Who are you pointing at? singularity is the only user in this thread with that exact location, and he hasn't posted anything particularly anti-Apple.  At worst he was neutral. Or are you talking about Which magazine?  Because that's just one publication amongst many. Other UK-based users in this thread that haven't been anti-Apple: MazeCookie, KiltedGreen, Benjamin Frost. Even if I've somehow missed one (deleted post?), that's 1 hit in 5.  Not running especially deep, even...
 I never said WhatsApp were worth the price Facebook paid.  Don't know why you assumed I thought that.
You talk about double counting people, but who cares, it's profit that matters to the health of a company, and they won't be double counting that; if a user earns them $15 from a Facebook account and $10 from a WhatsApp account then they earn $25 altogether, but for all intents and purposes those are two entirely different chunks of profit, and it makes no difference if they were from different users.

I wasn't...
Does it matter much if they monetise them separately?

The post was unclear and now you've clarified what you meant. Calm down, both of you.
I agree.
This is a discussion board for sharing opinions, not repeating dry facts ad nauseum. Apple III, I think you're right in that Apple need to be thinking bigger in terms of ecosystem or they risk being nipped at from all sides. They have great command of the current digital hubs, but there is only so much more expansion space within those walls, and their rivals are getting into much broader games, the living room, the road, and others. If the rivals build momentum in other...
