 Apple should not do this, this is how Google pushes people to the things it wants you to see and use, ie they paid Google to push you towards them. Apple does not care about pushing users to one program over another thus the reason developer and users like it. The best bubbles to the top not force to the top because someone bought their way there. I personally never had an issue finding what I was looking for, i have seen some apps which I would have found sooner than...
His point was that Apple like many companies are hiring off shore programmers to do their systems. This very well maybe true. Most of these people have minimal experience doing these kinds of systems but they can through 10 people at it for the cost of 1 experience person in the US. It is the way of the future and why these systems do not always work so well.
I am still trying to understand the value of this, I believe if they are doing this, it just to show they can do it, not because it has some sort of utility value.   It appears Samsung is respond to every rumor that has come out about an Apple product, except TV since they already know what Apple knows is that is a dead market you do not make money selling TV these days.
This is why a good old fashion cash Register just works, I remember when Mastercard system went off line and stores could not process CC think about that. When you are loosing money because of technology you need to rethink things.
Agree, but profits are what is used to determine how much damages you pay. If ford was able to sell more cars because of that feature and made lots of profits than that is what is used. To your example, if Ford made $100 profit on ever car sold with that feature and they were some how able to determine that the wiper feature was only $0.02 of the profit then the patent holder can only collect damages on the $0.02 times the number of cars sold. It does not work that way,...
Exactly, Data plans make money for service providers and all the current data says iphone users use more data than the Android counter part. Service provider have a love/hate relationship with Apple, they hate them since Apple makes all the profits on the phone and the extras and Apple maintains direct contact with the customer. They love them since they make lots of money off data plans, and as far as I know other than the ipad, there is not pay as you go with data, it...
You make a good point, software in some regards can be timeless, its value can go far into the future, unlike most hardware which has relatively short useful life. For anyone know the original Apple software could be in the OSX or iOS. I know the original mac use apple II code, such as Woz's floppy disk controller software. For all we know it could still be in current version of OSX. 
First does anyone think that Samsung  That are saying that only made $5 per phone sold. if that is true then all the profits they are claiming now are over in flatted. They must be making all those billions doing something else, Maybe they are laundering money for Walter White.
As we all know, the analysis has defined Apple market as all people buying a cell phone. If you ask Apple who their market is, they have a completely different view of this. The analysis are attempting to cut the data in various ways to tell a story. Even they can not cut it how Apple defines its market. I think most people would agree Apple is not trying to sell a phone to every person looking to buy a phone. They are only interested in the people with the willingness to...
The math is simple people, You add together the profit each company makes so that is the total (Company A + Company B + Company C+ ect) then you take each companies profits and divide by the total, and you get a %.    You are saying since some companies numbers are below zero they should not be added or negative numbers should not be allow when adding up the total. There is nothing in the math that said you are not allow to add a negative number to a bunch or positive...
