    The other shoe sorta dropped. Apple shipped a crap load of jobs (in the spirit of American Patriotism) because of cheap wages..and almost zero regulations concerning Worker safety thanks to the lack of Unions. Well..some of the chickens have come to roost. Sorta.

    Welcome to the future, folks...when Unions get broken.:eusa_eh:

    I don't own any Apple products, unlike most of the liberals I know.

    Dunno, but my sisters very liberal and has an Iphone. I'm rather conservative and have a BB.

    Why? I can use it with one hand. I can text with one hand and do so without looking at the screen other than just before sending (to be sure). It's why I still have my BB 9000. The keys are large and shaped with a raised dot on the "D" for the thumb to reposition.

    A great phone.

    I do not own any apple products either.

    Oops wait...I did buy a bag of Winesap ones last week, quite tasty.
    And a few jars of applesauce.

    This and a bag of chips..means you have a bag of chips.

    The issue here isn't who buys what..but the behavior of American companies. If you support this sort of crapola..say so.

    But in the big scheme of things the whole "Well I don't buy it..so I don't care" meme amounts to nothing.
