Time for a consumer BOYCOTT!
A boycott is the best form of non-violent, noncompliance... and it's the clearest way to send a message to the ones exercising a perverse abuse of the power; that they have acquired from the support of the very consumers they have built their empire upon, that, and Chinese slave labour exploitation...
This is a disgusting betrayal human rights, and even more so, of the sentiments of those very consumers who are typically young, technically savvy, environmentally considerate, and supportive.. even demanding, of social equity and social justice. I've always seen the worm in Apple, and have never signed on to their cash grabbing music pimping, a dollar a song... for a 2 cent download! Their price fixing and vicious antitrust conduct against other competitors... like Samsung, for making a phone, that looks like a phone, as if God gave Apple the ultimate rights to OWN the non-existent patent on a glossy faced RECTANGLE!
It was more than just divine justice that the man who made the misery of thousands of Chinese factory workers a daily reality, died before he could enjoy his perverse and excessively expensive yacht! It's time to send his surviving cronies the same message, put them and their bottom line in the red, so deep they'll feel like Nortel during the height of their corporate beatings!
Greed and those who blindly pursue it at the expense of the environment, social norms, and humanity at large, will have a dark destiny of their own making... not unlike the irony of their recent commercial, claiming more music is played on their phone than any other... that's because it's so damn expensive to buy, and manage an account, that listing to music is about the ONLY THING an average consumer of Apple products can afford to use the phone for now days... everything else about the phone... just too damn expensive and dripping with greed juice.
Am I biased, no... Apple never ripped me off... because I never gave them a chance... I saw the worm that this company really is, long ago, before the proof in the pudding came to light... instinct I guess. Time for everyone to follow their instincts... before Apple imposes the '3 Laws' on it's consumers and employees alike! I hope they get slammed in court!
