Sounds like Apple needs a PCI audit. On average every account they’ve lost will cost slightly more than $200 to repair. Thats restitution, penalties to the card issuers, possible legal trouble from the card owners, and cost of replacing the cards.
Could be higher of course. If they’ve lost enough account they’ll be forced into some very expensive corrective actions.
Yep. But from post 13, it sounds like Apple will say “screw you” and ignore it, let the credit card company come after them. Just like a cold, calculating “bottom line oriented corporation”, not a caring entity.
Funny, I claimed that a week ago in another thread and was pilloried for it. Now we see that, in fact, Apple cares more about the bottom line than a given user’s satisfaction or experience. They’ll only care about an issue if it becomes large enough to affect enough users in a significant enough manner to threaten their profitability.
Apple: Think Different (about us; while we’re the same dollar-driven bastards as the rest of the industry we rail against, we still want you to ignore that and consider us blameless in all things)
