That's what I thought when I read this, too. I doubt very much that Apple will do this, even if it is true that they are investigating it.
Ah yes, the threat of unwelcome association. "If you stand stand X, you have to be in repugnant group Y." I haven't heard someone make that argument since 3rd grade. The only truth you've illuminated is your own lack of empathy. I have no fondness for the confederate flag or for white supremacists. But doing something wrong in the name of a high ideal is still doing something wrong. Period.
It's strange you'd say that, since that's exactly what they did. Then they encountered a storm of criticism and relented a bit.

That really does crosses the line.
Netflix, no. More like bit torrent. Subsidizing the internet so they can steal movies. After all, everything is supposed to be free, right?
Say what? This is happening because Apple puts underpowered mobility graphics cards in its iMacs. The Oculus won't run on Windows laptops with these cards either. Apple has 100% control over what graphics cards they use.
