He's a liar.  Pure and simple.  IHS iSupply has a total BOM of $63.95.  Apple does not build things for free.  Unlike others in the industry they don't have to.  Heres a link to the BOM list  https://technology.ihs.com/388826/isuppli-teardown-reveals-apple-tvs-inner-ipadThe only thing that has changed in the black puck models is the A processor so pretty much everything else has stayed the same. Also here is a quote from the iSupply articleSo in reality the Price above...
What a load of crap.  My daughter has a 5C and loves it 6 of her friends do to.  And a lot of kids at her high school do to.  Most of them either own a 5C or an older 4S.  The fact remains that it outsold all previous tier 2 iPhones.  Which is not a flop any way you look at it.  And if it directs people to spend $100 more on a 5s, so much the better for Apple to sell a more expensive model just as the article said.  The only thing Cook meant when he misinterpreted demand...
Good for Apple.  Any company doing there job should minimize there taxes its there job to do that for the shareholders.  If Australia wants more tax legislate and close the holes that allowed that money to slip through.
The iPhone 4 and 4s
Its a piss poor counter argument.  iOS is lightyears more secure, and were like others said here only on version 7.0.6, not even version 7.1.  That is still in beta.  At least apple updates its os, and gets it immediately to end users.  Unlike droid with which its anyones crap shoot when you get your update if ever once it gets past the carriers, chip manufacturers and hardware companies for approval. What a joke.  The difference in updates between iOS and Android are the...
Truth hurts 
truth confirmed nothing more.
Actually current core i5's and 7's and Xeons all have processors that run above 3Ghz some up to 3.9Ghz.  Intel slowed down the Megahertz Race on its own to focus on power consumption.  The current plan they have in place is that for every 100 Megahertz rise they reduce power consumption by 1%.  They are doing just that with the only processes in the world that can produce 10 nanometer wafers. And there working on 4nm and 2nm currently. As for there mobile processors, the...
Problem is with that scheme is  "Microsoft will slash Windows licensing feesby 70 percent for low-cost hardware manufacturers", not end users that would like to buy one off the shelves.  To us it is still $200.00 for a current copy of windows.  It does the end user no good.  Microsoft is a dead company walking, and especially if they allow droid apps to run on there phones.  With Apple and Gurgle giving OSX and Crome away for free Microsoft is being hit from both sides in...
