Spotify & Other Whining To The European Union About Apple #music

AppleOmar MoralesComment

Spotify is ones again bitching at the European Union against Apple. Spotify, Deezer and others music and app developers are whining that they have pay Apple between 15% and 30% for sales or subscriptions generated through the Apple App Store.

Their excuse is that while they have to pay Apple for Apple providing them with access to hundreds of millions of its customers Apple does not have to incur this 15%-30% commission on it. This they all claim is unfair to them and they want the EU to force Apple to level the playing field.

And this is plain old bull S#@$

So according to the Spotify clan is unfair for Apple to have the same benefits as them and not pay itself the commission or not eliminate the commission for its competitors, not a level playing field they claim.

Well, why didn’t Spotify spent billions developing its own App Store, Phone, and cloud infrastructure why didn’t Spotify invest even more promoting and acquiring customers? See they want all the benefits of what Apple built but none of the cost.

You know who isn’t bitching like Spotify and actually competing fair and square? Amazon with its Amazon Unlimited service. Why? Because like Apple Amazon built a business from the ground up and know what actually competing is.

So ditch those crybabies at Spotify and Deezer and join Apple Music or Amazon Music Unlimed.

New Report & Video

Apple's commitment to the environment starts from the ground up. We strive to create not only the best products in the world, but the best products for the world. And over the past year, we've made significant progress through projects that focus on renewable energy and forest preservation.

Along with it’s annual responsibility report Apple today released a new video that showcases all the effort Apple is putting towards helping or reducing the impact on the environment.

Apple’s 2015 Environmental Responsibility Report, covering fiscal year 2014, highlights the progress we’ve made. We have set three priorities where we believe Apple can make the most impact:

• Reduce our impact on climate change by using renewable energy sources and driving energy efficiency in our products.

• Conserve precious resources so we all can thrive.

• Pioneer the use of greener materials in our products and processes.

This report details how we are approaching each of these priorities and highlights some of our key accomplishments to date.

Personal Opinion

For many all this thing Apple do are just marketing stunts for other are a waste of resources. But for me this are the things that make me feel good about my Apple devices. I rather spent my money on products from a company that not only put so much effort on its products but also on the way they are made and how they are made.

I am really happy at Apples environmental efforts and will like to see more of this not only from Apple (and Google) but from all business and government agencies.
