A look at Liquidmetal's website, they list Samsung and Motorola as 2 of their many customers.
It's not "just the products" but rather they're not reliant upon anyone else. Apple's products are not commodities. They have their own unique OS and unique eco-system. Apple has the ability to steer its own ship. That's not the case with HP and other players like Samsung. When the OS is outsourced through Google or Microsoft, you're left with a commodity product, and with all commodities, either differentiate your product to justify higher prices, or be the low-cost...
Every company has a life span. It starts with an idea. It starts with an innovator. The first people to run the company have one thing in mind - product. They have vision. Usually, their successor shares some of that vision, but tends to focus more on financial matters. As time passes, those that take the helm tend to worry more about stock prices, stock options, their 401K, etc.. Many companies even get raped by later CEO's, who sell off everything that made the company...
So, you don't think they knew that selling unlimited plans was unsustainable? So, then, it's okay to sell them anyway? They sold "unlimited" data plans, knowing it wasn't a sustainable model. That sounds like fraud...
You people that claim data hogs are the problem are just dumb... Yes, there is limited spectrum. However, they sold the limited spectrum as "unlimited". And, technology can find ways around limited spectrum. Take for instance moving to DTV. It compressed the actual amount of spectrum needed for the same service. They made a pact with you that you had unlimited usage. Now, they change the terms and claim it's not possible. A very basic principle of economics is that a good...
+1 Never mind the real facts, just spread lies about how Apple is ripping everyone off... If anything companies that don't make the OS, but simply modify someone else's work, and try to sell their tablets for just as much are ripping people off.
Not completely true, or there would have never been an iPod Shuffle. But, I think Apple might start selling the iPad 2 cheaper to compete with the wannabes.
You people that believe this FAIL at economics 101. A basic principal in economics is "...a good or service will sell for whatever the market will bear, regardless of the cost to produce...". That means, if a good or service can sell for $50 a month, if it costs AT&T $45 to produce that service, or $25 to produce it, it will still cost you, the consumer, $50 a month - because that is the price you're willing to pay for that service. Data hogs may increase the cost to...
A little disappointed in the dual core processer, when Android tabs are starting to ship with Tegra 3 quad core processors.
Perfect! I'm due for an upgrade in December.
