    1. Apple succeeds for the same reason Starbucks succeeds: by getting the average consumer to triple or quadrouple the amount they would otherwise normally spend on an item, without drastically increasing its production costs. People who once upon a time thought of a $1,000 laptop as a very expensive purchase now own a Mac Book Pro, costing upwards of $3,000 in many cases. And Apple probably earns 10x the profit on that machine that the $1,000 laptop maker earns.

  3. Hi Bas,

    How quickly could Google lose all this money though?! If Bing out bid them on Safari, Firefox, iPhones etc, Bing will be the leading search engine provider!

    I will give it 5-7 years before Bing dominates. They already have their foot in the door with many smartphones.

    Thanks Bas. Kev Massey from SixtyMarketing.
