This can be a frustrating issue but it's not just an Apple issue. These guys aren't asking for it to be repaired for free. They admitted they broke it and they say they are offering to pay for the repair. Several years ago I bought an LED television and mounted it on the wall. The wall mount failed an the TV fell and broke. Luckily I was able to use the insurance provided with my credit card that I used to purchase the television to replace it. The crazy problem that I had was the insurance requirement for a repair estimate. Nobody would give me an estimate. They would say it's obviously been dropped. I would agree and just ask for an estimate, which they would continue to refuse.
Only 2% of users are paying for the service and you think Apple should’ve bought the business at $3B? I like Dropbox and I’m one of the 2%, but $3B pays for a lot of iCloud development. I’m interested in how they turn it into an ongoing business. Will they use the IPO money for acquisitions that move them beyond storage?

The MacBooks that have Intel Graphics or Nvidia graphics are sill working fine. I sincerely wish Apple would stop using AMD graphics, from my experience AMD degrades the useful life expectancy of Apple products. I'm not sure I will continue to recommend Apple devices if Tim Cook (and his brilliant calculating mind) keeps using CRAPPY AMD Products.

Also, what are the tax implications of having multiple “headquarters” anyway? I presume Amazon remains a Seattle-based corporation and these are just satellite offices.
The problem with things like this is it has a little attention inside Apple now and will get rolled out. Then, because of the way they're organized, nobody will be responsible. It will not get any attention and two years from now you'll be lucky if it's still working because updates will be non-existent. If Apple is such a large company, why do they have to use the excuse "focus on a few things?" Why isn't there a VP for wireless networking responsible for making money on wireless routers. Who's is in charge of Photos? What's going on with iWork apps? And last, how could the Mac platform be falling behind? I'm a Tim Cook supporter. Nobody else could've taken over after Steve. But Apple is a giant company now. Their organizational structure is holding them back.

fallenjt said:There are more iPhone sales in Vietnam or Cambodia than in India even with the same or less income per capita and population < 10% in those 2 South East Asia countries. The Indian's shopping mentality is not the same as Chinese or South East Asian. Cook didn't understand that. If he wants iPhone sale to take off in India, price it at $200 for low tier SE and $400 for iPhone 6S.
And this is why Apple will make a car. They tried to work with manufactures and got frustrated. Just like they tried to work with Motorola and other phone companies. But just like the bastardized Motorola Rockr, cars will continue to have crappy interfaces...and soon there will be a game changer.
