((((Got it)!) or ((Got it)?))!)?
Well, I've given this thought but not too much thought.
I've given it consideration but not too much consideration.
And concluded but not too much of a conclusion that an ad based Apple OS is probably the best way to get Apple technology to the masses.
You buy your kit at premium rates = no ads
You buy your kit at grossly discounted rates and Apple makes up the difference with its ads in the OS campaign.
Niche marketing with cutting edge or wot!
Droolable way to get Apple stuff out there into the discount world yet at the same time keep Apple's brand high, high, high and higherer.
Yes, I've just gone from #2 purchaser to #3 purchaser and it is a lot better without al the ads?
Elitism maintained, nurtured, fostered and Done!
And! If it does not work well, it can be stopped in the second year and Apple's reputation has not been harmed but might have been empathised by its user base as a way to evangelise and promote its reson de etre ((?)!)
