    Yup.. 44 billion bucks! [/FONT][/COLOR] Now this activity isnt "illegal" i certainly believe that it should be.
    $44 Million!!!!!!!! That's bucketloads. I know Apple has more cash on hand than the current US Government. The future for this company post-Steve Jobs, is looking really crappy. Stock is in the toilet, no "insanely great" product announcements for a couple of years, same old idevices only a little better and faster, not cheaper of course! Is Apple's lovefest with the counterculture types over?

    Steve Jobs was an amazing marketer, and an amazing ideas man, the company is not.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Wondering if you take all the deductions that the tax code allows. Or do you just pay taxes on your gross income?

    Without people like Jobs the market as you know it would not exist. See how the wheel goes round?

    Steve jobs marketing is not new or revolutionary. It is the same marketing scheme used by abercrombie or things like luxury car companies. Make a brand name, overcharge for your products, and idiots will pay more for less in an effort to be seen as elite. Everything apple has innovated has been done better and cheaper by others.

    You mean the chinese manufacturing market. Sorry, but this is a load of crap. they did not put crapples on the desks of every american workers or in most homes in the US back in the 90's and 2000's. That is due to Apple's crappy marketing and Steves elitist brand name mentality for his company. Apple is actually losing market share right now because they refuse to bring their product to lower price markets which is why things like droid will end up owning them in the future just like in the PC market. So before you go telling us how the US needs Apple they do not. Apple needs the US market because without it they would not have a place to sell big phone and pad numbers because other countries do not have the disposable income or brand name BS market the US has.

    It doesn't "pay" for anything, they just charge the credit card. But what we get for this credit is pointless bull**** that should be abolished.

    Do you think the government should protect your rights for free?
