What the hell is Apple up to now???

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by hornet, Jul 10, 2008.

  1. The last paragraph of a news.com.au article about Vodafone selling the iPhone outright says, quoting someone from the official Apple Store, "He said the Apple Store would not sell the iPhone outright, only as part of an offer with a carrier." :? :? :?

    So Fred's Auto's at Granville can sell you a new Ferrari, but the official Ferrari concessionaire can't, sort of???

    Apple re-sellers must be the most long-suffering people on the face of the earth; when the Pope gets here he should make them all saints; God knows they've suffered enough to deserve it.
  2. Yeah, Apple stores are locked to certain terms and conditions... like our online store, we can sell Macs cheaper than an Apple store can, strange but true... :?
  3. Doesn't seem to be hurting Apple right now, does it?
  4. Can't be too bad a deal. They're falling over themselves to secure the franchises...

    Wow. Didn't know that they employed altar boys...
