The same reason that Apple sells Nike Fuel Bands is because Tim is on Nike's board. You should consider third parties as well. Don't give Apple all the credit. The iPhone itself is made of components from lots of companies, yet you don't take to notice other people's work inside because it's branded with an Apple logo on the outside. Think before you speak.
How about you think before you post, specifically before you post in the WRONG sub-forum…?!?
The Nike Fuel Band is a bad example, as it is NOT an Apple product, no matter that Tim Cook may be on the Nike board of directors… I am not even going to get into an argument about Tim Cook being on the Nike board as the reason Apple sells it on their online store… They more than likely sell it because it is a THIRD-PARTY accessory that provides an added value/usage to the iOS line of mobile hardware products, nothing more than that…!
Using the fact that the iPhone is assembled from components made by other companies is also a bad example. It may be a collection of 'other peoples parts', but when it comes to the final product, it is STILL and Apple product…
Quit trying to rationalize you way out of the fact that you made a poor decision on where to post about a THIRD-PARTY product designed to work with Apple iOS devices; this forum is for speculation on FUTURE APPLE HARDWARE…
