You people are reading way too much into this. Insiders sell shares all the time to raise cash. For example, if they want to buy a house, they might just sell their shares to get the cash. It means nothing.
A lot of people move to states that have lower tax rates. They undertake all sorts of measures to reduce their taxes as much as possible within the bounds of the law. Outsmarting Uncle Sam has been a national pastime for decades.    Many individuals have tried tax saving strategies such as gifting some of their income to their kids as a way to avoid taxes. Since kids have no income, they have no income tax, so parents would be able to get some of their come tax-free....
First of all, in the eyes of the law, there are no "small guys" and "big guys." At least ideally. Patents are designed to protect the fruits of one's investment of resources, be it a large or a small corporation. A patent troll is used to describe an entity that acts basically as a patent holding company. It buys up patents from other companies with no intention whatsoever of actually using those patents to make a product. The patent troll buys up patents with intent to...
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...
