed. Apple's E-Books are "on track", but that seems to be the only content they have nailed down.

As we get closer to the iPad launch, Apple's desperation will grow exponentially. The content providers seem to be betting on the fact that they can get a better deal if they hold on long enough. Time will show if they are correct.
