So, when it's an android or windows weakness, it's the fault of the software developers, but when it's a weakness in iOS or OS X, ooooo it's those dirty "nefarious" hackers.
The blame shuffling going on here is impressive.
As for Cook, hey Tim, if you're so worried about analysts looking too much into reports like these from your suppliers, maybe your should release actual sales numbers instead of cooking your books by burying those figures under headphones and adapter cables. Fact is the enemy of speculation. That's fine if sales didn't get off to a great start for one reason or another. Sales of the original iPhone sucked until Steve himself admitted the misstep and dropped the price...
450? 200 in two years? That's some disconnect there between yourself and reality.You can get a 5C for 200 bucks on eBay right now. In two years, you'll be able to sell it for 75-100 depending on condition.
$700? Which version did you buy? The Apple Watch is 549/599, and the Apple Watch Edition is 10,000/12,000.Also, of course the band that costs three times as much is nice. An Audi A8L is a lot nicer than a Honda Accord. Not everyone can afford a $98,000 car, however.
Wow. I really hope you were being sarcastic there. If that's not the case, however, you should be aware that watch bands like these have existed for over a hundred years. The only thing they "copied" were the mounting tabs at the end.
The Air 2 vibrates by design, not defect. Warranty doesn't cover that. Thinness comes with trade offs and that is one of them. Mine vibrates too compared to my previous Air, and the phenomenon has been well documented by reviewers at this point so I don't get the contrarianism his statement is being met with. It's not a deal breaker, it just is. I bought a semi hard silicone back cover for mine and that helped a great deal.
Pretty sure his "redemption" came from reconciling with his daughter and friends like Woz, whom he had burned badly on his downward spiral, not from rebuilding Apple.But hey, if money is higher in your book than morality, sure, what you said.
