I'm a bit confused by all this "cheap" iPhone talk. I can get an iPhone 4 for $0.99 or an iPhone 4s for $99.99 from AT&T. Seems pretty cheap to me. I'm not really sure what people expect from Apple these days. The stock is taking a beating for no good reason and the media is pumping Samsung, again, for no good reason. There's absolutely nothing revolutionary about the Galaxy S4. The new features are gimmicks. If Apple integrates a fingerprint sensor for unlocking,...
I use a number of apps from small developers who employ at least a few people each. Omni, IGG, NoThirst, Cultured Code all come to mind. The success of various game developers on iOS has also been well documented.
If 20% are making a living, I'd call that a sustainable business. Might be a business of one, but it's a business.The majority of app developers in any store aren't going to be able to make a living. The Internet facilitates more glut. How many word processors do we need? Before easy and cheap distribution, you had few titles to choose from. Today there are hundreds of apps that all do the same thing in pretty much every category. Only a few will be popular.I bet game...
That's not true. Apple complies with all local tax laws. Why should they be double taxed? The income was earned outside the us and taxes were paid where the income was earned. Instead of demanding more tax revenue from businesses (who employ Americans, half of whom pay income tax), why aren't we cutting all the waste? Our military budget is absurd. And for what? Instead of punishing success, why don't we get realistic about spending? I'm not talking about social...
You miss the point. You are already required to declare these purchases and pay sales tax. Yes, the law will eventually change and businesses will be required to do the tax collecting for you. But make no mistake, all of us buying sales tax-free items online and not declaring and paying taxes are already in violation of the law. We're all tax dodgers.
Sadly I don't see that ever happening. We've become way too much of an entitlement culture to ever be competitive again.
Great point. How many people on here whining about Apple not paying taxes shop online to avoid sales tax? Despite the fact that, by law, we're all required to declare those purchases and pay that tax to our respective states. That's outright tax dodging compared to what Apple is doing, which is perfectly legal. Yet lets tar and feather all those big evil corporations!
Because the US government is a big greedy inefficient beast with an insatiable appetite. They *deserve* a cut of everything!
What's the point of enlarging the display and keeping the same pixel resolution? Isn't the advantage of a larger screen that more information is displayed? Personally I have no desire for a larger screen but it's obvious that others do. I think Apple's primary problem now is price, not screen size. I saw a Radio Shack commercial last night offering the Galaxy S3 for $99. Apple can't afford to price itself out of the market like it does with personal computers. Sure,...
PowerFilm chargers are way better.
