This is not about the particular features of the phone. This is about the phone signing income and class difference. Very few working people can afford to buy this phone, and it is a shame Apple has chosen to take this road.
Both of these people who have phones are single men who like technology, so it makes sense that they would have it. Nothing wrong with that, but for me, just having facial recognition and the other features are not enough to justify the price.
What price would be fair? I don’t know. I don’t set prices. What I do know is that when you price something out of the mainstream, it doesn’t help society but instead divides it.
Yes, it is capitalism. Yes, they can charge any price they want. Yes, if I don’t like I won’t buy it. Yes, many people feel its overpriced.
What is the point of this article? I have said before that Apple is less impressive the more monopolistic it acts. Raising prices is a sign of a monopoly. Having class action lawsuits when you don’t take responsibility is a sign of a monopoly. Having only one source to fix things or it will break warranty is a sign of a monopoly.
Don’t get me wrong. I think Apple is still a better computer than Windows. However right now it is the lesser of two evils. It doesn’t mean that I am going to spend money like I used to on Apple products. They wait far too long to update, and charge too much for what you get.
So for me, the iPhone is a bad sign of where Apple seems to be going. If it continues in this direction, I will reevaluate my choices. Apples time may be coming to an end.
