    Sridhar Ananthanarayanan, May 12, 2017 :
    1. We innovate. We lead.
    2. We make performance oriented, premium products.
    3. We make our customers happy. So they keep coming back to us.
    4. We are the most valuable company on Earth, our competitors and even others are way behind.
    5. We prosper, and those who partner with us, prosper with us.
    6. Our products are unique. When you see an iPhone, you know you saw an iPhone.
    7. Our products and technology are proprietary. We are not a charitable organization.
    8. We give back to our society via our corporate responsibility program.
    9. Our shareholders are a happy lot. Those who missed us, regret what they missed.

    Point of this thread Sridhar? Apple is now a 800 Billion + (First company in the world to be so) in market cap so they have all the rights to boast about it, but that wouldn't make them less greedy. They have 256 billion+ in the cash reserves but the people who make those products work in pathetic conditions!

    Just a FYI http://www.bbc.com/news/business-30532463

    This should also be a Apple Fun Fact too don't you think?

    first and only company to achieve that feat. they have earned that status by creating a highly successful business model, making quality products and more importantly marketing them extremely successfully.

    why do you talk about greed? who doesn't want to be more successful, make more money? do you call that greed?

    they need to address those issues. these issues are plaguing every company in the market. it is wrong of you to single out one company just because it is very profitable.

    every company employs per market standards and it is the government's duty to ensure that working standards are strictly enforced.

    yet, agree that companies like Apple must take the lead here too in addressing such problems.

    it is more a China fact than Apple fact.

    Sridhar Ananthanarayanan, May 12, 2017 :
    a company that makes a product, need not necessarily make all the components too. they buy their components from various sources, including companies that are competing with them. Apple buying displays from Samsung means both companies are benefiting.

    some features have been removed for security reasons, some for paving way for a different component, etc.

    in the end, what matters is what the customers feel about the end product. if they are happy, that is all that should matter.

    on the battery front, everyone knows iPhone battery lasts really well, longer than competition.

    important to have an open mind. it is a free world and you can make your choices, as long as we understand that our choice is what fits our requirements best. people often tend to mistake this fact.

    You have tried to open others' minds multiple times already. Then you categorically deny every criticism about Apple logically or illogicaly, or by delving into the future, so much for an open mind!
    At this point it frankly makes no sense. You want to praise Apple, do it on a blog and you even might get paid for it. You're a fanboy of the highest order, though you will deny it surely. If people here could afford or want an apple device, they would have bought one, so your fun facts will not be appreciated here.
