Seriously though, that doesn't matter. All it takes is one major thing to turn a $600B company into a $20 one.

I say it's paranoia for the most part. It doesn't help that Apple is a tad on the greedy side.

I would say share holders and their ever increasing demand for more profit would have a lot to do with it.

They have to use everything at their disposal to maximise profits.

$14 per iPhone adds up. Their profit margin is 50%.
With the $14, it would be 48%. That's actually quite an impact. Saying all of Apple's money comes from the iPhone (which is far from the reality) using their current mkt cap, they would have 583.2384B.

Absolutely. It's always been "looking out for number 1" in business. This just happens to be the latest trend of seeing how much MORE a company can make.

1 simple word to describe the situation for them. *COMPETITION*. The competition wouldn't end. Unless the world ends.

Ha ha,after apples shady practices towards samsung what the hell did they expect?? Apple want to patent thin air and charge the world for the privilage. when the shoe is on the other foot they come out crying. i dont agree with all this patent wars - but apple takes the biscuit and i hope samsung charge them an extortionate fee to use samsung tech (after all samsung did develop it ) something Apple fails to understand tehy just rip off everyones tech and patent it as their own. What goes around comes around - go samsung charge the cretins a premium smile.gif
