Yes your right..
When making his caculations about lost profit, he obviously meant you...YOU COMPLETE AND UTTER F**KWIT
Well if I could sell my crap in a box for $100's I'd do it as well! Apple sell good stuff and make more money than creosote, as other posters have pointed out , if this analyst was so smart he would create a start up and earn than 67Billion himself!
Time for an upgrade!
Re: Classic end-of-financial-year splurge
This!! the most insane thing ever, means that we never make any savings!
What you said makes no sense because you are using percentages, if your company makes a 100Billion in revenue , then 2% is a damn sight more than 2% of say a million.
Plus just because they don't spend as much percentage wise as their competitors does not mean they are doing no R&D, apple only has a few products so therefore can concentrate their resouces.
Re: Apple Disappointing
Are you a gibbering idiot? Name me one quarter ONE where Apple has made a loss on its iPhone's, Jesus they can't even make enough of them to sell.
While Apple can look forward to another recording breaking Billion dollar net [profit quarter, some no mark sitting in his mothers basement can go on about how they have lost their mojo! :S
Re: Oh please thise same tired old crap...
Yes because stating a fact is a troll, Tell me why does the S3 look nothing like the S2 and the S4 look like the S3. Hey and the S3 has rounded shoulders and everything....cretin!
Oh please thise same tired old crap...
There were touch screen phones before the iPhone but they were crap. The phone that Samsung was building for Google was a blackberry rip off until the iPhone came along.
What Samsung did was make a phone that looked very very similar to the iPhone, even with similar packaging, to get those people who would have liked an iPhone but could not have afforded it.
The Samsung S2 was the same as those Chinese knockoff you see on eBay, with the court action they knew that they could not keep on doing that stunt which is why the Samsung s3 looks so different , yet the iPhone 4 and 5 are the same just with different dimensions.
And wait for legions of morons going on about rounded corners etc, deliberately missing the point , that it was a design patent, and part of one at that to stop people just making a copycat of their phone.
Apple has not sued Sony or Microsoft or Nokia, for their phones, because they had the good grace to come up with their own damn designs!
As for Apple being envious of the Android market, considering Apple makes more money than anyone in the purely mobile arena and by an immense margin at that ... its laughable
Re: I pity South Korea
I'm sorry but what drugs are you on? The reason why the SK invites the Yanks in is that if the North thought the Americans would not back em, they'd be charging across the DMZ within a week.
Don't remember South Korea kidnapping people to help them teach their spies, this is the worse kind of Liberal whataboutery
April the 1St people! LOL well played El Reg!
Re: Seems strange...
Whether they have backdoor or not, allowing China to put in the communications equipment that our defense and infrastructure rely on is the height of stupidity!
Somethings you don't do , even if they can do it cheaper!
Re: PAF 18 years out-of-date
And as the government runs this country, they can take it back for a £1 and if anyone does not like it, they can argue the toss with the Army, sorted!
Simply thing to do is find the person who is linked to the account receiving the money...remove their genitalia..problem solved
Re: I was reminded of this earlier today ...
Yeah sure you have an iPhone..iof the Maps app was so bad you would have gone to Android, why lie on an internet forum?? And if you reckon that putting in Victoria station give you slone square , your lying through your teeth!
Well if I had gone back 10 years in time..
I would have bought apple shares when they were worth jack, invested in google and picked every 80 Lotto winning combo... 20-20 hindsight is just that ..hindsight!
If your going to post AC
Then at least have the guts to point out , why what he has said is rubbish!
Did anyone read the article??
Although they do the same thing, according to apple they do it in a different way7, which is where they have a problem. The chinese are saying that even though they do it a different way , its still infringing!
Re: Foxconn are in big trouble then...
Did they apply for a patent for it in the US? if no... then...STFU!
Re: Prior art easier than you thought
How the F**K did you get 7 Thumbs up! HOW THE FLYING F**k IS A BOOK PRIOR ART!!
Wouldn't it be better to lay them on there sides with a fan blowing though one end, think like loading cartridges, that way you cut down the vertical size, and the flow from the fans at one end, plus the fans from each intervening Pro will add to the air flow.
The force was strong with this one... RIP
You can always be sure....
That whenever a story showing Apple making sales , that some android peabrain will come along , saying how if you go android you can get cheaper blah blah blah There's a reason why Apple makes billions a year and your commenting on a story about them from your mothers basement!
If you listen closely...
You can hear Steve Jobs laughing his ass off..
what could have been accomplished if he had of paid his fair share in tax rather than making sure he paid as little as possible
Re: maybe it's the idiot to ipad ratio..
What utter rubbish, how exactly do android use their stuff? in their pockets without taking them out?
Just accept it, your stuff is crap and not even robbers want to nick em!
Same old suspects every single damn time..
I'm sorry but IBM, Accenture, Capita G$S , hitachi, EDS etc should be banned from all government contracts ,
jesus we could get better results from using trained monkeys, how they keep getting work , with failure after failure on their books is a national scandal!
Re: If anything..
All you've really shown in that post is that you would get an iPhone if you could afford it. I'd love a Rolls Royce for £10 but that aren't happening either, but guess what I can afford the ford focus which does the same thing but does not look as good.
If Apple phone was rubbish they would have simple gone out of business by now, but they haven't and they continue to make money hand over fist, but you have other cheaper choices to make and constantly whining on about how Apple doesn't make cheaper phones is a waste of your energy and time, just ignore them.
Come on Reg that's got to be a meme in the making
Apple are a niche player and heading towards extinction according to all the haters, so why do you care so much what they do??
"Sky has escaped a serious pounding. "
I see what you did there
Re: Corrupt and Perverse is always a Precedent....
Yes yes now if you can head back to Labour party headquarters and leave the rest of us still paying for the 10 Billions pound NHS IT feck up and the countless other wastes of money that Labour wracked up in 13 years of government , we would all be grateful.
Omnishambles ... OMNISHAMBLES.... 10 Billion pounds wasted and you have the cheek to critque!
Re: Don't peerage titles usually come with an "of..."
I keep reading MLF as MILF ...:D
The reason for this....
Is that china will no longer have physical access to googles servers
We bring instrument technology, yeah we may not be able to launch the sods but we can build the instruments
Losing 40 Million is annoying..
But compared to the 10 Billions spunked up the wall by Prescott and his merry band for the NHS , this is absolute nothing!
Good god by government standards this is a raging success, how much did the court system cost before that was thrown into the bin? 500 Million?
How does it brick the console though?
Surely it will just refuse to run the code? why does it brick the console when it finds something it doesn't understand? is this a security hack to stop ripped games from ever being run?
Surely it should just default back to its original condition ?
Hold on a second, how is this a humliation ? only 140 Million over? thats fucking fantastic for a government system, labours pissed away 10 Billion and counting on the NHS system , ffs 140! we should be celebrating!
What I love about this site.
Is that when it comes to article on space, there is not of the fanboi baiting that you get with the mobile phone articles etc .
Re: I'd like to think
Apple make more money than anyone else from Smartphones, no one even comes close, and while the others all have to compete with the same operating system, apple has its users all to itself.
I have never seen so much utter rubbish posted in my life lol
@KiwiAndy errrr in terms of smartphone mobiles , Apple makes more profit that all the others combined, since when did Samsungs mobile divion make more than Apples??
What drugs are you on, they are making more money than ever before !
What thins like defence, health care, social services , education the things the keep a country running and therefore allow it to spend money on discount books, those kinds of things? Seriously how stupid are you?
Re: Lies, damn lies, and....
@Squander Two OK obviously your young so I'll explain to you how it goes ...
Starbucks have 4.3 Billion of sales.
They make say 2 Billion profits
They then tell the tax man that their head office, Starbucks Luxembourg, charges them 2.1 billion for use of their IP rights.
Starbucks makes no "profit" in UK.
Starbucks has 750 shops and been in this country for 14 years and never made a "Profit"!!
In the case of Amazon you can be damn sure they made profit on their sales, they just ensured that they also made a lost to another whole owned Amazon company!
Re: Do what we want, not what we say
That tax goes to pay for NHS, Defence etc so suck it up!
Re: Do what we want, not what we say
@Jugernautilus , yes they should and until they do how about you and your mates stop cleaning out the posterior of Amazon and encourage them to treating paying tax as a vital part of being a member of this society!
