Yes, opt-in is the right way to go but when shove comes to push, it is all about the money. Ubuntu needs it far more than Apple so for them, they really need you to opt in to survive.
And that is why Google ads make money.Apple currently is a 'luxury brand' so if they want to stay relevant outside the US whilst keeping their stonking profits then this income stream really matters. Sneakyness works too I bet.
Nah, Apple don't sell iAds, honest gov.
Both Spotlight and Microsoft Bing Live search on Windows catalogues your device to gain an advantage over Google. I expect that the more data they have on you the more relevant the search and thus selling iAds etc gets more lucrative. There is certainly no such thing as a free lunch, even with a premium cost device. Though the customer always seems part of that lunch menu.
But Apple plays the hobo shoving most their money into the ever so dodgy 'no fixed abode' status.
No, the Irish declared income is small. APple are using a Dutch Irish trick so most of their income has zero corporate tax. That means they paid zero UK and German tax instead of 21% and 30% respectively. It would be sensible for the EU to more than claw this back on behalf of the countries concerned.
'Apple rode to riches totaling $137.7bn in offshore cash with the help of the Irish taxpayer'. You do get the feel that the lucky Apple Irish deal shat on the whole economy of Europe. When you get 3rd world tax incomes you become third world, which is maybe the way Europe will now head. There is a call for lower corporate tax rates but when companies lie Apple pay something like 0.2%, that topic is smokescreen for the reality of this economic disaster. Interestingly...
They are showing that it is less bendy than the iPhone 5, of which there seem to be thousands.Seems a bit strange none of us knew that it is unwise to put the iPhone in your pockets until now.
They forgot the temperature test. Say it has just been used or the user have a rush of blood down their, what force bends at body temperature 37C ?
Well, I think they want to keep something back for fall 2015.Likely then we get to have 2 browser tabs staying 'live'.
