1. I think that Apple is trying not only to build its amount of customers with the price cut, but with all the rules they are instating, they are also trying to control them.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
