More nonsense from Scott Moritz who must be getting paid by the reader (why else would he fabricate ridiculous claims like this?): TheStreet:
Call it hardball or capitalism in its purest form, but Apple’s autocratic approach to business and the current sway its products have in the market have been nothing but punishment for other players.
Fair enough. But isn’t that called competition?
Sure, to the winner go the spoils and all that—Apple shares are up ten-fold in the past 10 years. But unlike past stock rockets riding surging tech trends, Apple’s rise has not been particularly uplifting for investors outside Apple.
Who’s being killed? Nokia, RIM, Microsoft, Intel and friends. The problem?
Apple has demonstrated a deft hand at making products that people enjoy. The new iPhone, for example, doesn’t have the best parts available. In fact it doesn’t measure up to the Google Android-powered HTC Verizon Incredible and the Sprint EVO phones, which are superior machines.
Superior? In what way? Screen size? Megapixels? Those poor iPhone customers just don’t know what they’re missing, huh, Scott? Listen, if you’re such a great analyst, why can’t you figure out why customers prefer Apple’s inferior products to those superior products you love so much?
