They've done it lots of times, indirectly, through lifestyle ads showing lots of different people doing lots of different things on a Mac.    And if you think back to some of the earlier Mac ads there was the one where "this is what you have to know to use a PC" and they drop a giant user's guide and "this is what you have to know to use a Mac" and they drop a very thin user's guide.    And there was also the one about "this is how you setup a Mac" (I think for the first...
 Yes, you can read the iPad indoors, but it provides far more eyestrain than an e-ink reader.    Unless I started traveling constantly as I used to, I would never buy a Kindle because I don't want to carry so many different devices, but I have to admit that the Kindle is far easier to read if all I care about is reading books.   You have to give credit where credit is due. An ideal device would somehow enable both e-ink and a retina display in the same physical device.    
Has there ever been even one presidential press secretary who hasn't lied constantly?   That's their job.    It doesn't matter if it was Pierre Salinger, Bill Moyers,  Ron Ziegler, Ari Fleischer, James Brady, George Stephanopoulos or whoever you want to name.    His job at Apple (or with any such company) would be to develop positive relationships with the press, especially when Apple needs to counteract negative stories about them as they recently had to do in China. 
 Negative comments on any forum mean absolutely nothing.   The web has become a place of mindless idiots who preach hatred for various things, some trivial ("George Lucas ruined my childhood") and some important (Mideast issues) without really understanding the issues. One can have any opinion they want and do with their money what they want, but I think it's completely absurd that because one has decided they hate liberals in general or Obama specifically (for either...
The contractual relationship is between an author and a publisher, not an author and Amazon (except for those few who publish directly with Amazon).   According to press reports, Amazon is paying the publishers the regular wholesale price for each downloaded ebook, which means that they have to be losing a lot of money on this program, but I think it's pretty clear that Amazon's purpose is to gain market share and get people in the habit of only ordering ebooks from Amazon...
No, it's your understanding that is poor: For the most recent quarter:Apple's share of the U.S. computer market slipped again during the second quarter of 2014 despite a global trend towards growth in the PC marketplace after tablets like the iPad cannibalized sales.  Source: IDCAccording to IDC's preliminary results for the most recent June quarter, Apple continued to bleed marketshare in the U.S. PC industry, ending the three-month period as the only top-five PC vendor...

 Consumers don't care whether Samsung (or any other company) makes a profit.   If they can get a device they consider nearly as good for less money, that can affect whether Apple will be successful in this market for as long as Samsung (or others) are willing to lose money selling a line of products.     Having said that, Apple's track record over many years has been that they can demand higher prices for their products than the competition.   But that ability does erode...
 I disagree.   What I think IBM will want to sell here is the storage, databases and supporting web site platforms (like Websphere) as well as Cloud storage and services to companies who want to use iPad based apps that connect to large enterprise-type systems.  If IBM wants this to compete with HP and Accenture, so what? Also, I'm not so sure one can make the claim that Apple "owns" the enterprise mobile market.   While users have forced many companies to accept the use...
 A collectible market?   You can only have a collectible market when supply is heavily limited.   Apple produces mass-market items that sell in the tens of millions of units.   There's no such thing as a collectible market in that case.   What collectible items from Apple are there today (aside possibly from a working Apple ][ )? And how can Apple fumble?    If the product isn't that great and then Samsung or someone else copies it and puts it out at half the...
