A diary of the thought process behind my investment decisions
Who's The Monopolist
In the past Apple often accused Microsoft of using their monopoly power to hurt consumers but it seems to me that Apple is not doing too bad a job of hurting their own customers. Apple forces applications for the iPad and iPhone to be bought through the iStore. They try to make it as difficult as possible for iPod users not to buy music from the iStore. They don't make much of their hardware compatible with SD Cards or other standard devices so that they could sell their own branded hardware for many times the cost. Who is The Real Evil Empire?
