My two —usually useless— comments:
1— ASK THE CUSTOMERS! We paid around $1,000- for an iPhone because it gives us ‘security and privacy.’
The people that ask for side loading are: politician looking for votes; developers trying to avoid paying for Apple's IP; sellers and business looking to get into the ‘golden garden’ without paying anything; ad seller looking to track users…
The FCA, FCC, EU, et als should do a poll: The telcos have the numbers, ask users —by OS— what they want!
2— Apple could sell a ‘Yellow iPhone’ —as the Product RED—. It must be clearly distinguished as what it is: a side-loading device… Apple will take no responsability in anything that happens with the device —other that physical, but many users will break it when everything is stollen from them!—.
ASK THE CUSTOMERS! THEY PUT THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR HEART IS!
I won't say that ‘big tech are different each other’ o ‘all are the same’… but for me there is a big difference between a big tech as Apple —as an example— that you pay $1,000- for the device… and a big tech as Facebook/Google/etc. that just ‘take your privacy and data as payment’ —and yes, we ‘also decide to use them’—.
He is just trying to sell its book! Almost the only thing that remains of his company past!
Do he remember that he said to sell everything on Apple and give back the money to shareholders?
Did he remember that when Apple surpassed Dell in cap value… Steve Jobs refused to mock him saying: “Things come and go”?
Cheap marketing action!
Nice story. A Piper 1940 is a nice plane! I used to fly noe by 1970.
In Argentina, in those times we flight ‘by the rails’ —following the railroad tracks—. Railroad stations had painter the name in the roof so pilots ‘knew’ where they were!
It would also be nice to hear the view of an actual 767/777's pilot.
It is quite intriguing to me the ‘time’ of this news.
Of course, it is almost clear the the WSJ appears to live on finding bad thing on Apple.
But after the Judge said that ‘Apple is not a monopoly in mobile games but it is at risk of being’… then someone makes a ‘report’ that mixes mobile/console/PCs.
Apple's earnings on iOS games is huge… but it is not a monopoly.
And all that comes after console makers and games stores reduced their commissions… so they earn less. (Apple's earning were huge event then.)
Success is not illegal. (But makes others hate you!)
