Considering Amazon's recent $274 million quarterly loss, don't you think it's a little bit too early to say that their model is the best? Apple earned $8 billion in the same amount of time.

I'm pretty sure they made a loss because of acquisitions they had made and not because of their competitive pricing.


But you're still looking at an 8 billion dollar difference. Hard to argue against Apple's strategy


Their acquisition was a big part of their loss, but they run their business with very thin margins and still would have lost money without the acquisition.
