    True!   But if they had the $2,810,000 to buy those shares in the first place... clearly they are doing something that makes them that kind of money all the time.   Still though... $200,000 in a short time is nothing to sneeze at!
It's gotta be much less. While Microsoft Stores sell a lot of their own stuff... Windows, Office and XBox... their big ticket items are from other companies. HP makes most of the money when a Microsoft Store sells an HP computer. In contrast... every time an Apple store sells a $500 iPad or $1200 Macbook.... all that profit goes directly to Apple.
iPad touch-targets are already bigger than iPhone touch-targets. Even a slightly smaller iPad would still have decent-sized touch-targets.
Ah... that makes sense. Well... the carriers are in trouble then... they already sell 15 other phones that aren't the iPhone. But people aren't choosing those... And I don't think the carriers should resent Apple for making so much profit... they are in different industries. Apple sells a $650 phone... and the carriers will collect $90 a month from each customer for the rest of our lives. Besides... it's the carriers' fault... they started subsidizing phones. I once got...
It's a guess... but I can agree with it too.Every time the new market share numbers come out... they paint Apple as "losing" market share to Android.By definition... "market share" is all the products on the market for a particular time period.... all sold and un-sold products. This includes all products simply shipped from the factory to Best Buy.So yes... every quarter there are more and more tablets being pumped into the channel... yet Android manufacturers rarely share...
I wasn't aware the carriers were supposed to make money from selling the phones. The carriers sell services... which is what they charge a monthly fee for. I'm an American... so I only know subsidies. My 16GB iPhone only cost me $200 because Verizon subsidized it. Basically... Verizon then wrote a check to Apple for the remaining $450. But Verizon does that because they will make it up by me paying a monthly fee over the life of my contract... or at least that's...
Didn't the same thing happen with the iPod?
It gets especially frustrating when it's the weekend and there are no new stories to comment on...
Don't you already own Jurassic Park in a much better format than iTunes can deliver?Blu-Ray?
