Comments on: Great artists steal, tablet edition Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: johncabell Sat, 03 Dec 2011 04:04:06 +0000 One thing neither B&N or Amazon have copied: Making any money off the device itself. They may even be losing money. It’s an old strategy to give away razors to sell blades, but Apple makes lots of money off the hardware, and lots off their cut of apps, which still attract outsized developer interest over Android (at least when it comes to tablets). So I think Apple’s agita index will remain quite low for the foreseeable future.
