Looks like they've started filming: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2933880/Michael-Fassbender-Steve-Jobs-set-controversial-new-film-Apple-founder-s-life.html The physical resemblance doesn't have to be high if the performance is good. I'd say Noah Wyle did a better acting job than Kutcher while looking much less like Steve. Fassbender seems to be able to mask his Irish accent ok. No beard either (he has a ginger beard). Here he is with...
Apple's market cap is $682b, Google's is $364b. When Apple's drops while Google's goes up, it's not that Google is worth more than Apple, it's relative to their respective valuations.Apple's valuation has more than doubled in 18 months as people have already anticipated ('baked in') the success of the iPhone 6:http://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/baked-cake.aspChanges that happen now aren't all based on what just happened but more on what happens next, partly based on what...
Isn't it true? Nobody pays so much tax that it causes them an adverse quality of life.I assume you're talking about company bankruptcy not personal bankruptcy. People getting sick isn't down to stupidity and bad management. There was a couple who visited the US and their baby was born prematurely:http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jan/02/british-couple-new-york-hospital-bill-early-birthLook at the bill they were given for a few weeks of basic care - $200,000. That's...
So you're saying that the most efficient and most profitable companies are the least deserving of tax breaks for the purposes of job creation because the reason they are so successful is they can get by with hiring fewer people. I agree they shouldn't get tax breaks but just because they don't need those employees and those employees aren't owed a job, Apple would be proud to invest in their country. They have a whole page about job...
You can try resetting the SMC: http://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201295 but if it says to replace the battery, there could be something wrong with it and not necessarily that it's worn out from overuse. They can stop functioning prematurely from underuse, maybe environment conditions (too hot, too cold etc). The prices for a replacement are here: http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=Australia&product=Macnotebooks
A $6400 processor isn't Apple's competition:http://h30094.www3.hp.com/product/sku/11112625The CPUs alone would be $12800 plus the power draw would be nearly 300W. Some dual options would be cheaper than what Apple offers, which is Intel's fault - they're the ones pricing both. We don't know what prices they're getting from Intel either.They could do that with the current design but it's not really necessary, especially the more the core counts increase.They never offered...

I agree with you that trickle down economics is a lie but Apple is proud of their job creation. Building their own network infrastructure would be huge and they can afford it easily. Remember when they launched the iPhone and it was stuck on AT&T and everyone laughed at them for exclusively using the 2nd best network like they did with Sony:Apple having a network gives them the whole widget.
You're still implying that something being legal means the government wants you to do it. Smoking is legal but that doesn't suggest that everyone in the world should start smoking. Welfare is available but they similarly would rather people don't claim it if they don't need it.Governments have never asked for everything but they do sometimes have crazy tax...
Tax avoidance is not your duty at all. Just because it's legal doesn't mean you're expected to do it. Here's the UK government's stance on it, which is one country where Apple avoided tax:https://www.gov.uk/government/policies/reducing-tax-evasion-and-avoidancehttps://www.gov.uk/government/publications/tax-avoidance-general-anti-abuse-rulesBoth avoidance and evasion are criticized. Evasion is illegal, avoidance can be punished but it depends on how it's done. If the...
