And for clearence, a monopoly is a retailer that sells 90 percent of it's own products. So like the Mac store or Trader Joes.

I'm always the car or the battleship. I hate it when games drag out FOREVER though.

That's not what a monopoly is. A monopoly is a single company that controls an entire market. Apple hasn't cornered the market on computers.

I love the car and the hat, ok with the dog but the ship, boot and iron all suck. I'm with you on game length though, too often I've intentionally sabotaged myself to lose and get out of the game early.

More or less this. A company or organisation that has exclusive control over a particular commodity, I think is the dictionary definition.

Personally, I love Axis and Allies. Being Germany is just so much fun.

Agreed a monopoly is when a company is the only outlet for said good, and can jack up the price with no competition. Apple kind of has that because of the social status but really has many many competitors. Plus you can buy apple at any given store. Here is the thing Walmart and similare companies are becoming monopolies because they are running every other business out of business :)

Yea, that's what I thought. A monopoly is a company that controls >50% of the market.

I also find Cluedo particularly enjoyable. I would wreck Ms.Scarlett.

Monopolies are bad for customers.

I prefer diopolies or triopolies.

Wacom and the tablet market. They've got the best products, the best prices, and everything worth anything comes from them.

They cornered the market through superior products and prices as compared to vicious business policies. I don't give a shit that they've got it cornered, so long as they continue to do what they do best.

Fixed it for you. Besides, monopoly is illegal in some states.

Apple hasnt cornered any market really apart from personal music players, theyre still right down in the minority in just about everything from mobile phones to computers. Last time I checked they only had about 5% of the phone market, compared to Nokia which has about 25% of the market, Samsung (who I am a fanboy of) which has about 20% and LG which has about 7%.
