quote: Apple's market is pretty much locked in with their fan base
quote: Or that their products break faster
quote: Presumably in secret as Apple consistently tops all reliability and customer satisfaction surveys :)
quote: well, when a company's entire consumer base is a bunch of fanboy fucktards who have achieved ALL of their social status through the apple logos they flaunt around, of course they're going to "say" that the iphone is the best, they don't know any better. It must be quite a scientific study though, I'm sure. so that put in your apple-holy-ness equation and rerun the numbers
quote: We all know you only defend Apple because of your invested interests in the company
quote: This is a technology site... the combined knowledge of people at this site is far superior than your general public iTools
quote: don't you find it interesting that your the only one defending Apple here?
quote: Also interesting is the fact that many people have to sign an NDA to get a product replaced. We've seen cases of this cited here and other places with the exploding/burning iPhones.
quote: that's why Apple's sales keep doubling year after year. I suppose Apple fans must just breed quickly :)
quote: their market share can't say that same
quote: But when someone can make a similar product and sell it for half the price, then that just means that Apple is charging twice as much as they should for the same product
quote: Apple does not have a long history of product innovation - They have had just as much failure as they have success. Remember the Pippin? The Newton? The Mac Mini? Dismal failures.
