This proposed type of breakup never makes sense. The breakup of Facebook and Google and Twitter should be to create five (or ten) separate and identical Facebooks or Google or Twitter. Just separating Instagram or WhatsApp does nothing to help consumers or reign in the monopolistic powers of the companies.
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?
