Munger says Apple is in “a hugely powerful position.”

Well, I think Apple is one of the strongest companies in the world. I judge the strength of the compnany based on how much the customers love it. And I’ve got zillions of friends who they’d almost part with their right arm before they’d part with their iPhone. That’s a hugely powerful position to be in. I think Apple is one of the strong companies and will stay a strong company and I think it’s ungodly well-managed.

  1. Your continued use of “haters” reminds me of high school. Besides being a trite meme, your position implies ANY critical opinion of Apple is senseless. No entity, opinion, fact is outside of criticism. None. Please find a better word, or way to make a point.

    1. Illogical anger at Apple, bad, illogical anger at a hater being called a hater, really bad.

      You’re regularly coming to a pro Apple product website to rail against Apple. But please don’t call you a hater? Really?

      1. Calling out hater doesn’t prove illogic of a comment. Btw, you’ve never said “illogical,” nor in any way defined what deserves “hater” designation…except those that don’t lather the brand–as you see fit.

        Regardless, “hater” is an all-encompassing nothing word. It’s important to know this if you’re beyond teen yrs…esp if you don’t think defining is necessary.

        Btw, I’m pro-Apple, use only Apple products, worked at Apple and no longer have to work b/c of Apple. Oddly to you, I’d guess, there are aspects of Apple that I criticize. How dare me.

        Worth repeating:

        “No entity, opinion, fact is outside of criticism. None.”
