more often than not, the following is the general belief:
- android/google is a for-the-people company, providing affordable stuff to people – choices, as they would want to call it
- Apple is closed, absurdly priced evil corporate giant.
is that so?
I’m in no position of saying who is evil – besides, I’d be biased.
There is no such thing as a for-the-people corporation. It is an oxymoronic sentence.
What’s the best contribution a corporation can do to this people-world?
Set new benchmarks in your field, what was not thought possible and doing it – setting new standards. Certainly not by producing mundane, regular, average quality stuff – that is just a company – a business, nothing more.
Apple produces the best quality products – by a far margin, the best. Some may come close (I have not seen though), but nothing matches their finesse – and that is big.
I’m an apple fan but I’d readily become a fan of some other IF there was one. My loyalty is with supreme quality – the option I have available.
Just like mail, the best option out there is gmail – and I love it. Best search is google (but it’s getting muckeir with search, plus your world – whoever came out with that) – and I can’t imagine life without it.
For devices, it is Apple.
Until someone better comes up, my loyalty is with Apple.
ah, and this do no evil, is the most evil cloak I have seen or heard.
Since rejoining the Company in 1997, Mr. Jobs had not sold any of his shares of the Company’s stock. Mr. Jobs held no unvested equity awards. The Company recognized that Mr. Jobs’s level of stock ownership significantly aligned his interests with shareholders’ interests.
That’s dedication and loyalty. That’s putting your money where your mouth is.
Happy to have lived at the same times as Steve Jobs. What a phenomenal personality
