I think Amazon has got it right. Instead of competing with iPad they are going for a niche area that they can do well. What they do is not for me but they are picking up a segment of the market and are trying to evolve their product there. I can respect that.
so basically they have said that Apple should 1.buy another company 2.pay dividend 3.buyback shares! 4.use the money to prepurchase components Which is all you can do with it (apart from increasing wages or building a new headquarters or more R&D which are partly mentioned in the report!!!!!)

I really do hope that iOS does not become the new CNN in which you are constantly bombarded by Facebook et al. I think the problem for Apple is that it does not have a social product like Google with its G+. So it has to either use G+ or Facebook/Twitter. Since Google is the competitor then Facebook it is.

Do not be too harsh!Ping: I think it should be dropped in favour of Twitter. I do not use it myself but if people want to use it, then let them have a Twitter account. I cannot really see an added value here by spending money on Ping, money better spend on other things!iCloud: no one knows the exact details and we can find out in two days Rip off: I do not really care whether it is a rip off nor should you! Does it work and does it do what you want it to do? If it turned...
Maybe the release date is in 2011
iAd was developed by Apple to make it easier for its developers to make money. Whether it did that or not is another story.
Your questions in the only thing that makes sense on this thread
