thats because apples motto is "how can we be evil today".

every day its a new piece of BS about apples dirty back room dealings. Seriously. How can you people continue to defend this company blindly? The arrogance and the complete disrespect for law and human rights is shining right in your face but all you can see is a pretty apple logo.

Its sickening.

They really need to take a look at Apple and start thinking about splitting the company up.
An iTunes company. An iOS company. And a Mac company.
