So, I take it that many of you would deny, deny, deny there could EVER possibly be ANY issues with ANY Apple product... Ever. Even after Tim Cook gets on their screen and confirms it... People on here will still call anybody a whiner for pointing out an issue. I have given Apple probably over $20,000 over the past 10 years. If I even MENTION an issue, I'm gonna get called a whiner? Seriously people... I have two new iPads. MY iPad has no WiFi issue, but it...
So... clearly you've lost any ability to talk about the topic at hand... The idea that leftists don't believe in the "broken window" theory and the "magical multiplier" is just flat out wrong. It is EXACTLY what people like Clinton believe. Seriously... her economic and political beliefs are in lock step with Paul Krugman. He recently advocated that Obama fake an invasion from Mars. He said that we would create a huge amount of economic growth by preparing to fight...
Does anybody see what those complaining about Apple not paying their "fair share" are asking? This is the scenario they want... Apple makes a product in China. They sell it to someone in Japan. Japan taxes the import of the product. Japan taxes Apple Japan on the profit Apple makes on the product. If Apple wants to move that money (which has already been DIRECTLY taxed twice, not to mention the added cost of all the hidden taxes in the supply chain)... if they...
Haven't you figured out what "fair share" means? To a certain segment of our population... the literal definition of "fair share" means nothing more than "from those according to their means." Apple has it... so they think they deserve it.
And... what is happening now? That revenue is lost from global corporations forever WITH our current policy. I mean... look at what Microsoft does. They SELL BONDS in order to generate cash to distribute their dividends... while tends of billions sit overseas.
I am to sexy for my hat?
Grrr... They do this on a Monday morning before the market opens... after a weekend where I moved most of my short term options to cash in case Greece blew up or something. :-/ It's obviously either buyback... or more likely a dividend. Whatever Oppenheimer... whatever...
Now he's clearly just doing it for the lulz
Sometimes... when people speak with such knowledge and authority... I guess they think people won't check facts.http://www.tuaw.com/2012/01/25/lesse...ngs-statement/ Desktops Unit sales up 16 percent Revenue up 15 percent Remember... industry wide, desktop sales are getting crushed. Apple is growing desktop sales fairly significantly even in this environment, despite your "facts." Apple has made the RIGHT move shifting desktop users to the iMac... all the actual facts...
The iMac is barely holding on? There's not enough head shaking available to express my feelings about the above statement...http://www.appleinsider.com/articles..._pc_sales.html We're in a world where EVERYBODY is shifting away from desktops to laptops. AIO's are the only place of strength left in the desktop world... and Apple is destroying everybody else in that market. All the facts we have in front of us go directly against the things you are saying. I'm not sure...
