Apple the Non-Benevolent

You know what, I really love Apple for ratcheting up the standards in the IT and consumer electronics industry but I really hate their arrogance and their followers arrogance. They are not benevolent in any way and I'd go so far as to say they're outright evil;

- Destroying partners (Adobe premiere, lightroom, flash)
- Lying in adverts
- Bullying the press
- Bullying employees
- Bullying ex-employees
- Squashing third party hardware developers
- Barb wire guarding their closed eco-system
- Taxing every possible interaction with their system
- Leaving virtually no money for resellers
- Bullying subcontractors to suicide
- Building crap that fails just like everybody else but covering it up
- CEO lies outright regularly ("nobody wants video" - "nobody reads anymore")

Apple = Greed/Control/Monopoly

The thing that pisses me off the most is that this navel-gazing hippy Buddhist CEO has done virtually nothing for the world outside of Apple while Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Ted Turner and all the other 'evil capitalists' give their billions away to the poor of this world.

You hit the nail on the head.
Apple's "model" is flawed and they will eventually
crumble unless they radically change it.
Apple fanbois choose ignore all that you said because... "Apple and Jobs are supercool,are they not?"
