Let's see what he has to say a year from now when his first batch of chromebooks have been destroyed by the students simply by typing on them. 
"Apple TV is seeing stiff competition from cheap hardware that offers similar functionality for a fraction of the cost." Most TVs come with "similar functionality" so the need for those cheap sticks really can't be justified. AppleTV provides a lot more for Mac users, even in its "limited functionality" (as far as some people proclaim), than those sticks or the built-in capabilities of TVs. I use it to stream movies and TV shows I've purchased both from my Mac and from...
TouchID works nice on my AMEX. Once you set it up it just works!   Now if it would just pay my bill for me without using my money I'd be happy.
I agree that everyone should be paid a reasonable amount of money for the work they do. Of course, many think their work is worth a whole lot more than other's so while they should be paid a ton, they should be able to get what they want for free.  As for publishing your own book, why not just take a stand and publish your book on the site you want to, then watch to see if Google scans it for free and gives it away. Then you can go after them. Also wait for someone to copy...
Read CNBC said someone meant to sell 6500 shares and instead sold 6.5 million. If true, I wonder which company is going to be shut down and whether the SEC will do anything about it. It's scary how quickly a fortune can be lost when computers are involved in the trading, especially when someone on too much caffeine is typing too quickly. AAPL still feeling the effects today. I also read an article about all the bears being paid off by that drop. Makes one suspicious of...
I'm getting tired of all the monopolistic products Apple is involved in yet nothing has ever been done about Amazon. At least the EU is going after Google and its search monopoly. Where is the class action lawsuit against these two companies? Can't find a judge who would handle it? That says a lot about our corrupt judicial system.
Control a chromebook? You can manage an iPad very easily and securely but nothing Google/Android sells is controllable. Of course, I would like to know the background of those IT people. If the IT people feel they will be able to patch and update the chromebooks, good luck to them. Find the article that talked about all those cheap tablets coming preinstalled with malware. This is the environment all non-Apple and -Microsoft (ugh I actually gave Microsoft a compliment)...
"...caused iPod prices to be higher than they otherwise would have been." Sounds like someone was rubbing the crystal ball or trying to apply 19th century economics to 21st century products. When will these people and lawyers just give up on this fiasco. Apple was doing what every other product manufacturer has done, they were protecting their investments. Apple developed the iPod and iTunes music store. We could always add our own ripped music to the iPod so nobody was...
Do they sell ads or do they sell ad space? I know they sell email information to companies/people who want to place ads. 
This is the problem with the stock market. They calculate a company's market cap taking the outstanding shares by the cost (not value) of each share. Simple math but it really doesn't have anything to do with the actual value of a company, only its shares. The stock market doesn't have anything to do with the value of any company, it's completely a separate gambling institution. The bigger problem, however, is that the entire world's financial livelihood is based on this...
