on apple’s “liberal” cred

andrew leonard isn’t impressed

I’m not saying Apple is wrong to do any of these things. Obviously, it makes very good business sense for Apple to keep labor costs as low as possible while maintaining a stranglehold over exactly how its hundreds of millions of customers interact with both the innards of its gadgets and the wonders of the Internet. Taking a cut out of every financial transaction an iPhone or iPad user engages in is also a brilliant strategy — if your goal is to maximize revenues. But none of these things fits under the category of “inclusive” or “tolerant.”
