You might have a point if 90% of ads weren't dancing toilet paper rolls or singing fudge bars.
Obviously, not so obviously.
Sometimes they pay a lot less than what is "legally" possible. Hopefully that's not the case with Apple in Ireland.
They are investigating. IF these companies followed the law, they won't be fined, even if they took advantage of loopholes. However, the government absolutely should investigate whether laws were broken, and whether certain loopoholes should be closed. Just like in the U.S., when huge corporations get out of paying taxes, it needs to be investigated, and the loopholes closed.
Not every product Apple (or any company) sells has to make a gazillion dollars. Yeah, tell Apple what it needs to focus on - I'm sure they're grateful for your all-knowing amateur pontifications of what's best for them.
 The appeal of the DOJ case was heard on December 15 - they said at the time that a ruling could take "up to six months." Apple's case to get Bromwich removed was heard in March - I don't know how long that ruling is expected to take.
I guess you didn't buy a 2010 MacBook Pro with the defective graphics that had kernel panics all the time. It also had bulging batteries. Both issues had repair programs for them, but mine didn't really get the constant kernel panics until after the 3-year window for the repair program.
Maybe they should make Yosemite into a first class operating system before they come out with a new one.   I like Yosemite, but there are still a lot of annoyances, and they're still fixing major bugs. I hope Apple concentrates on that, instead of introducing 200 new features and changing dozens of interface elements, and then spending the next year fixing what doesn't work, before introducing the next OS in 2016 and starting the cycle all over again.
I haven't tried the preview, but it appears you can't set up toolbars with exactly the tools you want anymore - you have to use the ribbon to get any tools across the top. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a non-starter for me. The ribbon is a terrible interface. So I'll stick to Office 2011 until it doesn't run anymore (I'd really like to be able to use Office 2004 on a Yosemite computer). Pages and Numbers are definitely not good enough for my needs, especially Numbers....
So does Tonya Harding.
