I choose to pay the iBooks price. Period. As a consumer, I should be free to pay what I want for content, goods and services. I don't need the government "protecting" me. I wasn't scammed. I saw the price and paid it. The only thing that they are making their case on is that Apple colluded with publishers to fix prices. Personally I don't think they did. They just said stuff should probably be about this much money which is fair to publishers. I think the government is...
OK, so let's do some quick math Mr. Analyst. How many corporations are there in the world. Answer... BIG NUMBER that is greater than 500. OK.  Next, Apple says they are used in 98% of Fortune 500 and 92% in Global 500 right? Yes. But, they don't say that there is anywhere near 100% penetration of mobile devices used by employees in those corporations, just that they are being used there.  Now, let's look at IBM who may or may not be used in those large corporations, but IS...
Apple and IBM to Google and Samsung, "Hey, shut up kids, the grownups are talking over here".
Facebook, CNN, Hulu and others... take note. It's 2014. It's time to drop Flash like a bad habit.
Meanwhile in Googleland – KitKat can't even hit 11% penetration...   While Android fans may think it's funny that Apple fans mock them on this number, it's not a superiority complex... it's a very real problem for developers. Why would I build the next best, cutting edge app if only 5-10% of the population can run it? Economically that doesn't make sense. Developers are then forced to code for the lowest common denominator which means less elegant code, more time testing...
And now we know why the Chinese State Media was coming down on Apple...
IDC statistics. Ignored.
That's why I don't install Flash in Safari and just have to switch over to Chrome for websites stuck in the last century (ahem, CNN and Facebook)
Hey Corning... tell me again how fragile Sapphire Crystal is...
As an app developer, this pretty much sucks because it would allow people to download the app and then get a refund. Currently Apple allows you to keep the app but not update. This would need to be changed to force removal of the app and all your data as well. Otherwise developers get short-changed.
