New NEWS yesterday, for future editing[edit]

Can you even imagine seven-hundred-BILLION-dollars ???????

Headline-1: Apple becomes first $700 billion company

QUOTE: "... pushing the iPhone maker's market capitalization above $700 billion for the first time. As of Tuesday's close, the Cupertino-based company was valued at $710.8 billion, making Apple the first U.S. company to surpass the $800 billion mark. Apple first traded above $700 billion in intraday trade on Nov. 25, 2014, but this is the first time the stock has closed above it. Since Apple's IPO in December 1980, the company's market value has risen more than 50,600%, with half of that occurring since January 2012, according to Dow Jones Factoids. ..." -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 13:05, 11 February 2015 (UTC) -- PS: FYI for future editing.

Headline-2: Apple Becomes First U.S. Company to Close Above $700B In Value

QUOTE: "Market value is a commonly used term among investors to measure how much a company is worth. It is determined by multiplying the company's shares outstanding by its stock price. Apple's market value--or market capitalization, as it is also known as--is based on the company's 5.82 billion shares outstanding." -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 13:08, 11 February 2015 (UTC) -- PS: FYI for additional future editing.


Apple personal computer security[edit]

Moving forward in the current world environment, security will be big. What will Apple do?

Headline-1: Google gives Apple and Microsoft an ultimatum: 'Patch your software vulnerabilities, or we'll make them public'

QUOTE: "Google claims its move is designed to protect consumers from criminals; But software providers are not happy with the threat to expose problems; Opponents say strategy could damage online security and help crooks; Tomorrow, President Obama will visit Google to call on companies to work together and share information to thwart cyber crooks."

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Criticism of Apple Inc. be merged with Apple Inc. to restore a NPOV and eliminate the POV fork created. Not all "Criticism" articles are POV forks but Criticism of Apple is. You can make a living as a Film Critic, you can't make a living as a Apple Critic, Criticism of apple is a article to seperate a POV. I propose we merge the two articles ( some content may need to go to sub pages of apple for example iPhone,iPad,etc ) but in the name of NPOV we can do it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bryce Carmony (talkcontribs) 19:50, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

From the POV that the main Apple page is already quite long I would say no merger. If this criticism page is not NPOV then that needs to be corrected. 220 of Borg 03:05, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
how can the main apple page be POV when any "criticism" is banned? Apple is a big company , we already have lots of articles on it there isn't any problem making more. We might have to make an article "Apple Inc. Labor Relations" or "Apple Inc. Litigation" to create new topics to hold all the information we have. but we can't consider 2 articles for 1 topic a solution. Bryce Carmony (talk) 03:17, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Strongly oppose - Merging would create a serious neutrality issue; best kept separate. -- Somedifferentstuff (talk) 08:33, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
How does writing an article with postiive and negative fairly portraying both sides create a neutrality issue? creating an article where we set out and say "only 'good' stuff goes in this article, we have a seperate article for the 'bad'stuff, don't worry we'll think of a way to classify it" that's how we get into NPOV issues.Bryce Carmony (talk) 08:59, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Strongly oppose per Somedifferentstuff. If you think the article is not neutral then you can correct it by editing, checking the references etc - you'd have to do this anyway when merging. The solution to problems in an article (if they exist) is not to delete it. And anyway, in what way is the article not neutral? Can you provide examples from within the article - things that could not easily be fixed by editing? Or are you saying that it is fundamentally, irretrievably not neutral simply because it exists (is that what you mean by "Criticism of apple is a article to seperate a POV."?), and for that reason it cannot be allowed to continue in wikipedia? That's not an opinion that I can agree with. andy (talk) 13:09, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
if both articles are NPOV then a merger will not be a problem. We can split up the content other ways besides " Criticism" and "non criticism" Apple Controversies, would be a way better article than "Criticism of Apple". Bryce Carmony (talk) 14:14, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
