quote: OK, enthusiests... But the point remains. What we care about is the products we can buy. Who gives a crap if Apple, Google Samsung or anyone else made a profit or lost money on it? Its just a silly thing to keep bringin into the conversation about tech products."Product A has this that and the other feature and it cheaper than product B""Product B has only this and that feature, its missing the other but it has this and that better, that is why it costs more""So, the company from product B makes more profit"It just doesnt fit.
quote: Wow, Apple stock dipped as low as $485 Wednesday, now at $502, way down from the peak of $705. Bummer.Oh what a difference a few months makes. Remember how Apple was "most valuable company in history?" Look at INFLATION-ADJUSTED market cap today--MS is champ at $800B, poor Apple is just about $470B, behind MS, GE, Cisco, and Intel. Double bummer.
