No, the image author said that. Jobs just agrees with himId get at least one for one of my two netbooks. -but apparently jobs says im i the "zone of suck"? WTF is that BS?
You and the cadre of Netbook nerds don't make up enough of a market for Steve to cater to you. Not sure why people get in a rage over that.
Like the iPhone deal is unique in the cellphone market in the US? Can I get a Palm Pre with Verizon? Can I get a Hero with T-Mobile? Lets not pretend Apple is playing by different rules than anyone else here.Lets not wax to poetic on apple profits, a lot of it came from charging customers ransom on their drm'ed songs and skimming royalties from music artists, not to mention a huge anti competitive deal with att.
As for skimming royalties from artists, record companies have been doing it for decades. The DRM was their idea, not Apple's. I don't consider $9.99 for the average album a ransom when stores still routinely charge up to $16.99 for a CD. And on the plus side, I can hear parts of every song and choose not to buy the crappy ones if I like. Can't return the CD to the store if it's mostly crap.
