Occupy Cupertino, Dude

This was a nasty, vindictive man who laid off workers en masse, bragged about stealing ideas from competitors, belittled his employees with screaming tirades laced with oaths and imprecations, overburdened them with heinous work schedules, cheated his best friends and oldest colleagues when it came time to distribute shares, outsourced everything he could to Chinese factories that employ child labor under dangerous conditions, practiced a cruel Darwinian meritocracy that disdained diversity, lied constantly out of pure habit, sicced the government on his chief business rival, possessed a “Nietzschean attitude that ordinary rules didn’t apply to him”, and even denied paternity of his firstborn child. Then he took credit for the work he practically whipped out of people while posing as a benevolent sage.

And the worst thing is that he was friends with Rupert Murdock! ;)

Yeah, and think of that mountain of money doing nothing. The execs probably ski down it during their lunch breaks.

I think if you to a logic approach and asked the OWS set questions to define what they are protesting, you will come up with the definition of Apple.

I think you will also find that a majority will say that Apple is not a vicious evil company exploiting the masses.

MN, that's exactly my thoughts, too.
