Somehow Apple’s name got lumped into an article about technology companies with too much power; so much power, the government should consider breaking them up. Wil Gomez:
Breaking up large and influential companies is a time honored tradition from America history. Some companies get too big and exercise a monopolistic restraint on the market. Phone companies have been busted up in decades past, only to rise from the ashes and become predatory again.
Some think the iPhone should be a separate company. How does that benefit anyone except Apple’s competitors?
I’m in favor of Google being broken up (ad business vs. search engine). Amazon, too (data collection vs. online sales vs. cloud services). Even Facebook (ad sales vs. fake news).
The whole article lumps Apple with such offenders as Amazon, Facebook, and Google (even Microsoft got a hefty mention), but Apple is mentioned only three times, including once in the sub-heading below the title.
Nonsense on a slow news day.
