nunzy said:Apple will get lots of tax breaks. That is the nature of giant corporate entities. We all pay more taxes so that apple or other giant corporations build near us and so maximize their profits.if we don't give tax money to these kinds of giant corporations, they will leave the United States. We can already see that because Apple keeps most of its cash in other countries. the United States needs to give more to Apple to keep it here.
Of course he does. He needs to take credit for anything to stoke his ego, even though all of this money was already earmarked to be spent on regular employees, etc in the first place.
Where are the ACTUAL jobs? From what I've read Apple will now spend HALF of what it did last year on taxes, which is already a joke.
I love Apple products but give me a break.
allmypeople said:I get what he's saying but hate that he feels the need to virtue signal to socialists in society by saying Apple isn't in it for the money. Apple only could have flourished in a pro-business country without the government dictating all its choices. They should be proud of their products and profits because they can bring us NEW wonderful products, employing 100's of thousands of people with good wages and support 100's of thousands of people & businesses who are effected by their ecosystem.
Firstly many of the companies Apple employs overseas are known for having terrible work conditions with low pay.
2nd, without all the safety nets, military support, tax breaks, etc Apple probably would not be where they are.
They, along with all multi-billion dollar American businesses have a huge advantage from our Middle class funded support and bought and paid for government.
I do agree with you they are definitely in it for the money, which is fine, but not at the expense of people's lives or destruction of the planet.
SpamSandwich said:Pres. Trump previously assured Cook that Apple would not be part of any tariffs. And the Chinese government would be fools to retaliate using Apple as an example. Apple employs tens of thousands of Chinese workers there.

I just tested it trying to send an email to myself and it failed to recognise or understand what I was saying in order to complete the request, Google's voice recognition system is miles ahead. Apple need to get of their lazy arse and get on with it as this is becoming a major component of tech.
