What are the choices in changing the status quo?
I generally agree with that ... Yet, we have disadvantaged people/locals in this world and their situation is growing worse in spite of the governments/politicians efforts.Apple is a very visible, very profitable company with a good corporate conscience. What if Apple decided that it is to Apple's and the larger world community's benefit to address some of these issues.As others have posted, the black community in the US is disproportionally disadvantaged -- jobs,...

Putting aside the aroma of a reputed Jessie Jackson shakedown, I mostly agree with both of you.But, I prefer direct affirmative action -- rather than getting the governments/politicians involved ...For example, couldn't these companies better address the problems of the middle class and poor by creating jobs in depressed areas -- Detroit, for example.NY, AZ, TX and others give tax incentives to entice job creation in their states -- Companies that take advantage of these...
The next iDevices should also have more RAM to allow apps to exploit the 64-bit APU.
