Apple hardware isn't too bad these days once you allow for an exchange rate risk of about 10% (or ten cents if you will) and then factor in the 10% GST which by law is included in the retail price. Apps in the appstore are pretty close too. But music and video on itunes is despicably expensive. No doubt becuase the local rightsholders expect the poor aussie consumer to pay for their value adding lifestyles. And apple just adds its margin on top. There is no reason why...
While most a droid phones are smaller or similar in size to the iPhone, the flagship products are all big screen phablets. If apple chose to erode the market share of those products, would they make a larger phone, or an iPad nano?
Oh, we'll that's alright then. My bad. In my defense I was caught up in the imagined visuals of a Barbara Land type having an epiphany.
I take it you mean Martin Luther King and "I have a dream"? You mean that it is reasonable to equate immigration issues with the way some US States once created laws with difference types of governance on the basis of race? I was in fact wondering if that as an attempt to equate with MLK, but in the end thought no, that would be ridiculous and would cheapen the memory of MJK. I preferred to think it was a great idea some Barbara Land types had while sharing dandelion tea...
I am not buying into the merits or otherwise of the purposes of this act, as I come from another country, beyond observing that people that lived most of their lives in a place and have successfully worked, carried out a business should be recognised. But to call it the Dream Act???? Friggin' hippies. how can you take these people seriously?
It seems from these data that android lost share at AT&T and Verizon but made up for the loss on the smaller carriers. RIM though has cratered. And isn't windows8 doing well?
The Brazilian market is totally corrupted by high import tariffs. Nobody can afford an iPhone 5. So they accept crappy old Symbian instead.
Looks like a disney version of Skylander. What could go wrong?
I love how people like to use GDP statistics to try and prove their point (which boils down to we don't need those filthy miners, as the economy is really built on public school teachers, public relations firms, solar panel installers and lattes). Fact is, if it wasn't for the mining boom, the Australian economy would look very european. And the only point of the european economies seems to be to make the american one look not as bad as it really is.
if a company wasn't making money prior to 2008 there would have been a real problem....Good ol' Cliffy was just ridin' the wave, and fooling his CEO. Four years later reality has bitten. Same in Australia, Starbucks has closed almost all its stores. And so it should, it makes crap coffee anyway.
