  • Apple lobbies against tax hikes proposed in $3.5T economic package

    Let's see, Tim Cook gets $14,769,259 annual compensation, plus, I saw an article recently that he had just taken $750 MILLION in stock benefits.
    Other Apple execs are making similar outrageous amounts of millions of dollars annual compensation.
      reference: <https://www1.salary.com/APPLE-INC-Executive-Salaries.html >
    One would think that they could afford to pay taxes. As would the corporation itself.
    As pointed out by a previous posts, they use the land, resources, people, infrastructure of this country, (and it is in dire need of support), so they should be happy to make the country stronger...   yes?   no?

  • Apple debuts $549 AirPods Max over-ear headphones

    Just an FYI, 
    TidBits has a good review which seems to provide more hardware and feature and specs information.
    Not sure if it is allowable to post a direct link here, so just search for it.

  • Apple debuts $549 AirPods Max over-ear headphones

    Has Apple totally lost touch with the real world where non-millionaires live?

    $550 for noise cancelling headphones.  Outrageous pricing, in my opinion.

    Need a cable for those times when you can't or aren't able to use wireless mode?  That will cost $35 for a 4-foot Lightning to 3.5 mm Audio Cable from Apple.  $35!!
    I guess if you can afford $550 for a headset, you can certainly pay $35 for a headphone cable without even thinking about it.

    Whatever happened to the computer for the rest of us?

    Apparently GREED has become the new guiding principal in Tim Cook's Apple.

    (yes Apple products have always cost more than PC products, but the prices have been getting more outrageously nuts the last few years)

    (I can neither afford/justify nor want the new headphones, but why does Apple hate less wealthy middle and less-than people?)
