Seems like a case of "let's sue the rich corporation because I can". I'm not saying Apple isn't at fault, but it just seems very opportunistic.
I'm more curious about the people in the background. Who are they, how do they have this kind of access, and what sort of compensation are they receiving for these kinds of photos?
I don't see how Apple getting into the carrier business makes sense.   Can someone who thinks so shed some light on this idea?
I agree. The smart AAPL investor will know that Apple is not motivated by gaining market share, and its success cannot be judged by this metric. Also agree. Unfortunately, many are not smart investors and seem very susceptible to FUD, consistently selling off whenever rumors and faux-news stories like these come out. It doesn't affect me much because I'm a buy and hold investor with a long horizon, but every time the predictable swings happen in AAPL, I think about some...
I agree. It's an interesting idea. I think the problem they are addressing is the need to emote while texting. I've always thought adding emojis was cumbersome and time-consuming. This app tries to meet that need. But as others have said, with Snapchat and FaceTime already available, it seems difficult for this to gain traction.
I think it would be neat to have an exhibit about Steve Jobs at the visitor center. I can picture glass cases with the various iconic outfits Steve wore over his lifetime, including his three-piece suits and of course, the famous black turtleneck, Levi's jeans, and New Balance sneakers.
 I did meet many Chinese and Koreans in Japan. Maybe foreigners residing in Japan are the source of this pirated media.
 Like I said previously, I would prefer for all Apple products to be manufactured in the U.S. That's the ideal. But it wouldn't be cheap, so I recognize the trade-off there. In terms of respecting IP, I think Japan does. Generally speaking, they have a culture that prides itself on abiding by rules, and anecdotally, when I lived there, almost no one I met pirated anything. I never mentioned anything about being democratic, so I don't know how to respond to that. I think...
I agree, manufacturing in China is a financial necessity. If it made financial sense, I would prefer all Apple products to be manufactured here in the States like the Mac Pro. Bring the jobs, business, know-how, all back. Or at least outsource manufacturing to a country with more respect for intellectual property rights. Without its cheap labor, China is the worst place in the world to manufacture, in my opinion. They'll destroy their own environment and take advantage of...
I was thinking the same thing as auxio. My mother used to work in China as an accountant, and according to her, local officials stopped by their company regularly to demand bribes. At one point, when the company decided not to pay, they were made to jump through ridiculous bureaucratic hoops to keep from being shut down. I think what Maestro64 says makes sense, that China sees value in Apple because of the jobs and industry it brings into the country, so it makes PR moves...
