Apple's App Store is not the wildly profitable operation it might seem, but rather does just a little better than breaking even, according to a recent report. In fact, the App Store has accounted for just $189 million -- or about 1 percent -- of Apple's total gross profit since it launched almost two years ago, according to Piper Jaffray analysts Gene Munster, Michael Olson and Andrew Murphy, who released a report on the topic early Wednesday. Total gross profit during that time was $33.7 billion, the analysts noted.

the App store is like Gillette but at inverse the objective is to sell i phones, i touch, etc. the more extensive of inventories you have the more smart machines you are going to sell, smart move by Steve.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
