Why Klobacher wants to tear down a great American company that is leading in the global economy is beyond me. Apple built and invested in its ecosystem. It was not the product of anticompetitive behavior. As with any large company with strong branding and a loyal customer base, it gets to leverage its customer base. Tiles complaint appears baseless. We are not talking about monopolistic pricing because Apple doesn’t have a monopoly in trackers. Nor can Tile complain that Apple has erected barriers to Tiles entry into the market. Tile is complaining that a new entrant to the market has a large established customer base. But the bottom line is Apple is consistently a late entry in markets. It just consistently builds a better product for consumers- a goal of competition. Is Tiles position that the Congress should prevent large established companies from competing by making better products? Nice to know Apple didn’t whine when it batted Big Blue and Microsoft.
