You seem to think that Hilliary is like us nothings. Let me explain so that even an AC like you can understand. People like Hilliary, and for those partisan liberals out there I will include Dick Cheney, are not the same as us. They are our betters. Elite and enlightened people who are special and not subject to such mundane things as laws. Try to understand that you have no right to question or object to these superior individuals.

I know how they work. He stated that he didn't have a "high enough clearance" to read the damn things. I don't know what it was or what classification it was as he couldn't even really talk about what little they let him know about it. Evidently Mrs. Clinton didn't know how they work. I expect her briefing got pencil whipped.

I understand that. That hardly means they don't want the Billions of Dollars they get from Macs. Are you seriously trying to tell me that Apple doesn't give a shit about a measly 8 or 10 billion dollars? That they can't be bothered to pick that money up off the table? It's too much trouble? Just let HP and Dell have that chump change? Come on dude. Even Apple doesn't sneeze at billions of dollars in profit. I bet you don't run a business.

House Chairman on the intelligence committee has a very high clearance and there were many of the documents that even he wasn't cleared for. The fact that she had highly classified material on the private server is indisputable. The only dispute is whether it was a crime or not. Basically the FBI accepted her explanation that she's an idiot and I have to agree, she is. Arrogance is it's own kind of stupidity.

Nobody cuts 10 percent of their profit out. You're nuts if you believe that. Especially when they can use it to tie iPhone users more fully into the Apple Walled Garden. When your phone works together with your computer it makes life easy. No, it's not their main profit but that's a lot of money. Every single PC manufacturer wished they made what Apple makes on computers. A good friend of mine has an iMac and he loves how it works with his iPhone6. Every upgrade to iOS just makes it smoother as well. New Computer hardware is supposed to be announced later this month so I'd say Apple is aware of the importance of maintaining all areas of their empire.

You know, just a little research tells me that Apple had over 25 billion dollars in revenue just from Macs in 2015. That's a nice chunk of change considering over 30 percent of that is profit. HP has to sell more than 7 windows machines to equal what one Mac brings to Apple. Why in hell do you think Apple would turn away from that? Particularly since they put so much work into making them work together so seamlessly.
