Still not offering Apple TV+ subscriber numbers... even a ballpark figure would be nice.

Tim Cook since 2011: Apple is a hardware + software + services company.
Media/Analysts/Critics: Apple is a hardware company. They don’t get services.

Tim Cook in 2021: Apple is a hardware + software + services company.
Media/Analysts/Critics: Apple is a services company. They don‘t care about hardware anymore.

It‘s astonishing how many people still don’t understand that Apple is a design company focused on user experience, which is the intersection of hardware, software, and services. This is why their products are more than the sum of their parts, and why they’re dominating all 3 areas (as measured by revenue, profit, marketshare, customer satisfaction, etc.)

I’m sorry I don’t want to sound rude, but this sounds like corporate bs. Apple sells hardware and software. That’s it.
