Apple's pricing relative to rest of the world and India is the issue - a 999$ Note 9 sells for 999$ equivalent in India but a 999$ Iphone Xs sells for 1400$ in India, the new macbook air is almost twice as expensive as the old one it replaces in India, it is infact cheaper to buy a non-touchbar retina macbook pro in India, the one that was never updated this year. India isn't a poor country, neither is the country behind cheap products but we are not stupid enough to invest crap loads of money for no reason... Just a foot note - iPhone Xr, starts at 1050$ in India and they wonder why they can't crack the market...

It's why we pay a 911 tax (at least in Canada, I'm not sure about you in the US.) The 911 call is routed through Bell Canada's network (ie, here in Canada, I'm not sure who carries it in the US) I once read. So Bell should be getting some of that 911 tax money in compensation for carrying those emergency calls.
Yes, let's fire the CEO for a "bug" that is sold as products from Google, Amazon, and Facebook that are eavesdropping 24/7. Makes sense - a software error means they cannot POSSIBLY be serious about privacy!markbyrn said:Mr. Cook grandstands as social activist and prattles on about privacy while his bungling engineers have turned the iPhone into a remotely controlled eavesdropping device.
CheeseFreeze said:They have been failing on cloud services for a long time. There’s only so much phones you can sell. Google and Microsoft have taken the business market through their suite of excellent collaborative tools and professional hosting services. Amazon has taken their cut on pure hosting services. Apple kept us with bare bones consumer stuff and it’s not working except for consumers who do not look for anything else.
Meanwhile I can’t even edit a ‘group’ of items in Keynote because I shared the file - a process that often fails a couple of times before it works.
I’m super bearish on Apple. Their OS ecosystem is great but they have not built their company around truly scalable SaaS solutions. Tim Cook is the wrong leader for this day and age.
