“Apple created some of the hottest products of the 21st century, also take the brilliant app store on top of that with which you can buy and install thousands of apps with a click. The devices are easy to use, reliable and look great. Devices, app store and itunes created a cash maschine for Apple and great value for it's users. If Apple wouldn't create such value for the users as they don they wouldn't be where they are now.”
“Exactly, it is expected that the next iPhone will support GSM and CDMA in the same device and there are even rumors that you will be able to pick the carrier on the phone through the app store variation”

“I kind of doubt Apple would go with CDMA for their dual radio if they were in fact planning that. If anything, they'd probably focus on the LTE network Verizon is working on.”
“I wonder why today still so many especially billion dollar technology companies keep releasing tons of not perfect working devices, often with obvious errors or software problems. I don't undestand that. Or Nokia, what did they expect how to survive with such products? They keep producing the oldstyle cellphones or some pumped up fenzy but not working smartphones.”

“billion dollar technology companies keep releasing tons of not perfect working devices,
Because they are under pressure from Wall street to release products and worry about how bug ridden they are later.”
“>there is one place they could get $23 billion if they could only agree how to do it: Internet retailers such as Amazon.com
The money wouldn't come from Amazon or such companies but from regular people who buy because the retailers would just raise the price to cover the taxes.
Beside that in my opinion states should make business easier for internet business and not harder because they are leading the way to the future. Offline retailers must adjust and change. If you would have asked Kodak a couple years ago how things should go you would today still have to take your photo film to the drug store to get your print outs and we wouldn't have digital cameras...or downloadable music...or online news.....”

“No retailers would not raise the price of their product.
There would be an additional state tax tacked onto the bill for anyone ordering the product from California.”

“Exactly. More inflation (except for your wages). .gov won't be satisfied until:
1. You are all utterly impoverished.
2. The few at the top can accumulate enough wealth to purchase entire STATES (Buffett almost can now).
3. All of your rights and freedoms are torn asunder.”
