Besides screwing their customers and competitors, Apple screwed their own employees.
Who's responsibility it is to make sure you put unleaded in your car instead of diesel?   If a customer gets Amazon and Apple confused, that's their fault. If a customer purchases an app from the wrong store, how much money are they out, 99¢? BFD! And are they going to keep buying fron the wrong store? Apple must feel their customers are stupid.
  I wouldn't want that happen to any child. It's not often that someone actually meets a person that had a rough childhood. I may have met others, but you're the first to admit it. It sounds like you understand what your childhood was like and are dealing with it in a mature way.
  Regular crayons weren't?   What will it be in an abnormal household?
  Absolutely. That "foreign" subsidiary was created by, wholly controlled by, receives support by, and benefits, an American company. The profits from the foreign subsidiary are included in who's quarterly reports which are filed where?     Legal or illegal is irrelevant. The tax law is screwed up and it needs to be fixed. If other companies are using the loophole, then they are just as slimy as Apple.     Who needs numbers? They currently pay near $0, it obviously needs...
  Profits yes. I never said sales tax. You're putting words in my mouth.     Being made in the US would be good for the country. Apple has already started to do that. They obviously think the cost difference is negligible.
    All of those products sold in other countries were designed and engineered where?   A European vacation for consumers is not the same thing. We go there to spend money. Businesses go there to make money.
  Product prices are already as high as they think customers are willing to pay. Increasing taxes will not change it.
jragosta and tzeshan need to do their homework.     Because Apple is a company based out of the US, ALL of their overseas profits are subject to tax.     Apple paid 2% in taxes on $36.8B of foreign revenue for fiscal 2012 http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/154084/apple-paid-2-in-taxes-on-36-8b-of-foreign-revenue-for-fiscal-2012       Since Apple benefits immensely from our country's infrastructure (court system, roadways, immigration, utilities,...)...
  The rates are fine, whatever it is 35%. Remove the loopholes which makes their effective rate 10.75%   The $55b is what Apple has left over after paying expenses which include salaries. Employees will not be paying taxes from it.
