2. Yeah - let's boycott them because they didn't break any laws.



Of course bankers with robo-signing, mischaracterizing borrower incomes, charging more interest than allowable, making collection calls outside of legally defined time periods --- yeah...let's let them continue business as usual.

I understand all this moral positioning that somehow they should pay more taxes than is legally required and I love me some Robert Reich daily, but seriously - Bob...when your accountant tells you your tax bill for the year is $100k...do you say "let's toss another 20k in the envelope because it's the moral thing to do"?

Until then, how about we we focus our attention on the SOBs in congress who keep writing these dumbshit laws that ALLOW Apple to do this. They're not alone, they're just the biggest. Close the loopholes.
