  1. Because they own their fabs and make all their own dies, they cant use TSMCs
  2. A company that did things that would cause companies nowadays to be literally destroyed by international governments, they are a bad example in every way
  3. Well I mean basically owning countries does make you worth a lot of money.
  4. And just in, they did reach a market valuation of 1 trillion
  5. That was an incorrect market in evaluation, its stock dropped by a huge amount very soon later, its basically .Cmon you know what I mean. They got well above predicted sales and are having very steady growth, theres almost nothing that can stop them from reaching 1 trillion unless the market crashes, and the results of that would be much much more disastrous than Apple not reaching an evaluation of 1 trillion. The only semi reasonable example was the East India Company, which was basically an unregulated de facto state that basically owned the East Indies. Thats like if Apple literally owned the parts of China that produce its products, so really its a pretty bad example.
  6. Become the first company in the world to be worth a trillion dollars, which while it hasnt happened yet is certainly going to happen in under a year
  7. If the majority of the shareholders want them to do it, they legally have to do it. That is the law, law is still law even in theoretical situations. You dont seem to understand how a publicly traded company works, they have to act as their shareholders say they want to. Its how Steve Jobs got fired, then rehired. A public company isnt just the company, its also all the people who own shares in it, and if the company doesnt act in the way their shareholders want to then they can be in big big trouble, and the board of directors who made the decision not to listen to the shareholders would almost certainly be kicked out of their positions by the shareholders.
  8. Sometimes I feel like the only person in this whole forum that likes mainstream stuff
  9. My course is due in 7 hours and Im dying, why does our government make us take such a useless course.

    1. Lolucoca


      What kinda course? 

    2. Clanscorpia


      @Lolucoca A careers course, I finally finished at 3:30 AM

  10. Were going through one over in the colonies and Im struggling through rowing. I have to bike 9 kilometers to get there and by the time I get there Im literally dripping before a 2 hours practice. And the humidity, oh god the humidity. You could drink the air
  11. Taking a school course online using an 8 year old website is awful

  12. Its because they dont know if youre just checking the time or not. Its not the fact that you are doing it, its that you might be doing it.
  13. I dont think its the whole checking the time thing, but the fact that a lot of people when checking the time on their phones will drift off and look at other things. In something like a buisness meeting, many would find it very unprofessional
  14. Because checking the time on a watch is much more proffesional then pulling out a phone
  15. Sure its unethical but that doesnt mean they shouldnt be allowed. Lots of things are unethical but that doesnt mean they should be illegal because it might not be unethical to everyone or for every case. And its not that its not allowed they just dont do it.
  16. Okay... And why is that a reason to ban it? If you dont agree with it dont buy it
  17. Why would you ban them? Its not like preordering hurt anyone. Why get the government involved into something it doesnt need to be? Like seriously, what benefit comes from the government banning preorders.
  18. This is the key thing many people are missing here. It is a private service. You have no right in the Constitution to have access to an ISP, as you said, its just a service. While I dont agree with ISPs limiting content at all, they are a private business supplying a private service that you pay for, something you dont have the right to.
  19. The difference between the US and Europe is the distance the trains are taking. The US is only slightly smaller than the continent of Europe, meaning the trains are going much much greater distances. You also have to take into consideration where the population is. On both sides of the US theyre generally in between mountains and the ocean, with little room to grow except up. This means putting trains in is almost impossible because of space limitations. Same thing on the west coast, where there is huge spans of mountains separating everything
  20. Because the geography of the US makes is literally impossible to do, and the fact that it would cost trillions on trillions of dollars to route it in a way that didn't destroy property in the process
  21. Because not everyone wants to customize their phone. I thought I'd want to change everything, but really everything is so much easier when it just works, and it works amazing. Sure theres a few flaws, but considering I used my iPhone 4S up until 6 months ago, those flaws are a lot less apparent then a Samsung phone from the same time. The camera thing is also quite true if you go back a few years, which most people are at unless youre rich. My friend has an S7, and his photos look god awful compared to the camera in my 6s. iPhone cameras are very forgiving, and make life very easy. Apple just works, and thats why everyone who has no interest in diving deep into their phones gets one. Also the thing about specs... it really doesnt matter with an iPhone, because everything is so well optimized, you dont need to throw in 6 gigs of RAM because you'd never use it, and the iPhones have never been generations behind Androids, with the only real reason being the different release cycle between them.
  22. The whole point isn't that it doesn't limit things, its the aftermath of the war and the consequences that would come with them. A country isn't stopped right when it break the convention, it's the aftermath that causes actual impact. There's a reason there's such a massive reaction to any use of chemical weapons. Any formal breaking of international law would cripple any country like China that is still trying to get a hand in the world stage. The US has never technically violated the Geneva convention. China using a weapon that purposefully blinded people would get a very harsh reaction.
  23. Because China is a permanent member of the UN security council, they have a veto on any type of military action the UN might take. Basically they can shut down anything that happens in the UN that has to do with the military. You might remember Russia using this power when the UN was going to take action in Crimea. They would lose this power which is a huge asset. The Treaty of Versailles ruined post war Germany, making them pay extreme debts, and limiting any type of economic activity they might try. China would surely lose their spot as one of the top economies in the world with the amount of sanctions that would be against it for breaking such a universally accepted treaty.
