Re: [iPhone] Do you think the iPhone is a good "value"

said by skeechan:

Jeff Bezos should be more concerned about the kind of companies that lose a crapload of money.

Meanwhile iPhone sales appear to be doing just fine and despite all the whining had yet another record quarter, despite it being only 13 weeks instead of the usual 14.

Profits for amazon are reinvested into the company. It's a long term strategy and it's working out nicely for amazon.

You don't reinvest profit. Profit is the retained earnings; it is what is left AFTER spending including reinvestment (along with payouts of dividends). When you post a loss, there is no profit. Expenses and charges exceeded revenues.

Meanwhile massive losses aren't a long term strategy, just ask Pets.com.
