HBO doesn't show "porn" with actual graphic sex acts on screen because there might still be a prosecutor in some backwoods county somewhere that would prosecute the local cable company for obscenity.
Tim Cook is liberal, Carly Fiorina is conservative; therefore fairness requires that Fiorina must be afforded the same respect Tim Cook is. It does not matter how stupid and regressive Republican policies and politicians often are; we have a two-party system, red states and blue states, and whatever Republicans put forward as their best must be graded on a curve to be equally regarded as the best that Democrats have to offer.

This whole case has always been upside-down. Let's prosecute Apple for violating antitrust laws in a way that increased competition!
A car would be a gigantic leap into a strange new industry, but the iPod and iPhone were steps of that kind. The product category of personal computers that Apple was founded on is now a minority of its revenue. Apple is much bigger now and can take bigger steps. Becoming a car company would be very hard, but Apple has more cash than it took for the U.S. to put men on the moon. Is there a question whether Apple could be more successful than, say, John DeLorean? DeLorean's...
