At this point... does anyone really care?
Manufacturing an entire television in a low-margin market makes no sense. However, an entirely revamped Apple TV set-top box with more powerful hardware, third-party app support, À la carte subscription model Internet television, a revolutionary user interface and iOS device game controls makes perfect sense. I think it is what Steve was talking about in Walter Isaacson's biography.   This may be what we've all been waiting for. Add it to any existing household with...
"limiting it in this manner to our newly developed AT&T Mobile Share data plans out of an overriding concern for the impact this expansion may have on our network"   So basically AT&T is openly admitting that, in spite of 5 YEARS of HUGE iPhone plan revenue rolling into their registers, they have not been using any of it to build out their network. Instead, they have been lining their own pockets and living like fat cats off of iPhone customers (for a half decade)...
We finally got our A15-based "A6" chip in the "iPhone 5". Amazing engineering, beautiful design. I'll be getting two within 30 days.
Are you suggesting that Apple give away an Apple TV set top box to every American household that wants one in order to gain a better foothold in the television market? Although not really a bad idea at its core, don't you think the rest of the world would feel just a bit slighted if Apple were to do this only in the U.S.A.?
How about Apple just outright buy AT&T, fire all current management and replace them with Apple appointees. Then maybe Apple's customers could have a decent wireless carrier for their Apple products, one that treats them with some respect. Thinking just a bit deeper on the subject - it's also the last piece to the iCloud puzzle.
Then please, tell me, why are you here my good fellow?
Precisely! Well put, well put. I couldn't have said it better myself. Apple should be able to compete with CBS for the licensing rights to content - period. If you think about it, just about every form of media has a business model that is now outdated. I think Steve saw that before anyone else really did. He saw the potential to overhaul several media markets and was in a great position to do something about it. It's just a damn shame he wasn't given enough time to crack...
I can tell you exactly what happened there. Did you happen to read this CBS CEO's quote above? It's all about ego. Even though this guy's ego was wayyy big, he knew Steve's was bigger - and rightfully so. Although he'd probably never admit it, he was intimidated by Steve's presence, charisma and success. He wasn't about to have Steve Jobs come into his industry and show everyone else how he should be doing his job. Even if it was an Earth-shattering idea that Jobs was...
Seriously, is your sole purpose for being here just to irritate people, call people names and just be a general nuisance? Almost everything you write attacks either Apple, Steve Jobs or AI forum members. Why? I'm serious as a heart attack. What, exactly, is your motivation for being like that? I just don't understand people like you at all.
