Wow... Gruber is bragging about how much Apple gouges their customers.

Only AAPL shareholders should be proud of this figure... customers, not so much.

And Thiel is right about innovation. Pricing and scamming your customers is not innovation.

Gruber's just mad at Thiel because he's a winner and Gruber's a fucking alcoholic loser with a whale of a wife that he probably doesn't even fuck anymore.

Stay salty, Gruber! And kys with alcohol one of these days and ease your pain.

Thiel's right. The iPhone 8 will get a new design and be improved in many ways, but it won't be a revolution.

The problem with Gruber filing this away for a smug post in the fall is that 'innovation' is poorly defined. No matter how insignificant, Gruber will point to whatever changes Apple includes in the iPhone 8, call them innovation and declare victory.

Also, I can't imagine how small one's penis must be to maintain a claim chowder file.

claim chowder is a simple process that effectively writes itself at little effort.

Rather like most of Gruber's content.

And keep in mind folks that Gruber will just change his post any time he feels like it to always appear correct.

He is so concerned about being wrong and will never own it.

The man has no balls, no backbone, no honesty or ethics.

Anytime he pulls this "claim chowder" bullshit I feel like he is mentally just a small child in an adult body.

Ladies and gentleman, this came up in another thread, but I wanted to make sure you were all aware of it. Okay, here goes:

Thank god we're back on Apple stuff.

Has there been any psychological research on how people are so negative on Apple. It's been that way for practically ever.

Apple doesn't "gouge customers." Customers are willing to pay that price. Maybe you're not willing to. Maybe you think people who are willing are foolish. Regardless, Apple doesn't, and can't, charge customers more than they are willing to pay.

@jimothy:

You're right, this has been the case up until now, but I think that's all about to change. I am convinced that Tim Cuck's plan is to get Trump to issue an executive order that mandates the use of Apple products throughout the kingdom. Then the era of Apple gouging will have truly begun.

Maybe you'll be proven right, and we'll all be using $3,000, made-in-the-USA iPhones, with big, beautiful screens, mandated by the Affordable Phone Act.

agree with jimothy, gouging is when you charge $5/gallon for gas because there's a hurricane coming and people need gas to get out of town. $10/hotdog because there was a natural disaster and no one has food. apple is charging what the market will bear, there's no gouging happening. people are free to buy whatever they want.

You're a sucker. I bet you're a type of a beta cuck who loves getting fucked in the ass by everyone. What a loser.

@anonymous,

It doesn't sound like you really agree with me, then, as I wouldn't call those examples gouging, either. They also are examples of balancing supply and demand.

If gas prices go up before a hurricane, it's because demand, relative to supply, has gone up. Demand will outstrip supply whether gas is $2/gallon or $5/gallon. Actually, demand will be higher, and supply lower, at $2 than at $5. So the price should rise, and preventing it from rising is not going to mean more people get to fill up their cars because, once again, demand is higher than supply.

$5 gas may mean more people get gas because, at that price, people will economize and pump just enough gas to get to a cheap station inland. And, as mentioned before, $5/gallon will encourage more supply.

If gas sells at $5/gallon before a hurricane, it's only because that's the price the market will bear. Gas station owners charge $5/gallon every day if they could, but they can't. They can only charge $5/gallon if drivers are willing to pay for it. An impending hurricane raises the need for gas, and thus the price, but it does not change economic reality.
