rs9 said:Everyone knows in the industry that Samsung shamelessly copied the Iphone. However Apple based it suit that it affected Apples bottom line. For the last 13 years Apple has been in an upswing; the most recent quarter we learned Apple made a little less that $18 billion in profit. Apples contention that it hurt its bottom line, doesn't hold water. What Apple needs to do is completely break ties with Samsung if its even possible.

One minute content blockers and spotlight are going to put a hurt on Google and ooh Apple should do its own search engine cuz that would really screw Google. Or Apple needs to make ARM Macs cuz that would really screw Intel. Now it's bring all their cloud stuff in house so they can screw Amazon. Thankfully I think Apple's decision making is focused on providing the best experience for consumers not how can we screw our competitors.
I agree. Apple doesn't do stuff to "screw the competition" they do it because as both Tim and Steve said, they want to be able to control the experience. If you're going to take the heat for any mishaps they might as well be your own. I think it is inevitable that they'll move off AWS and onto their own. They did the same with Akamai not too long ago after building out their own CDN.

This is the first year that iPhone growth has petered out and while forecasts aren't that great my suspicion is that people are seeing less and less reasons to upgrade. So they now need to come up with the next product. The watch isn't it. While no one is irreplacable the question is, is Tim Cook the guy?
We have four in our family, use it everyday, and it is an extremely impressive piece of technology.

New 4" iPhone, and iPad Air 3, and watch bands ain't it.

It's nice that Apple put a lot of thought into the security system and to me, it makes total sense that replacing TouchID by some stranger should brick the phone. Honestly, I think its a great idea. They did it to keep us - the consumers - safe, and not some conspiracy ploy.Honestly, why is this even an issue? Makes perfect sense to me why it works the way it does, and if it is explained properly to any customer affected, I'm sure they would be completely understanding by it. Take it to an authorized repair facility and be done with it. If there is not one near you, too effin bad!
