Post this on a pro-Android forum where people are always rooting against Apple and wishing for their failure. Tell them that competition is good for them and that if Apple fails, it will stall innovation.
You'll get no objection from me on this.Now, let's not forget that Apple is no stranger to these kinds of marketing tactics. However, taking swipes at the kingpin and calling it an amateur was never at the core of Apple's marketing strategy. But, then they compounded the problem by launching their 'shoot the messenger' service when confronted with tough questions at media events. That kind of lost them the final morsels of sympathy, as we have seen this movie before and...
RIM should do away with having co-CEOs. There should be only one Chief Executive Officer.
Apple has gotten too big and powerful. As consumers, we are suffering because Apple is just resting on their laurels. This victory against HTC is making Steve Jobs' head larger than it already is so I have a plan to bring back some competition and make Apple innovate. First things first, the US federal government should seize Apple, not buy them out, but nationalize them. Apple has a $70 billion cash hoard. That's too much. It's the cause of all the problems, such as...
What prevented those competing smartphones from innovating around Apple's patents? The point you are making may apply to patents that a company simply bought up. For example, it may apply to Nortel's patents. The government did not want some company just buying them up and suing others with it. If Apple developed those patents internally, then your point should not apply at all. As I see it, Apple put in countless hours on coming up with that patented technology. Apple...
A patent gives the owner the exclusive right to the underlying technology. Apple has every right to keep its innovations to itself. Put yourself in Apple's shoes. See how you would like it if the government forced you share what you spend million of dollars on.
Folks, quit getting worked up over Ballmer's jabs at Apple. That's a part of the game. In case you all have forgotten, Steve Jobs is known to take swipes at competitors. Remember "2011: Year of the Copycats?" Also, he derisively remarked back in October that the slew of 7-inch tablets coming to the market should come with sandpaper so that users can file their fingers so that they can type on those tablets. And he has publicly vilified Google and Adobe. It's the job of...
My point too. The government did not do anything, other than approve the iPad for use in airlines. First of all, people who want to dismiss the iPad as a "useless toy" will have to take the FAA's approval of it for cockpit use into account. Also, I was kind of stretching the truth about the government buying these for pilots. My apologies.
But, but the iPad is just a toy! What is wrong with the government? They're spending my tax dollars on toys!!
I saw a report the other day which billed the situation with FCPX a scandal that's several times worse than "Antennagate." I don't understand all the hullabaloo over FCPX. What's the big deal if video pros decide to switch to an Adobe product? Talk to me when those video pros start using Windows machines instead of Macs. The amount of money that Apple makes from sales of software like FCPX is probably chump change compared to what Apple makes off of stuff like its...
