Yes, and I've come to the conclusion Apple is just a corporation like any other, for the most part and will do what they can not to pay taxes. It would be antithetical to not do so.   That's why corporations need to be regulated and they are not "people." Corporations definitely don't care about a lot of things, but it's own survival.   Apple would get hammered by investors if it voluntarily took the opportunity to just go ahead and repatriate the income and pay taxes on...
You read my mind.   Wow, Apple store empty and Samsung store not. Apple is not as fast as they need to be. I look to Apple and Amazon for the cool, neat products with buzz. And I've always been a big Apple fan since 1980.
I understand your feelings, but think of Maps. Tim was unaware of how bad it was (for some of the visuals like bridges). Then he made a huge apology and basically said it was bad by telling everyone to go to the Apple Store and get some other map product.   My confidence has fallen with him. It appears the market has, too. As far as perception or whatever.   Maybe Tim is sweating now.   Guess who is making buzz like Steve Jobs? Google is. And they are making great products.
Google is eating Apple's lunch.   Apple seems in a paralysis.   This is really awesome of Google.   I'm using almost exclusively Google apps. Chrome on OS X and iOS. Almost all of Google's apps on iOS. Safari is terrible compared to Chrome. I just wish I could make Chrome my default iOS app.   What is Apple doing? Mac Pro? Their apps on OS X are getting poor reviews. Maps...   I will probably always use Apple products, but it seems like someone at the...
Apple can't track all sales. They don't know what is all sold everywhere. They don't have access to other company's inventories. There was an article I read last night that stated that Apple's numbers are "shipped", because they can only track sales through their stores.   "sold" is a myth.   P
Mail is pretty bad. I end up going to Chrome on iPhone to search my Google Mail.   I want to be able to set Chrome as default browser on iOS. Don't care for Safari.   Come to think of it, Google's apps are usually a lot better than Apple's. Many of my most-used apps are from Google. Google Now is pretty amazing - catching buses and getting food - it's great.   No time for analysis now, but I just don't like Mail or many of its apps. Podcasts has gotten better. Still use...
Yeah, Notes and Address Book (and Calendar) are hard to look at. I can only imagine what people half my age think about it. Teenagers (I should as mine) what they think about it. Address/contacts book on the Mac is just terrible, interface-wise. It's been terrible for years.   Podcasts looks better. Glad they got that reel to reel deck out of there.
My niece has a Kindle tablet and she likes it for reading and surfing. To each their own.
Yes, I was constantly getting dropped calls on my iPhone 4.   Settlement is a token payment.
Bingo. Great article. If the iPhone 4 only costs $200 or so to make (guessing here), then if they sell it for $300, they are making their typical profits.   Prices for technological products always come down, of course. Even for Apple. Its their game to lose or win. And winning doesn't mean more than 50 percent share. And losing could be a 10 percent share. 30 would be healthy - worldwide.   The rest of the world loves the iPhone, too, but it's more than a months...
