I think a lot of these quotes are out of notes to clients who then pass them on, so not "public" pronouncements as such. ?
"If you rape a girl and offer her enough money to drop the charges you get to be an Apple spokesperson." 'you get to be an Apple spokesperson" does or does not refer to Kobe Bryant, the subject of the piece? Bryant's had numerous girl troubles, one where he famously bought his wife one ginormous rock IIRC.(a Colorado hotel incident?*). * Yes, Colorado:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kobe_Bryant_sexual_assault_case and this sure looks like what the poster was alluding to re...
LOL. And true. The one worrisome aspect of their getting a little bit dragged kicking and screaming into the larger screens.... You just know WS is going to expect the biggest one to dominate sales and it might not..
Go look up "spokesperson" for starters. Bryant mentioning a conversation with an Apple employee in an interview doesn't come close to qualifying. Now the paid shills for Samsung doing the selfies they post at various events for money? Spokesperson. Or do you see Bryant as an Oprah Spokesperson as well?

Gains in web usage. Looking at sales as a driver of usage increases: which I agree seems weak, sales that don't increase lead to usage that does? Some hidden inference that the Costco sales and new...
That was pointed out in the very first sentence of the article's text:"iPad is making gains in North American tablet web usage"
IIRC they've sold more 5Cs than Sam has sold S5's.....
Really could a company BE more needy that Samsung?
They'll occasionally get lied to but their directly lying is probably very rare. You get caught at that as press spokesperson and you're done. Now the administration behind the press secretary may very well know more than they give to the secretary: but that's a separate issue.
