One of their more potentially dollar-intensive advertisement delivery vectors.    Nothing beats the Motorola white elephant, though. 
Lol  I love the comments in the this thread.   
  I doubt Apple cares what phone the POTUS is using .I doubt consumers care.  It has absolutely zero influence on marketing ROI, market share, or any other measure of popularity or success. Apple doesn't care (nor should they) that it's not secure enough for the White House when it *is* more than secure enough for deep enterprise penetration almost everywhere else, as we've seen over the years. Hell, that's even made clear by a news item posted right here sometime over the...
  It's interesting that a lot of dullards and the perpetually ignorant accuse Apple of money-grubbing and profiteering, but all Ballmer can do for his big exit is try to boast about how much money he (allegedly) made the company.  You can tell when someone is overly concerned about their (negative) legacy when instead of talking about great product milestones (MS has barely had any for the past decade) they descend into bean-counting drivel. Ballmer has nothing to show for...
The big loser in this is MS. Again.
Let's not kid ourselves. The US is *the* platinum market. US cachet will make your product. It gets star-power. The other one to do well in is China. 
Already support for the Nikon DF. That was fast! The camera began to ship less than a month ago. And yeah, Apple needs to do something with Aperture. Seems to be just an iPhoto on roids these days rather than a worthy competitor to Lightroom.
The CEO also took credit for Microsoft's major push into the living room over the last 12 years with its Xbox franchise. This year marks its largest endeavor yet, with the launch of the new Xbox One gaming console, which Microsoft announced on Wednesday has sold 2 million units since it debuted last month. While the Xbox has earned buzz in the console gaming market and sold tens of millions of units, it's mostly been a money losing operation for Microsoft. In particular,...
You can also make money by selling rubber dogshit. But that isn't the point (nor that MS' share value been stagnant for forever.)   The point is that MS has been in decline for years now, not in the least because of their continued reliance on the Windows/Office cow, and their introduction of unsuccessful/unwanted products that simply undermine their core products - which are already in decline in the first place.    All this has amounted, over the years, to MS...
Seems the happiest places are also the ones that throw the most gimmes and handouts to employees.   VACATIONS + BENEFITS. That's what Made-in-America is all about today. Never mind product quality and consumer satisfaction, make sure the employee is livin' large, yo. Small wonder then, about foreign manufacturing.   It would appear that "Being relentlessly driven" is what was responsible for Apple's success in the first place. Glad to see it's still alive and well in...
