1) They have no understanding of the word compatibility. Chargers have become near universal among many mobile devices, except Apple. To make it even worse, they rolled out the iPhone 5 which is now not even compatible with their own older chargers.

2) They're always overpriced as all hell. From their computers to their phones they are always more expensive than any other model. Of course this can also be the fault of their clientele who always take the bait hook, line, and sinker.

3) They don't "fix", they "replace". Most computers running Windows or Linux OS's that have problems can get fixed, from sending them in for repair to using an antivirus or malware scanner (inb4 "Macs don't get viruses", because no one wants to waste the time to write a virus for a Mac, viruses for Windows do damage to more people). Apple's mindset, both employees and customers, is "oh it broke, time for a new one", referring to point number 2, their prices don't help.

4) As a final point, let's talk about what happens when customers have finally had enough of the product. Apple users who have had enough of Apple commonly switch to Windows. Windows users who have had enough of Windows very rarely switch to Apple.

Some people hate Apple because the internet told them to. Other people do research.

Are you illiterate

I understand what investors are, that's not the point. Your exact words were "If they [companies] make a decision its because they think it will get them more money in the short run or long run," which would mean that any decision they make is made without regard to helping or hurting others unless it will affect their profit margin. Thus helping stock holders by growing the company would then be either a side-effect of the company's activity, or something they decide to focus on because it will benefit their business in some way, because they, according to you, are only concerned about making more money, ergo acting selfishly.

This pins your belief to being that all companies only act with regard to their own interest, which is a belief a cynical asshat would have.

Except that's not what you said.

According to you, the head's of companies make decisions based solely on whether or not they will make money off of it. They are, then, helping stock holders only as a means of helping themselves. Or, to put it in other words, looking out only for their own interests. Which is coincidentally exactly what a cynic believes people are motivated by.

It doesn't matter who a person steps on or helps if, in the end, that person is only doing so to help themselves, as you implied about companies.

Erh, giving all your employees (Not just the hard working ones) a bonus that is money (And not some product etc they can get their hands on cheap) is always just extra expense and never something you can get profit out of, sure it adds to morale, but in this case if they give it to all, not just the most productive ones people will not think they need to work harder, since all of em are getting it anyway. And in this case they are also taking it out of advertisement budget, surely a well done add would bring more profit than giving out money..

Its not cynical. By making the most money tehy can, they help those who are investing in their company which is a lot of people i might remind you. More than the number of employees working there certainly

Obviously, because no company can run without making profit, or at least keeping the account on +. The difference is how you do it, how you treat the people that work for you, what you sell? And for the record, there is shitload of companys that make very little extra after all the expenses and they are still shit ton nicer to their workers than companys making millions and millions of ++++ vs expenses.

And on this note, giving your employees more money just as a bonus is in no way beneficial to any company ever. So they are likely good guys on this case...
User avatar #34 - lumpymandude (12/13/2014) [-]
You are confused sir. All companies are out to make the most money they can. I t is the basis of capitalisim. If they are giving out bonuses, it is becaasue they think it will make their employees more willing to work hard to get it.
