Love it or hate it, Apple's business model works, and is worth following it. If you want Apple, you need to like OS X or iOS, period. If you don't like or can't like (like me), stay away (like me). Honestly, Apple hardware is not the best in the market, it's their software that matters if you care.
Some people have no respect for money and buy those things.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2018It shows what clever ad campaign can do for a company.It shows that people are stupid enough to buy an overpriced product then get Apple care to save money incase they drop it..
So it bumps the Apple profits.. short term..

Sad facts, 01 Aug 2018You may say so for iPhones. But not true for Macbook Pros / MacOS. It can connect to linux ... moreYou forgot softwares like garagaband and pro tools which are Mac exclusive and musicians can't do shit without them these days.

But not true for Macbook Pros / MacOS. It can connect to linux / Macs / PCs / with ease. Work on any IDEs, use any software. IT professionals and programmers ultimate tool. VPN / SSH / socks whateva shit.
PC laptops suck big time. Good if your environment is all "Windoze" ONLY. Prone to lag, Big bulky useless. Connect to Linux via SSH uses clunky Putty / WinSCP software. It just does not cut it.. but Hey.. its popular in IT thou.. because its dirt cheap.. and most have no choice because its provided by company for "security", ROFL.

But yeah. Apple devices Are expensive as h***, but They work very nicely. And if you have money why not. Apple is Also very good to those that Are not so good with computers because They just work and Are easy to use. But not all Apple users Are unable to use Computers and technology. There Are Many professionals too, so don`t bash them!
I get my equipment cheaper From different manufacturers, but if I would have a lot of money, I would definitely consider to buy them myself too. (Depending on what I wan to do ofcourse)
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2018They give 5 watt charger for 1000$ phone. They can make more money if they ship 3watt charger ... moreEven better, why bother to supply a charger at all? Make it an accessory and call it AIR PLUG. Apple can save even more money by not including it with the phone and then, can make even more money selling it as an accessory.
Then, the fanboys would laud Apple for its innovative idea and would happily buy AIR PLUGS as an accessory.
Android has 85% market share and Apple only has 15% BUT Apple gets 90% of profit whereas other manufacturers only get 10%.. This concretely shows that Apple's products are overpriced and the increase in sales per year shows that they successfully stole the money from their fans yet again
Homer-Simpson, 01 Aug 2018Apple still increases and growing ... Nokia still going down ...nice joke

Syel, 01 Aug 2018Hope they'll spend some of that revenue towards some "innovation"! So tired of all the same ol... moreIn the last 4 years:
64bit CPU, Fingerprint scanner, 3d face unlock that works in the dark, telephoto lens, dual camera set up for portrait mode, 4k60fps, OLED that folds inwards, split battery, double layer motherboard, TruTone flash and display, advanced taptic engine, stereo speakers using the front earpiece, stainless steel frame, fastest mobile CPU that can beat an i7.
What more do you expect? Half-baked features just for the sake of innovation? It difficult to be reliable, have a clean design and be innovative at the same time. Do you think Apple can't add underscreen fingerprint scanner? Or make a motorized camera like NEX? These technologies have not matured yet.
They give 5 watt charger for 1000$ phone. They can make more money if they ship 3watt charger next time.
Apple still increases and growing ...
Nokia still going down ...
What’s the point of hating on a winner like Apple?
Why not rejoice with those that rejoice.Perhaps if you have a family working at Applei believe you will embrace their financial record.if you think Apple products are not good why and yet they are still making sales,Does that mean 41M people are dumbs?
This is not surprise for me. Apple's main market is a country which is number one in economics.
