  • iPhone could be hit by incoming $500B U.S. tariff threat on Chinese imports

     Hopefully Apple look hard and long at this And start manufacturing some phones in the US ,USA USA!
    Actually to manufacture the iPhone in USA would be extremely expensive. Something like 300 parts of the iPhone are produced in approx 100 countries which are then sent to China where the iPhone is then put together. Many of those parts will have additional tariffs put on them when entering the USA if you were to manage them locally. Tariffs = Fail.

  • Australian banks call alternatives to NFC 'unrealistic' in fight to avoid using Apple Pay

    ANZ Bank in Australia and New Zealand is using Apple Pay. So the longer the other banks muck around arguing, the more opportunity ANZ has in securing new young customers who want this feature for their day to day banking needs.

    This has nothing to do with capitalism and has more to do with extortion. Maybe Washington should use the RICO laws against the EU.
    Of course this has to do with capitalism. Apple doesn't want to pay taxes to the US government and they don't want to pay taxes in Europe. Then to top it all off, most of theses likeminded tax evading businesses (Google, Facebook, Netflix, etc) destroy local industries within many of the countries they operate. Google and Facebook have destroyed local publishers ability to earn advertising revenue, of which a portion was taxed and went to local government. No wonder the world is in a state of turmoil with huge degree's of inequality.
