I'm glad that you realize that Googles doesn't make money on OS. Google is a search company - and most of their products are given away for *free*.Your point being? I use my smartphone (3 iPhones so far and just recently Galaxy S2) as more like a PDA than a phone. On average I make 4 calls per month (plus some texting). Google doesn't care what phones you carry or how you use them as long as they depend on Google search, maps, email, docs, etc, etc.Really? so what's Apps...
Well according to some recent report, apps on App Store's are cheaper than those of Android, so this doesn't even make much sense to begin with. If Apple colludes with Android (or any of its competitors) and artificially raise the price for apps, then, now, we have a case.
I already said "marketshare," not "profit share." BMW's profit margin may be higher than Toyota's, but Toyota is the first in units produced / sold globally. Furthermore, Samsung is #1 in smartphone sales (sold or shipped) and their profit has been growing - in fact, according to their Q1 earning report, Samsung Electronic's profit doubled while their overall net revenue went up 20% - all attributed to growth in smartphone sales.
wonder if Apple fanbois said the same thing about Android phones taking over the smartphone market share.
or just better appearance? or at least comfortable to wear?
Two wrong make a right? Why should they? The standard of living in China has been going up for decades without all these Western activists screaming. China's had the record double-digit GDP growth for well-over a decades (even if they are fake) - a feat only accomplished by Japan, Germany, South Korea.
just scanned through the DOJ's filing. It seems like the big 5 publishers and Apple were colluding together to force agency model on retailers/smaller publishers and set the price level. (they are some juicy stuff about how the publishers responded to Amazon's refusal to carry McMillans' ebooks & hardcopy). Down with Apple's anti-competitive practice!
That's why top-down socialism never works. Those elites in the top starve the bottom 99.99% in the name of fairness and equality. That's precisely what happened to Mao's China almost three generations ago.
What? I thought Apple can pick and choose any supplier for their retina display. After all, Samsung is like Foxconn that leverages unskilled workers to assemble displays *created* & *engineered* by Apple, though their manufactring process is somewhat more automated.
only if Apple is able to keep FUD by filing lawsuits against its competitors.
