Agreed! After having had success in the entertainment/arts field in conjunction with new media, I entered into the consulting world a little over a year ago. I've worked with many successful retail stores, some who have margins that range anywhere from 40-55%.To someone who doesn't understand anything about business, this goes through their mind: "OMG! What a rip off!! That's disgusting how much they mark up!!!!"To someone who DOES understand how business works, this goes...
Wow. iTunes/App Store is NOT a credit card processor. IT'S A STORE. They are SELLING their PRODUCTS to their customers. Does anybody in this thread know anything about the retail business? Apple takes a cut- it's THEIR store. Apple is the one who pays the credit card processing fees to Visa/MC/Amex.
QUESTION TO THE PEOPLE SAYING IT'S "UNFAIR":How many of you work in, own or have ever owned, a business?.
I know there will be tons of bashing in this thread but I'm happy with Apple's response and believe in their sincerity to make things right. I think these incidents are the last thing Apple wants and they'll spend the millions (small sum) to make sure this shit doesn't happen.
Producer / Video Editor here- I WOULD LOVE a more powerful Air with more STORAGE!!! I know it's coming but it'll never be soon enough!!!
I think it's premature to write-off Windows phone and to say that iOS and Android are cemented success. MS and Nokia are huge companies that won't leave this market laying down. Who cares if Elop is a Trojan horse. Let's see how this all plays out!
Just because I laugh doesn't mean I think it's a terrible thing!As an APPL investor I actually want MS & Nokia to succeed as I feel they'll erode more Android market share than iOS. On top of that, I kind of think the Windows phones look cool in their own right whereas Android phones look like a cheap version of iOS. Best of luck to MS!
Throw copious amounts of money Gotta love Microsoft's solution to everything!
As Tim Cook has stated: so much of the success surrounds the manufacturing. As an investor, I'm hoping Apple has secured components and is producing iPad 2 at an astonishing rate. I don't think 33 million would be enough for 2011 but we'll see!
I think this is good for Apple... but not necessarily for RIM and Android. I don't think MS is going to let the smartphone market go laying down... They still generate a ton of profits and can keep pouring money into this until they have a decent market share. And, if that turns out to happen... They'll likely be eating away market share from RIM and Android not iOS. As an investor: Yes, PLEASE fragment the non-iOS market space!!!!!!!! That's my take, at least
