Could you please state a single event in our history where this has happened? Or a single industry? Your saying if Apple looses a patent battle - that's it, they are going to sell off inventory and shut the company down? The entire computing industry will quit? Science and education will be useless? Mankind will slip into total apathy and will never advance past today's knowledge and understanding? Kill all patents - or Limit them to 5 years - and watch the Economy...
Until the competition figures out the strength of a brand and brand consistency - Apple will keep rolling unabated. However, 'Android' is starting to gain brand traction - following Microsoft's model. Similar to Windows on PC's. Didn't matter that thousands of companies were making the hardware (as far as fragmentation goes), they were branded 'Windows boxes'. Once the 'Android' brand starts to cement itself in people's psyche, then Apple will have a run for it's...
I will agree with that. 'Rain' is getting a little long in the tooth. Everyone seems to like and agree with my other handle here thou. Maybe it is time to slay the troll and let the parasites win. Then the big love-in can get on without any interruption and real world perspective. After 30+ years, I'm starting to consider a computing life outside of Apple anyways. This new round of giving consultants the middle finger, insatiable greed, and just pure arrogance has really...
Someone had to step in for melgross, or this forum would be nothing more then a bunch of parasites agreeing that Apple is perfect, everything they do is perfect, they are incapable of not being perfect, all competition is flawed, all competition will be DOA, all competition is run by morons. - then have the gull to call out anyone who disagrees a 'troll'. Sorry, but someone has to interrupt the 'feel good affirmation' of the shareholders standing around congratulating...
It's true... satire is lost on the stupid.
Meh, nobody cares. Who wants to sit around with a pad that can only view some web pages and run fart apps. Now the Playbook... There is an exciting product launch. Can view ALL web pages, will have magazine subscriptions (unlike the iPad). Will have awesome apps like skype and Netflix (unlike the iPad)... Will be able to tether and create hot spots (unlike the iPad)... Think outside the box, do whatever whenever and let your wildest dreams come true. Probably why...
Hello Craigslist.
Mark of The Beast... coming soon to an Apple store near you.
Sorry, but your the delusional one.Just this morning Rhapsody told Apple to smarten the fuck up or they are pulling their app.Netflix will leave Apple in a heartbeat. They don't need Apple or their platform at all. No content producer does.It blows my mind how so many believe that Apple has all the cards here. Consumers who want publications, movies, music or any other service will find that service. It's insane to think people are just going to throw up their arms and say...
Good question. At the moment, one might say yes. Kind of like how some people need Money Mart - However Money Mart and payday loan companies are not allowed to just slap any fee they want on their services and charge people 30% of their cheque's. Not to mention that there is no way Money Mart could force someone to pay them 30% of their cheque if they get cash from another source or they can no longer use their service. It's called extortion. It's against the law. Apple...
