That's been know by merchants for eons - consider the Snake Oil salesmen. So I give you some agreement.
There's also the factors that (1) it's expensive so it must be the best, (2) they can afford to spend waste a lot of money on and I want all the world to see, and (3) they just a compelling need to belong to something - anything - and have "iphone" appended to their emails makes them feel part of something.
It doesn't affect me, because I don't do anything near Apple.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Just wanted to write exactly the same.
Very few people left here in my country developing for apple/iOS.
Most do platform independant frameworks anyway and I am quite sure, Xamarin&Co will be ready and set up when this happens... The big companies will talk to each other.
But on the other side - someone wrote "give the company to google" --- it looks like they surrender anyway... Now with iOS getting the ability to finally (only 12 years after google - that's lightning fast for apple terms) remove apps from the desktop and they even get widgets... wow... not much longer and they might arive in 21st century!
Who cares? It's Apple, so its not like it's of any interest whatsoever!
