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.
StrangeDays said:Great. Can you next go after Amazon, Netflix, FedEx, Nvidia, Starbucks, etc, all who pay $0 in annual income tax?
Considering that "corporations are people too" (and as such are entitled to freedom of speech via unlimited spending), I find it odd that corporations can spend their money re-investing in business assets (buildings, servers, etc) tax-free, but actual humans have to pay income tax first, then can spend our money re-investing in assets like our homes. Why do we have to pay taxes first, but corporations do not?

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.
