  • Apple CEO Tim Cook attends secret meeting with tech and government elite to plot end to Trump presi

    Considering the source was the Huffington Post, I don't believe a word of it.

    If there actually were some sort of conspiracy among business leaders and the establishment GOP that would be notable since all of the business leaders cited are liberal Democrats.

    in other words, this sounds like a complete fabrication.
    Right? Why would Ryan and Mitch meet with a group of super liberals that hate them and their party, and risk isolating themselves from their colleagues and the voters? They might not be thrilled at the prospect of a Trump presidency, but they'd fight tooth and nail for that over a Hillary/Sanders Commander in Chief.

    No offense, and I'm not at all a Trump supporter, but if that is who the American people choose, then that is who they choose. This is especially frightening if people within the government themselves are looking to interfere in the electoral process. Why don't Tim and these big tech companies plot to help a candidate they support win instead?
    It's not interfering, it's what's always done during an election. These people see Trump as a genuine threat to the US and it's their right to get together to plan ways to educate the voters so he doesn't get elected.

    I'm sure all the non-Americans watching this fiasco are laughing their a**es off. It's amazing how many laws he's breaking while forcing his freedom of speech onto so many sheep. If he was the president and said half the things he's saying right now, he'd be put in jail. If you don't know what I mean, read up on the laws against discrimination to start with.
    What laws, exactly, is he breaking in his campaign run?
    Also: here in America, we don't put people in jail for saying something we disagree with.

  • Apple to pay $450M fine after US Supreme Court rejects e-book antitrust appeal

    Honestly I still don't get it. It is ok for Amazon to use their dominant position to drive others out of business but a small reseller can't set up a framework where the price they pay is no higher than the price offered to other resellers?
    Other way around. Apple was setting the minimum price with iBooks, and no one else, including Amazon, could sell for less than that price. If the price had been fair, it wouldn't have been an issue, but the bloom fell off the rose as soon as Apple started pricing ebooks well above what they had been selling for previously. Basically, Apple and the four largest publishers colluded to control ebook prices instead of allowing the market to do so on it's own, and I'm sorry to everyone who is upset by this decision, but that is illegal. What Amazon is doing by selling ebooks at a discounted rate is no different than when Apple shook up the music world by selling individual songs for $.99 despite cries from artists and the industry that such low prices were going to kill the music business and cheat artists out of their fair share.

    Always funny to watch brand loyalists drop $3000-$5000 on Apple junk when they can buy a god-like computer with Windows for $1500.00.. 

    Proves Apple fans generally lack technical knowledge and consumer savvy, and are mostly brand loyalists.
    6 years ago I used a crappy Windows notebook that's half the price of my MBA now. The experience was so painful I coughed up the dough and converted to Mac and never looks back. 4 years on and my Macbook Air's still running great. My productivity is going through the roof.
    The consumer savvy will always prefer Mac. They will becomes a brand loyalists. It's the same thing actually.
    6 years ago I owned a dumpy used regular cab that cost a quarter as much as my current vehicle. Comparing the two is just as pointless as you trying to compare that notebook to a Macbook Air that retailed for twice as much, so what were you trying to say, exactly? As for you productivity increasing, I'm not sure exactly what programs you are using because I can kick out an Excel spreadsheet just as fast on my 5 year old Dell at work as I can on my top of the line 27" iMac at home. Granted the pleasure in doing so is much greater on my iMac, but my speed is not a factor of pleasure, but operator prowess.

    And your comments on an Apple related website proves how much of a moronic troll you are.
    And your nasty ad hominem reply proves what, exactly, and furthers the discussion how, Ming?
