>Apple did the exact same thing but more cleverly with I'm a Mac. I'm a PC.   No, they did not.   Apple attacked a PRODUCT in their ads, Samsung attacked USERS of products.   Apple says: PCs computers aren't good. Samsung says: iPhone USERS aren't good.   Microsoft is doing what Apple did - just much less successfully.
Those Samsung ads we're mean spirited, belittling, condescending , and misleading.   That works on a lot Americans.
I'm saying that Apple's suggestion of lowering the tax rates by 1/3 and slashing the rate to "repatriate" it's money to single digits is ABSURD.   They make HUNDREDS of BILLIONS in profits and still want to pay LESS taxes.   Don't be fooled - Apple is using gimmicks to shuffle money around to have the maximum benefit for Apple. I won't mind that so much if they'd be honest about it.  "Senators: we follow the law and we are trying to keep as much money in our pocket and...
> His expectations for tax reform include around 25% US Corporate Tax rate and single digit repatriation tax rate.   Apple is dead wrong about this. Greedy. (Remember, as much as we love the products that they are ruthless as a business.)
>I always get into this argument with people that have 10+ old software and then complain when their software doesn't work well with a newest version of something. >Sorry, either stay current (and unfortunately feed the machine) or roll the dice and hope your stuff still works down the road.   I don't think you actually work with real businesses. 10 year old software arguments? Try 2 year old software. Small businesses don't spend thousands of dollars on upgrades...
A few more things: It's $600 a year for the suite??? $49.99 a month.   How will pre-press shops use this? I know many shops that keep older version of Photoshop and even Quark around to match what their clients are using exactly.   What happens if I make a very complex Illustrator file using the cloud and then the cloud "updates" the software version and the next time I open it my file doesn't render in the same manner. This is a real concern - if you can't...
> If you need Adobe products, you opt in. If not you don't. No one is holding a gun to your head.    Clearly a gun-to-your-head is the most apt analogy to why people might be upset.   And Adobe no longer makes a product- they now offer a service.   A service you can never own - so let's say in three years they want to increase the fee to $60,000 a year - people might be upset. And then you'd say "Well, they didn't put a gun to your head."   Right now if...
So it'll be BIGGER and CHEAPER. Does that mean it'll have to be slower and heavier? There are trade offs.
>Likewise, searching for our Hotel Lafayette locally in San Diego CA, Google found the Lafayette Hotel I was looking for, while Apple Maps took me to the Courtyard by Marriott in Lafayette, Indiana. So, you type in incorrect data and blame the computer for not figuring out for you??
Not working for iPhone 5 in San Diego with grandfathered unlimited data. (No carrier update available, power cycled twice.)   Maybe they're rolling it out in waves?
