Oh noes! How will they stop cannabis use without round the clock surveillance of all citizens?   DEA, your concern has been noted. I will be sure to act on it at every possible voting opportunity.
“Google plans ‘to market a tablet of the highest quality’ in the next six months” Eric Schmidt, Chairman, Google, 19 Dec 2011   That's OK Eric, the world need followers as well as leaders.
  Groveling takes different forms in different environments. In the US, it means "lobbying", if you know what I mean. In China, it means responding to state requests for "humility", if you know what I mean.
This "please come back" program fits nicely with the shift from last year's "can they maintain momentum" to this year's "can they regain momentum". I'm pulling for you Apple, please don't let another year pass with only incremental upgrades and bungled roll outs like maps.

CEOs get obscene bonuses regardless of performance, so they will happily continue tossing money into a corrupt system without considering the costs of trying to compete against a government known for lawless behavior.

I'm sure Amazon would love for people to pay for their advertising and data mining conduit disguised as a phone. Next up, Facebook makes a smart phone. You can trust Facebook with your information, because Facebook is all about privacy.
Kook fests like Greenpeace do more damage than good. With this latest tantrum, they prove they are in the "everybody look at my righteous indignation" business and don't give a damn about results. Nothing says poser like a group that puts it's own self aggrandizement before the cause they claim to champion.   They should start their own reality-challenged TV show so they can get their celebrity seeking ya-yas without impeding the cause of environmentally responsible...
