They could compete - I think that they made a mistake not supporting Amazon Prime, Roku would be a lot less popular if they had done it, and Amazon probably wouldn't have bothered with their own box.I don't see the point of supporting Netflix and not supporting Amazon Prime - block both if you are worried about cannibalizing iTunes, or allow both, but don't just allow one of them.
Yawn - they are not competing with Apple, but with Roku.   People buy the AppleTV to steam iTunes and/or Netflix, they buy the Roku to stream Netflix and/or Amazon prime.   The overlap of a new Amazon box will mainly be with the Roku.
Domestic corporate taxes are the basis for our lack (-ish) of corruption in income taxes.   What happens is that corporations need deductions, so that they have to accurately report all of the wages that they pay out (since otherwise they would have to pay tax on that wage money paid out).  Because of corporate taxes, the government gets accurate data on W-2s, and there is almost no income tax fraud.  Similarly, companies have to report the money that they pay to other...
 Sounds like a great idea, and we should withdraw all our troops from Europe also.All Apple needs to do is move its headquarters offshore, trade all its public shares for ADRs, and make "Apple US" a subsidiary of "Apple World".  The current US tax policy will end up causing most companies to do stuff like this eventually.
Why does the US deserve a cut?  The overseas money is from foreign people buying things made by other foreign people on foreign soil.The only other country with a tax like this is Estonia, the US just needs to stop trying to tax foreign profits.
You realize he is up a billion dollars or so on his Apple investment...
Is there any place that you can buy chassis mount lightning connectors?  Also, is there a specification somewhere on how you extract the digital signal from the connector? I'd like to build my own DIY lightning d/a converter, if that is possible, using a kandkaudio.com kit and maybe a disassembled lightning to 30 pin adapter.
Then Apple blocked Grindr in Russia because they hate gays personally?http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/02/05/gay_hook_up_app_russia_block/Being gay itself may not be illegal in Russia, but a search for "Russian anti-gay laws" returns a lot of results.http://www.thewrap.com/stephen-colbert-russia-anti-gay-laws-youd-expect-putin-cover-manholes-video/ 
They do on iPad, once you count the fact that the "white box" tablets are probably just an IDC marketing ploy.  iPads are replacing the entire PC market, really I see Apple as being in a stronger position than Microsoft was back when.Microsoft is in a terrible spot since the PC market is dying.   Google is in a terrible spot since the PC market is dying, and Samsung and Apple have the opportunity to grab all of the mobile advertising revenue and cut Google off at the...
I said this:And you followed up with this: When you said "Apple is protecting themselves" in that context, the only possible meaning is "protection from competition".
