You are driven no matter what you do to the iTunes store and that is as good a market capture as has ever been seen As for a smart phone with touch screen, well Palm was there first now weren't they. Yet you have the nerve to call me uninformed.
You are the one who brought Jobs into this discussion, not me, but feel free to backpedal all you want.
Very easy for you to talk about hatred isn't it. You are being taken to task over your lack of knowledge and that's the best rebuttal you can come up with? Your complete inability to comprehend Apple's business model and the product line resulting from that is mind boggling.
Troll on somewhere else, I am done polluting this thread with responses to your lack of industry knowledge.
And your attitude clearly indicates that you know nothing about the market and are just a typical PC fanboy. My username could be "Dragon-Ball-Demon," but that doesn't make me a demon. Am I lying that I don't have any Apple products, and that overall, I believe that the competition is actually better? Want pictures for proof? LOL.
If you want to credit Palm for touchscreen devices, you might want to look up something called the Apple Newton. Does Apple get credit for Palm's devices now? Not in your world, you'll just spin this into something else. Capacitive multitouch? How is your smartphone today if it used a stylus and had single touch functionality?
As for iTunes, you really think that people buy 100s of millions of i-devices for ITUNES?! I hate to break it to you, but there are millions of people who buy iPhones and iPads and avoid using iTunes at all costs. Since the 21st century, Apple's profits have always primarily been derived from its hardware sales.
This is my final response on this subject because there is no point in trying to educate an ignoramus who calls someone else the troll when he's the one who began flinging mud at Apple. When you make laughably ignorant and raving statements, don't be too surprised to be called out for them. Take it to Youtube or limit your emotional rants to one-liners - like "Apple is the devil, sucks!" - that warrant no response.
