It's important that companies, including Apple, back gay rights reform. Gay rights are human rights. Businesses employs humans so it's in their interest to support human rights.
I yearn for the old days when 'practising your religion' meant taking the moral high road on your own personal affairs. Now 'practising your religion' just means opening a business, loudly pointing out the perceived sins of other people, kicking up a fuss and generally seeing how much you can get away with. Then playing the 'persecution' card when you get called out on it.   Selling a wedding cake to a same-sex couple does not make you a participant in their marriage any...
 Did you ever think that white privilege might a part of the reason you were hired for those two jobs? White privilege is not like Donald Trump standing on a corner and handing out free money to white people or something.
 You're welcome to move to Siberia. I hear it's lovely this time of year.
Thank you Apple, this makes my life a lot easier!
What? Hello Kitty and maneki neko (Lucky Cat) are both Japanese.
I hope they can pick up the pace with the international rollout. Given that most of the terminals here are NFC capable I was expecting 4 months tops. Maybe they always intended to get the rewards program together first and the US rollout was more of a proof of concept.

With folders you can only keep things in a single place but with labels you can mark an incoming bill both "Paid" and "Tax...
 The specific context in Australian is that corporate tax avoidance has been red flagged for years, both by a formal tax review and by an upswell of public interest as people become aware of what is happening.  The expected revenue from this measure in the recent budget is marked as a blank figure with an asterisk. They basically have no idea about the extent of the problem and probably no real intention of actually repatriating any money. This is a toothless tiger, a...
It's not just Apple. There are 30 companies being targeted in this measure. The double-irish-with-a-dutch-sandwich might be legal but it is not ethical. Company profit is a BENEFIT of being able to conduct business in countries with a stable economy and infrastructure. Companies which profit ought to reinforce the stability of those same economies through appropriate taxation. It goes both ways: there is no point in governments supporting business activity that doesn't...
