After all, Apple has $150 billion in cash on hand. It is the most profitable technology company in the world. It can afford to lower prices.

Sure! Why, if Apple were a charitable organization run by volunteers, imagine how cheap the iPhone would be then!

Hey, Facebook made a pretty nice profit last quarter. What if maybe they showed fewer ads? Better yet, what’s Business Insider’s profit? Maybe you guys could write a little less link-baiting claptrap. That’d be good, as long as we’re all just giving away profits for no reason.
