Their German operations claimed to have a loss, thus avoiding German taxes.
Here’s how it works according to testimony and documents submitted by Apple and other sources during Senate hearings, and as reported by the Washington Post::"Apple Operations International is registered in Cork, Ireland, but has “no physical presence at that or any other address,” according to the report. Indeed, the corporate entity has existed for 30 years and apparently never had a single employee. Of the three people on its board, all Apple employees, two live in...
Germany would be a poor example. By creative use of tax laws and special agreements with the Irish government Apple's German operations were able to show a loss, thus paying little to nothing in taxes for income derived from German citizens.

At it's essence wouldn't the Apple Watch itself be an expensive iBeacon? Not what I was originally referring to of course..
Very nice write-up Soli. The first time I've seen it explained so clearly.EDIT: That brings up one question, and you probably know the answer. I remember some mention during an Apple interview of iBeacons, Bluetooth/NFC and the Apple Watch but can't remember the exact context.

Will iBeacon have any uses with Apple Pay?
