This. according to Foxconn's(they are not called that but people know them by this name) CEO they gets $2 dollar off one iphone, some Korea company gets $7, Japan company gets $11, while apple gets $200. This was in news in Asia because the CEO is not pleased how much they get payed.

The design department may not be in it for the money, but the company as a whole is most definitely in it for every penny they (over)charge.

Lots of CEO earn that much or some really small amount (to them).
They real earning is from bonus.

Sorry to break your bubble, but people don't get rich by earning $1 per year.

Really? He was a billionair and kept all his money for himself like the selfish, control-freak bastard he was. He made billions from all the Apple shares he held, from the bonuses and even more money from Pixar. I seriously hope you're not believing yourself, he was all about the money.

By the way, a Ferrari, a Maserati, a Lamborghini, etc. has that value because it's rare, not many are made and they're made to be the best, by the bests. An iPhone or an iPad is a mainstream piece of garbage mass-produced by skill-less people in a huge factory so yes, for what you're getting, it's extremly overpriced.

I believe him. The driving force at Apple has always been innovation. Apple has plenty if firsts in the market. I still think their patents should all be burnt.
