I'm inclined to agree, though I have no numbers to quote.
Well no actually, it's evidence that there is a possibility that some of that money ended up at the US Treasury, not that any of it did.   There is the possibility that Apple refunded at least $32,500,000 within 45 days and provided records to the Commission as such. There is the possibility that Apple did not refund the full amount, so gave the outstanding balance to the Commission which distributed it in further refunds. There is the possibility that some of that...
Really?  I'd say it gives an impression that Apple are engaged and willing to sacrifice their own margins to support the broader market.  That's responsibility, not weakness.
Seems like a strange arrangement for Apple to go with.  Why are they using the carrot of better iTunes Extras to tempt people into the streaming model?   Given that some of these iTunes Extras may run to hundreds of MB, or even GB, the local storage option would seem to be better for iOS devices.  Download on wi-fi, watch while on the move.  I hope it's a different system for iOS, though that would also be strange.
Ironic, given that he didn't say the words that you have quoted, nor did he imply them. By your definition* I believe that constitutes a strawman argument, no?* a very loose definition that few others would subscribe to.
Sure, you can have different priorities on a case by case basis depending on the movie.

Entirely up to you where you draw those lines, if you draw them at all.
Possibly true, though they may also have used it to cover losses. They don't seem to have been having a great time in the last decade. Shame, I used to quite like their stuff, and they were the closest thing to a iPod competitor.
iTunes won't match Blu Ray's image and sound quality for a fair while yet. But Blu Ray has nothing on the convenience of iTunes. Depends on your priorities.
You're killing me bro. What evidence do you have that I haven't fully read and comprehended you? You're the one who trots out logical fallacy accusations as if they're going out of fashion while seemingly having no practical understanding of how logical fallacies work.Here's a hint: when you appeal to both authority and popularity at the same time, that's a strong argument, not some kind of double fallacy, as you paint it. The error in an appeal to authority is predicated...
You are such a basket case
