    Hi, I was just wondering what you guys thought about apple giving away upgrades of their new OS away free. Do you guys think that this is a smart move by Apple and why do you think they did it?

    Apple isn't a software company- their main source of income is from hardware (iPhones, iPads, Macs...)- they sat down, looked at the numbers and decided they would make all of their updates and other software (Pages, Numbers) free because people will more than likely buy their hardware in exchange for the free software. Microsoft is making a lot of their software free as well now.
