This article makes a lot of sense. One might expect Apple to come up with a similar strategy if it was in Samsung's shoes. And we can see Apple still trying to free itself from corporate and technological dependencies that it sees as limiting its ability to control its own product evolution. So I think such a strategy will be good for the whole industry in general because the Android platform is far too fragmented and hence complicated for anyone to use as the basis of a...
When will the IT industry gurus understand that price is not the determining factor driving sales of Apple products. It is product quality, and the quality and depth of the Apple ecosystem experience that drives Apple product sales. Far too many so-called 'industry experts' are still completely stuck in the mindset driven by the failing Microsoft era philosophy that says everyone must compete on price. Is it any wonder that so many companies are now failing because they...
What should have been done with Microsoft/Windows years ago, and what should be done with Google/Android now, is for a consortium of people and organisations who suffer losses as a result of malware-based crimes, to mount a massive class action against companies that consistently fail to release or update malware-resistant products, or app stores. The release of malware-friendly products does enormous damage to an industry that has become a central part of the global...
Who really cares about what shareholders think? If they don't want to own shares in a profitable company that behaves ethically in relation to paying taxes, then they can sell their Apple shares and buy shares in a company in the fossil fuel, tobacco or gambling industries which have no scruples about behaving unethically. 
I have absolutely no reason to believe that Apple did anything illegal in Australia, but what it has done is certainly not ethical. Nor is it good business practice because it risks a consumer and government backlash in many countries, particularly Australia. And Apple really doesn't need to take that sort of risk with its brand. Apple would be wise to admit that these taxation policies are unethical, and make very significant payments to countries that have been...
Oh dear, oh dear! Some poor little rich boys think it is time to sell Apple shares and buy what ... Microsoft shares or Samsung shares? Let's hope Apple just ignore these parasites and keeps concentrating on what real CUSTOMERS think, and keep driving INNOVATION for the entire industry for decades to come.
But this sort of deluded criticism of Apple has been going on in the IT industry for the past 30 years. Some people never ever learn from their errors. We see exactly the same crap coming from so-called IT 'experts' (aka drips-under-pressure), who constantly criticise Apple products because Apple goes out of its way to prevent idiots 'fiddling' with its hardware or software and opening up the Apple ecosystem to virus writers and cyber criminals as Microsoft so...
Oh dear, oh dear. What a bunch of losers Apple customers are!   Why, oh why, do they insist on buying simple software that is designed for use by 'real people', not IT professionals with years of experience negotiating the intricacies and complexities of Microsoft products? Why do these slack Apple customers want to do things like real work or having family lives, rather than marvelling at all the unused features of Word, Excel and Powerpoint, and generating revenue for...
Well I guess that is what we come to expect for the anti-Apple, pro-Anything-but-Apple 'anal ysts'.
 Yes, in Australia we get frequent calls from Indian call centres saying 'Microsoft' has detected problems with our Windows machines that they need to fix for us. Of course those of us with Macs find these scams rather amusing. But the IT industry seems incapable, or unwilling, to close down these Microsoft-inspired scams. When will the IT industry stop protecting the interests of a company that produces such crappy products that scammers, criminals and amateur IT...
