Apple's Next Big Secret Project Could Involve A Fleet Of Satellites

Quote:
Apple has about a dozen engineers working on a project involving satellites and wireless technology, according to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

The effort could one day make it possible for the tech giant to provide iPhone users with the internet and other wireless services without relying as heavily on carriers, although the report does not specify precisely how Apple intends to use such technology.

So paying Apple for data instead of the cell carrier? Sure Rogers, Bell and the rest will love that.

Pretty sure they would not like it, BUT, what if Apple sold unlimited data at less than half the monthly cost of the major internet provider firms to corner the market? I think Apple is suffering from greed and has been for years now and could see them doing this to ensure cash flow. Or even more radical, what if it was free if you purchase Apple products?

I think they are diversifying their assets now. Not putting all their money into hardware and software.

They are financially strong and need new sources of revenue.

I think we are older and the magic of the 80s-90s doesn't apply to us. I wonder what the 20 something year olds think of Apple as this is who they are targeting.
