FWIW, it's just a rendition of what the device likely looks like based on verbal descriptions. We used the iPhone materials as a basis for the rendition but I have no idea if it has chrome on it or not. K
1.754M portables -- making the correction.
LoL.... not to make light of a horrible situation.
This issue happened to one of our devices. We did not cover the original story until we saw it with our own eyes. The unit has been returned to Apple. Kasper
You are indeed 'something else,' teckstud.
That's only for parts and manufacturing. These machines have to be developed, marketed, shipped, etc. Even if Apple sees a $150 profit, that's just 25%, which is well below the company average of the low-to-mid 30% range.You can see in our mac price guide:http://www.appleinsider.com/mac_price_guide/that resellers are selling the $599 model for $549, which means that they buy the machine from Apple for just north of $500. So that suggests margins could be less than 20%....
They may be content as high-level investors and not want to own the company outright, which could also lead to some antitrust matters. But that's just speculation.
Please see the earlier reports linked into the article. They tell the whole story. We are 99.9% certain. All of our earlier predictions have panned out and we expected, in due time, this will as well.K
This whole matter is very much an open debate, regarding whether Apple really needs to take the subscription accounting route. But no, Mac revenues are not amortized and are recorded in full when they ship. K
He actually makes an intriguing observation and your response really does it no justice. Yes, there are dozens of farting apps, but some developers are turning out quality products.
