    I mean I walked to my Business Stats Final and it was freezing and gray, yet yesterday it was nice and cool.
    I live in one of the mid-Atlantic states. Georgia weather isn't that different than here just a few degrees warmer usually.

    Maybe in your mind it wouldn't diminish the brand. But In the real world with real people, it would diminish the brand (not to mention profit most likely). You can argue that people who feel that way are elitist or snobs or morally bankrupt but that doesn't change human nature.
    So people who buy iPhones would atop because there is a cheaper option? That is silly.

    This counts as a personal attack, in my opinion.

    Simply put, do not carry on this path any longer...

    We all have our opinions and lets just respect that not all of them are right, much less free of criticism. We all have dealt with criticism at some point in our lives. It's just life.

    We don't just agree to criticize a certain someone's comments, but if they make little sense and deserve rebuttal, there will be criticisms.

    This is a public forum, that is just the nature of it all.

    State your points but let it be about the discussion only.

    I am failing that class, changing my major too. Business ain't the life for me. Changing to a degree in Nursing. Already have hospital experience.
    I was a nursing major changed my junior year and finished my Management Information Systems degree in one year. I had to go to summer school. I guess we are the opposite lol. Good luck with nursing. I liked it but just didn't think I wanted to do that my whole life. It's hard on your body.

    Anyone picking up that new Ferrari mini van when it comes out? 30,000 fully loaded comes with all low end materials and does not have all the key items you've come to expect from Ferrari.... See how silly that sounds?

    No. I'm going to cancel my Ferrari order and go with Lamborghini. Ferrari just doesn't have the image I want to project anymore.

    Maybe so, maybe not. But it would happen. And I'd be willing to bet that Apple has considered a low-end phone and determined that they would lose too many of their existing customers and not be able to make it up with volume for low-end
    Models.

    You know people younger than me regularly participate here?

    Growing up in the projects, and the hood, moving to Atlanta and making it to the suburbs and making it to college have instilled me with a lot more experience than a lot of people twice my age. I have experienced the real world, as in being scared to walk down certain areas around my own home. Being jumped, beaten and robbed is my experience.

    The fact you had no clue what my age was until I said something says how mature I really am. But that escaped you, you just want another reasont to insult me.
    Oh boo freakin' hoo...lol. You're 20...you haven't seen sh*t kid. You're barely old enough to vote and buy cigarettes. Half the stuff you're listing are just normal things people achieve in life...do you want some kind of award for it? Give me a break. Ever been shot? lol...hurts, but I wouldn't tell you I know how the world works because I have. Ever been to war? I wouldn't dream to say I'm some expert at all things because I've seen a war zone...or that I have a degree (two actually), or that I'm almost twice your age.

    No, I'm no expert, but when it comes to experience...sorry kid, but you've got some time left before you can start talking about what you've seen. You were just recently in high school for god's sake! LOL! And you're coming in here telling me how businesses like Apple are supposed to run? I wouldn't trust you with a hot dog stand, much less my own business...and we're still in a different league than Apple.

    Maybe they haven't considered the low end yet, we have not considered maybe Apple hasn't had the idea to do so yet, or are waiting for a better time to do so. This thread was just for speculation and talk.

    I have nothing but respect for nurses. So good luck. But failing out of business school probably goes a long way to explaining why you don't understand Apple's business decisions.

    None of us are privvy to Apples boardrooms so this is all speculation and my failing business school has zero details that were given to you and others. My knowledge on a particular subject won't directly correspond to what my grade may be in a class.

    How does the previous comments specifically insulting me not count as personal attacks?
    Firstly, prior comments regarding the topic has been presented, and discussion points were made. After which, you chose to make a counter argument out of it, which devolved into people getting upset, which is understandable given that you failed to understand just why having a lower cost iPhone is a bad idea. You kept reversing and reversing until some of the members took offense. They chose to show it in an indirect way, but again you chose to reject their points. It was soon that people who previously chose to keep their cool became more than a little peeved.

    Not everyone's opinions are right, and we must always be prepared to back them up. It's just how someone is expected to be doing in a public forum.

    Look at what you are doing: You are not receptive of people's arguments towards yours, you are taking it badly, AND you are even taking it personal against Sean.

    How's that acceptable?

    Like I said, I'd be willing to bet they have thought about it and discarded it as a losing strategy. And I'd also bet that they continue to think about it. They didn't get to be the most valuable company in the world by not considering lots of options.
