Apple phones are overpriced... & people buying them are therefore getting ripped
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2012stupid communists have a reunion of poor frustated people here:go live in cuba or north korea ... moreever wonder why apple makes a lot of profit? because the apple minimizes costs by purchasing cheap material, making the ultimate CHEAP iphone!!! ahahaah
pagani zonda and brabus are overpriced too. and adidas is overpriced
no one is ripped if he choose to enter in an apple store and spend his/her money after his/her own taste and needs. my imac is overpriced but is a real pleasure to touch and use it any second

Tim Cook has been highlighted previously regarding his brilliance in logistics and negotiating the best prices for components as well as maximizing efficiency, which is also made easier with Apple purchasing massive quantities.
Iphone is a hype., 07 Aug 2012Iphone is a hype. I never thought it was worth the money that's why I never bought it. No valu... moreWhat about actually owning one?
All i see is typical iHater craptalk, you clearly say you havent owned iPhone, still you say all that about iPhone...

"So while everyone likes to point out that Android devices are outselling iOS devices, when it comes to making money off these devices, Apple is way ahead of everyone else."
How is this good from a user point of view? On the contrary it just shows what a rip-off apple is, and how much margin their product sells at. From am economic standpoint, Id love being an Apple shareholder at this point of time, high margins and high volumes, wow, dream combo, everyone else should just move on, wondering when this apple fad will get over.
Alui, 07 Aug 2012People should understand that ideas are worth more money than physical objects.indeed, but which idea's? pushing u to go all the way to the moon and back just to change ur ringtone?
taking away the freedom to browse ur files without jail-breaking ur phone?
stupid communists have a reunion of poor frustated people here:go live in cuba or north korea you communists! what is your problem if i want to spent my money on apple products? what do you want? stick on your cheap plastic toy made by capitlist from south korea
If their profit is really that big, it only means that all apple products are way overpriced than the other manufacturers
to who ever wrote this article: why r so happy that apple is the best at making money. this means that more ppl r bein ripped off by a device that is not worth its high price.
Apple are greedy and over charge for a device that can do less than an Android phone. Don't like Apple at all
beckon, 07 Aug 2012That my friend is called good business. ...yes Apple does very good business. they are in the business of exploiting people after all. thats where they excel at.
Max, 07 Aug 2012Actually most manufacturers only provide 12 months warranty and the 2nd 12 months is covered b... moresorry to disappoint but if you do your homework or work in mobile retail youll know they do.So well done for being wrong.They rotten fruit has scrambled your tiny mind.Apple do not exchange if youve water damaged it.FACT
Mr Maz, 07 Aug 2012Apple offer the waranty and service you would expect from a premium priced retailer. So does other any other company.
Absolute nonsense, the difference is that Apple don't publicise it so to make a statement like that shows a lack of research done on your part.
