And Best Buy is hurting because of Apple, not because Best Buy has high prices, shitty customer service, and a stigma of being a store for chumps.

I actually stepped foot in a BB yesterday, for the first time in several years. It was a ghost town, with a lot of employees standing around talking to each other.

They are soooooo screwed.

So ATT is hurting because of Apple and not the huge deal that fell flat on it's face with T Mobile or the myriad of other things it does to piss people off.

And Best Buy is hurting because of Apple, not because Best Buy has high prices, shitty customer service, and a stigma of being a store for chumps.

Let's see.....rival phone makers. How many different offerings do they put out each as a company? Of course they are going to have higher operation costs, they put out more phone designs, more often.

And the rest of it is basically companies being concerned they won't make their money back on plans to pay for the iPhone they sell at a loss with their agreements. Well stop doing it and you won't have to be concerned. Offer non-subsidized phones and lower your plan rates.....which they won't do because they continue to milk people who don't upgrade their phones to the most expensive thing every time it's possible to do so.


Apple is bad for a whole lot of other reasons, these are basically companies looking for a scapegoat for stupid decisions and bad business plans.


Now if you want to look at Apple helping companies collude, price fixing, and generally being a bunch of dick heads exploiting foreign workers......you've got lots of material to show it's a bunch of bad stuff that hurts consumers.

This is a creative process. Apple will fall again and the rest of the market will be stronger for having been lean for so long. Then Apple might rise again, etc etc..

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
