Only just, and the incumbent will always carry a current bias for those kinds of questions, whether good or bad.   Obama's average approval rating still seem to be tracking above Bush's at exit.
That's the first time you've asked for any, you originally just insulted him.  Don't start acting coyly innocent and rational now.
True enough, thanks for the correction.  I think it probably has a fair impact though.  I seem to remember reading that Apple normally negotiated a 90 day window for paying their subcontractors (no citation, sorry), so taking that down to 15 days is a substantial reduction, which commits their cash when it could be sitting in a high interest-bearing account, or doing something else. "Fair impact" obviously comes in the context of Apple's many billions of reserves, so I'm...
Good for you.  But that doesn't mean that other people doing a similar thing aren't doing it for very different reasons.

There is the possibility that Apple did not refund the full amount, so gave the outstanding balance to the Commission which distributed it in further refunds. There is the possibility that some of that...
Really?  I'd say it gives an impression that Apple are engaged and willing to sacrifice their own margins to support the broader market.  That's responsibility, not weakness.
