Steve Jobs owned Pixar over ten years ago before he made it a public company. Then the shareholders owned it. He WAS ceo and did sell Pixar to Disney.
I doubt pixar use macs for little else than send emails.
I do agree it's a super price. But for those of us (you included) who have been using FCS since the beginning, and have paid for all the upgrades as they came out, to now pay the same has someone who is buying his first station leaves a bit of a sour note. Upgrades to FCS should be 299$ including Motion/Compressor.
I wish my toilet was earning 640 million
Your quote is verbatim what people said about Apple in 1995. People said I was crazy to buy their computers.
RIM have to worry and react, but to say they are finished seems premature.
Is that a fact?
When you are downloading music, software, books, magazines, they are not located on Apple servers?
I would tend to agree that publishers want sales data. They always had access to that but nothing says that cant be worked out in the user agreement when you purchase a subscription.
I'm wondering why so many people bring up the 30% that Apple charges for hosting, distributing, collecting sales and making payments to it's media suppliers.
These people always make it seem that Apple is ripping someone off?
Dont they realize that when they buy something in a store... that the store (depending on the location and product) is charging you from 15 to 60 %
quick guess: Apple 70 Billion in revenue.... Samsung 170 Billion in revenue.
Be careful of what you wish.
I love my Samsung washer and dryer (best i've ever owned)
I love my Samsung TV (it's been running perfectly for 4 years)
I hate my Samsung DVD player (software/firmware is crap)
conclusion: will never buy a computer or phone from them.
