According that Apple only had net revenue of $42.1 billion. So that's like our 30k household finding $320 in the couch. A rather nice day I'm sure.
Not really. $320 is a lot of food money for the family living on $30,000.
It may be the same percentage, but after a certain amount, it doesn't affect your lifestyle(or business) in any real sense.
You think that if Bill Gates lost 1/2 billion overnight, his life would change at all?
I guarantee that the family will feel the loss of $320 far more than Gates or Apple losing $500,000,000.
The fine is a joke. The US needs to start adding in punitive damages to corporate bad behaviour. Off the cuff numbers: If the price fixing gave Apple $1 billion in profit, the fine should be $4 billion.
Even with the fines, it is more profitable to behave badly than it is to be honest. Apple would do it all over again, except try a little harder to get away with it.
