  • The most expensive component in apple's products is logo. People are stupid if they buy their products like all clothes from chain markets, sold for 30$ while it takes less than 3$ to produce and deliver it. Fuck them all

  • Load of bullshit on the backdoor. As it already has one. The first thing Jailbreakers found when they jailbroke the iPhone is that apple keeps a file with all your keystrokes, all your locations all your communications and sends it back home. Maybe the problem is that the files where not meant for the USA government but for the Chinese government.

  • In addition to the largely correct (and funny#!) previous comments on this vid... POLY DOES have very good content superb production, and an Echelon Class product in most ways...... eexxxxcceppt the segues, which undercut the capitalist-sceptic-realist message endemic to the content. A necc. evil, to be sure. These increasingly perverse Capitalist Incentive(s) can't last much longer, I don't think.

  • There are only two possible endings: Apple will either leave China or have its assets in China seized by the CCP. That was a given the day they put their first factory in China.

    Jeffrey KalbJeffrey Kalb2 aylar önce
    • That is what I thought is going to happen to western companies that went to China 20 years ago. But no the CCP dosen't want what Apple has but rather what they are going to have - the CCP would rather steal Apple's intellectual property. P.S Many Western companies were given land, had factories built by the CCP and were given free electricity for 5+ years.

  • The rare earth thing xi did was noticed, RE mines are re-opening all over the place, even if the concentration is lower. Especially in the US, they cant afford to let china have control, so mountain pass, as well as others are in pre-production as we speak, as are factories to process the ore. Its a bit of a gold rush. But thats not good for xi, as he will lose the control he has soon. Thats politics baby.

  • *sigh* ...Big companies and the temptations of the Red Dragon..... A neverending story, I guess. But it involves a lot of hypocrisy. I find it irritating (to say the least) that Tim Cook obviously has less trust in the FBI than in the Chinese Communist Party. Or wait! Can it be that the CCP just had more to offer? Sometimes I wonder who will really rule the world 20 years from now. Big Tech or the CCP?
