I would rather have the food delivery service give me lower price than donate a meal for every meal I order. #econ101Seems like any profession - To get hired you need to stand out. To stay hired bond in. http://t.co/j3V1TL2nJG@mims @laurenweberWSJ I guess it comes down to who's brand and matters and whether the individuals offer visible differentiated valueIt is not investor interest or customer interest - investor interest cannot be served if customer interests are not.Are you marveling at Apple's cash pile? They belong to its investors, willingly given by rabid fans of their products.
@fmanjoo i remember your piece on this before @mims in @wsj. Commendable you admit that was an error.@rshevlin I am disrupting gurus :)While @gruber wrote 16GB on lowest iPhone6 was bad for customers, $6.2B in net new profit from ASP increase says it wasn'tHere is a lesson for business success - Sell more at higher prices and keep more of what you take in https://t.co/yC79KPuCFa33% of Apple's $18B profit came just from iPhone 6 pricing and introducing iPhone6+. ASP of $687 vs $603 on 74 million iPhones.When you make $18B profit a quarter you can afford to take huge risksSocial media companies rest easy, ACLU is not talking about you https://t.co/fYg3Va4L8LIf u think social media mktg is succeeding, don't let me ruin your delusion.
