The headphones make some money. It's not clear exactly how much. Last year the iPod + accessory line made $1.88b without Beats and iPod sales were falling ~50% YoY. If they did the same drop, iPods would be ~$230m lower. This year the iPod + accessory line made $1.689b so $191m lower. So the Beats addition hasn't countered that revenue drop much but the margins are likely a lot higher. From that revenue, it doesn't look like the headphone side would pay off the $3b anytime...
... or ankle:The problem doesn't affect all people with tattoos, just the ones with tattoos that cover the wrist with dark ink, which is probably a small percentage. There's a guy here who tattooed a picture of his baby onto his face:http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/04/26/why-a-texas-man-had-his-baby-tattooed-onto-his-face/Don't judge him now. He can wear the watch just fine.For the wrist tattoo people, Apple can bring out an $80 adaptor or an Watch...
Where is the evidence in support of the statements? The media focuses on a handful of cases to push forward a certain narrative that gets an emotional response from people. Killings are all documented:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_killings_by_law_enforcement_officers_in_the_United_States,_2015The media puts out news articles that say things like more civilians have been killed by cops than people killed in 9/11 or Americans killed in the war since 9/11. This is...
There's one like that here:It works better with the seconds on the outside so you don't have to read right to left. Having different faces is a huge advantage over traditional watches because you don't have to buy a whole new watch just to get a new watch layout. That style wouldn't work on the Watch unless it was shrunk down but it can be done in columns instead.
It would only be $9b in total for a given period. Apple themselves declared they'd avoided tax around this amount. It's still far less than they pay in the US. Smaller countries in places like Europe will always be able to offer more favorable tax rates than places like the US because relatively, the support they need to offer is lower for a smaller population.It would have some impact on Apple's cash pile but the cash pile is over $200b. Even if the amount crept up to...
It shouldn't be too taxing on the battery if they have an API that just sends time data out. The Watch only has to recalculate the interface when it wakes up. However, if people start using lots of white then it would use more power when active. The following shows what they could look like: One problem with a store is having to look out for copyright designs. Doing it like web apps would be the easiest way: http://neilwallis.com/projects/html5/clock/index.php They...
There's a video of one here with a gold plated band:There's a DIY guide here for the Sport model:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12456900 "Tattooing was significantly associated with living in a single-parent household, and lower socioeconomic status, peer substance use. Adjusting for sociodemographic factors and peer substance use, tattooing in adolescents was independently and significantly associated with reported sexual intercourse, substance use, violent behaviors, and school problems. CONCLUSION: Permanent tattoos are strongly associated with high-risk...
For their own style they rely on personal tastes, I expect their editorial choices to be different. Anna Wintour and Suzy Menkes are fashion critics for Vogue, they aren't fashion designers. They are like the Siskel and Ebert movie critics. The artists and designers present their work and these self-appointed critics share their feelings about them. They clearly don't apply this to themselves because how they style themselves are not styles that appear elsewhere.Their...
The estimates are out but Apple themselves state their gross margins, which average to about 40% and Apple has said that their Mac line has lower margins, which reduces the average. If we go with 40% then the costs to put out a $649 iPhone would be $389. The iSuppli estimate of $216 is 55% of this. The real number for build costs alone will be somewhere between $216-389. The estimates should use the gross margin as a guide.The biggest problem with low estimates is that it...
