Let me rephrase my statement. FRAND is not exactly a legal designation. It is a licensing doctrine that applies to standards-essential patents. My statement was in reponse to a poster who claimed that people on this forum go gung ho when Apple sues with a patent but cry foul when other sue Apple, throwing around terms like FRAND. Standards bodies create standards in order to ensure interoperability. Companies that contribute to standards with patents typically agree to...
Your perception is completely wrong. FRAND is a legal designation applied to patents that are essential to implementing standards. Apple isn't suing using a patent LEGALLY DESIGNATED as FRAND.
Why are you wasting your time? Let me tell you what people say whenever it is put forward that dozens of other companies have their stuff made in the same "terrible working conditions." They say that Apple has the resources to eat the cost so they should take the lead. Essentially, they're saying that Apple has the resources to do better, so they should do better. Others don't have the resources to do better. They don't understand that it's not so simple as just throwing...
This is turning in "Which came first, chicken or egg" type debate. Here is what I can tell you. Companies want to save resources, be it time, money or others. It's easier to hire a US citizen than it is to hire a non-US citizen who needs sponsorship for work permit. If you want to know why people are turning away from Engineering and Comp Sci, one need look no further than our schooling. High school education has died. Students' math skills have been on the decline for...
I completely agree with you but I stopped posting replies to ill-informed comments like the one that you replied to. People just don't understand that Apple is in the business to make money. You should read MacRumors. People vilify Apple ad nauseam over how they're treating the pro market badly. They say the same thing that the OP said about resellers. They say that the pro customers were Apple's bread and butter and Apple is now turning their back on them. They talk ad...
For those who want to bash Apple for being greedy, let's not forget that Apple is neither the first corporation to outsource jobs nor is it the only one engaged in it. As for Foxconn, Apple is not the only customer so I fail to understand why they should be the ones to pay Foxconn higher wages. Are Foxconn's other customers ready to pitch in to pay higher wages to Foxconn employees? The way I'm seeing it, people seem to imply that others outsource to China and use...

You want to talk about Windows, then let me give you some info. Windows may have the top market share but the hardware manufacturers aren't making a dime off of PCs. IBM saw the writing on the wall and sold their PC business to Lenovo because they saw PCs turning into a commodity. Microsoft is the only company in the Windows PC business making money. Everyone else isn't making anything. Dell, HP and the other bellwethers in the Windows PC space don't see PCs as a profit...
The unit that makes phones is separate from the unit that makes stuff for Apple. With Google, however, it's all the same. Apple is lining a competitor's pockets with cash. Apple should get away from Google's services altogether.
