PA know that you iboys know all those "facts" in the article. This article is not meant for you. It's meant for hunting new zombies, and mostly to write "news" about Apple, even if there IS NOT A SINGLE NEWS from Apple.

To be fair, the article was quite good. The Rockerfeller owned oil companies that influence US invasions abroad is financially less powerful than Apple. Do you think Apple is resisting the urge to influence US foreign policy and trade legislation with that kind of financial muscle? Remember Obama veto a legal ruling against Apple?

You forgot some more interesting facts. Apple started the $100 per storage upgrade (Apple is using that motto to the fullest when it comes to sales, 'a sucker is born every minute'). Another useful fact, they have the highest ratio for cost to sale price of any smartphone.

Street Jobs is the name the homeless iPhone fans use for Steve Jobs. In the mythos of the street people, they believe Steve Jobs originally grew up on the streets, that he is really one of them. When faced with tough situations, it is not uncommon for homeless iPhone users to ask themselves, "What would Street Jobs do?"

My motto when it comes to Apple: shut up and take my money.

Over $560 billion is definitely not a joke. But such a small marketshare making $560 billion for it; is. Almost the entire world needs oil and the profits of oil companies shows this dependence on it. However, only 16% percent of the world that uses wireless devices purchase Apple products yet its profits equal what almost the entire world contributes to oil. Somebody is paying way too much for a phone. I'm not talking $199 vs $199. I'm saying that Apple has gotten away with putting the least expensive, outdated components into its products and selling at the price of handsets the most advanced handsets offer. One example: 4 inch screens are pennys on the dollar. Apple has been able to rehash this screen on newer handsets yet charge the same as if it was standard. I used to be a diehard Apple user years ago. I am not regretting leaving the Apple camp. Switching to Android has allowed me the most up to date offerings at the same price or even lower than an Apple product. The customization is far superior and there is very litttle I can't do. And I don't even have to root the device. People have complained that Sprint makes all these promises on its network yet keeps people waiting. Hypocritically, the same people that own iphones, feel it's ok for Apple to do the same thing. Yes, it eventually comes but at what price did all the Apple users pay out before it does? John B.
