Actually, didn't I just read the Mac marketshare in the US just hit 15%?http://osxdaily.com/2011/03/18/mac-m...a-14-and-more/ Bascially, Apple's numbers here in the US have doubled over the past two-three years.
Nope, still talking platforms. TFA: "Android fared better when users were asked solely about software, as 55 percent said they would stick with Google's mobile platform." Again, nearly half are considering switching away from Android.
Nice spin, especially the use of the word "majority". But at 55% / 45%, why don't we go with a rough approximation and say that HALF of all Android owners are unhappy enough with Android that they'd consider changing platforms. Same with "less than a third" at 31% vs. 33%. Again, technically accurate but a cake into thirds and give me a slice that's only 31%, and I won't complain. And that also means that 14% (1 in 7) are willing to leave it for a platform OTHER than the...
They did that too.TFA: Android fared better when users were asked solely about software, as 55 percent said they would stick with Google's mobile platform. [PLATFORM] But an additional 31 percent of Android users also indicated they are likely to switch to an iPhone for their next handset, leaving Apple a sizable chunk Android users.In other words, it's 89% vs. 55% based on platform, with almost 1 in 3 Android uses indicating that they want to switch to iPhone.With only...

If you really want to know, go back and read all of the ahmlco posts. I think my reasoning on some of the benefits has been clear.I might also mention that this is Apple we're talking about. Not everything done, from the new building, to the Apple stores, to the materials used in their products, is always the cheapest. If there are good enough reasons to do something more expensively, they're not afraid to do so.
Indeed. Next time, try not to strain your brain so much. Maybe you could limit the scope of your argument to just... Why? Because! That's why!
Ah, a reasonable reply. First, we're at the tail end of the offshoring era, in which everyone left because costs were cheaper elsewhere. Now costs, even in China, are rising. In fact, they're rising to the point where Foxconn itself, king of slave labor, is looking at installing a million robots by 2013.Second, those are the numbers that fail to take into account the "tax holiday" for which Apple and other American companies are lobbying. Apple currently has cash holdings...
Facebook??? A social media company that produces... nothing? Fine. Facebook's revenues were a whopping $2 billion. Foxconn, the Chinese company most in the news as the world's largest electronics manufacturer (you know, people who actually make things) did about 30x that, at $59 billion. Yeah, what's stopping them...
I like your arguments. The one thing that makes this possible here in the US is automation. In fact, the benefits are so great that Foxconn is going to replace many of its workers with robots. So we won't get a lot of manufacturing-style assembly-line jobs. But we will get engineering and technical and management and support jobs. Not to mention the mini-boomlet from building said plant in the first place.
