  This is not a business strategy for Apple. A business strategy leads to a bigger business and higher profit. Suing companies is not profitable. Apple does it because it is the RIGHT thing to do when something you invented and were granted a patent for is stolen. You should be standing first in line to support a domestic, American success story protect its intellectual property from theft by a Korean company. I guess you have no allegiance.
  You must be joking. When you say "pay their fair share on taxes", how much is that? They have paid what is required by law. IRS agents are permanently stationed at Apple and as Tim Cook told Congress, Apple is under a perpetual on-site IRS audit and everything they do gets IRS approval. So you are saying their "fair share" is more than the law requires? When was the last time you "paid your fair share" by paying the IRS more than the law required? Did you send them a...
And why does anyone care what anyone in Congress has to say? This is fresh... pick on the most successful American company in history and accuse them of (gasp) following the law as written. My god, are they now saying there is a "higher moral obligation" to pay taxes that are above and beyond what is required by the IRS? And if so, why are you singling out Apple and not every other corporation in America?   These so-called "senators" are nothing but a clown show and...
There is an incredible double standard being applied by these so called "analysts". What almost all of them are lacking is perspective. Admittedly Apple has hit a ceiling and it needs to grow sideways if it wants to keep increasing its bottom line. Analysts are crazy about Samsung because Samsung can only go up while Apple can only go down, and that is being reflected in the chatter as well as the stock value. Apple really does need to re-ignite some excitement in its...
Apple needs to loosen up and be first to market - especially after such a long time of not really bringing anything new to their game. Holding out for specific terms is only going to make Apple look like it's late to the party. The only reason Apple is successful with iPad and iPhone is because it was the first one out the gate on those types of products and it took years for others to catch up. Now Apple is trying to catch up to other streaming services, but won't bend...
  When the government invites you with a subpoena is when you show up to testify about anything, not voluntarily in front of a bunch of so-called senators who have already expressed a disdain for Apple and business in general. I'm sorry, but I simply would not do this on the basis of principal. If they want my opinion about something, come and ask me. Or let's go to lunch. But to "invite" me to testify in front of a bunch of angry senators who have already made up their...
  What is the difference between the two? Every tax dollar that you owe is every tax dollar that you are required to pay by the US Tax Code. How else do you know what "every dollar that we owe" means? There is a rule book and they are playing by the rules. Don't blame them for taking advantage of loopholes and taking every deduction they are entitled to take. That is what they owe per the law. Is there some higher moral tax code that I am unaware of, and if so, who made...
  Ah, how quickly we forget the days when the maximum individual tax rate was 90%. Do you remember what we did back then? We built bridges, interstate freeways, damns, put a man on the moon, and accomplished many other worthy goals as a nation. This is nothing but a dog and pony show for the senators involved, and they are going to try to make Apple look evil. Why is Cook even doing this? Apple is not under investigation and nobody issued a subpoena to Cook. Watch Apple's...
I don't believe Apple is under any kind of investigation, therefore neither Apple nor Cook have an obligation to testify in this hearing. I think Cook is rather foolish to sit in a congressional hearing, being asked questions, and looking like Apple is on trial when it isn't. Cook should have taken a pass and instead, invited a few Senators to discuss tax policy with him at his headquarters in Cupertino without any cameras present. That is how you do things. Now Cook is...
A well designed and built product should always retain its value better than a plastic knock-off.
