  • VLC plans AirPlay support for Android as app nears 3B downloads

    I'm honestly surprised by this. I thought the market would have alternatives to AirPlay 2 that were just as good. Is AirPlay 2 really taking the crown in terms of features and performance? If so, congrats to Apple.
    Google Cast is one comparable alternative and the most well-known one. They both accomplish most of the same things but do so a bit differently.

    Except one takes you personal data.
    Strangely, that's a feature (with benefits?) to some people, but even weirder are those even stranger souls who run around the internets shilling for that evil fucking corporation.

    Hint: customers don’t like greedy companies.
    Customers like good products and Apple seems to be meeting those demands, pretty much better than all other companies, so they either disagree with you or they don't care as much as you think.

    And make no money in the process, great recipe for success.

    Perhaps you should stop projecting your own issues onto Apple, its customers and its success, you're really not doing your own credibility here any favours by commenting on business success factors that are refuted so easily by reality. Pricing, product strategy and customer satisfaction aren't the armchair CEO's forte.
    They will care when they loose a big healthy customer base.

    Apple did extremely well before this money grab. This will backfire. How many will return?
    "Apple doom and gloom," one of the internet troll's favourite epithets to hurl. You definitely have a bright future ahead of you in the financial analyst industry, given how astute you seem to be with sales and customer predictions.
    I just listen to the ground. My troll tip for you is that there is a Lot less iPhone sales this quarter.
    You think that proves something? Other than progressing the silly narrative of yours that you are spreading here like shit on shingles, your "inside information" means nothing that you think it means.

    The only way Apple will ever lower the price of it's iPhones is if people stop buying them. But Apple knows there's millions of suckers that need the latest and greatest and will fork down $1k or more for a new iPhone every year.  
    Btw, I'm still using a BB9900. I'm not paying $800 or more for a damn phone!
    "millions of suckers" pale in comparison to the juveniles and trolls who roam the internets so they can declare themselves superior by denigrating others for their purchases.

    As for your BB9900 - who the fuck cares?!
