Apple "Apple's new iOS 7, which the company unveiled last week at its Worldwide Developer Conference, says a lot about the future of mobile devices because Apple owns the future of mobile devices." If you're an Apple fanatic, you're going to love this article. If you're not an Apple fanatic, you'll be shaking your head in disbelief that the once great AppleInsider runs stuff like this these days. Hey, there's always MacRumors - the last great bastion of proper Apple rumour reporting.

Amazon has already done it, why not others? Google would be wise to worry, and wiser to exert some more control over their platform before it gets away from them.


Amazon is really little more than a sophisticated Ponzi scheme with Jeff Bezos as the main beneficiary. Amazon doesn't makes a profit. It will almost certainly never be a sound investment because its "business plan" relies on selling items below cost (if you include shipping costs) and avoiding sales tax. This creates a massive but unsustainable market. If Amazon charged the real costs of its' products its' market would collapse overnight.
