And I got a lot of flak for calling Apple "generous" in the iTunes relief thread....

This is disgusting. 2.5 million for a company that has 100 plus BILLION in CASH! All you people saying its nice of apple have no logic for money and how much apple is really worth. You are talking about one of the biggest disasters in US History and apple throws a little 2.5 million dollar check on the table and says "ok we did our part"

Like someone mention earlier this is pennies. It's almost sad in the sense that most of the people who were effected own apple products and the best apple can do is 2.5 million? Yet they spent 3 BILLION to bail out Sharp a non US company?

Sorry guys you won't find a bigger fan of their products as me but their business motto and how they are starting to operate is really getting annoying.

Donations aren't a competition. Understand that. Yes, apple don't donate as much as others but saying "too little too late" is just plain wrong

So what's your idea to stop natural disasters from devastating lives? Don't forget to protect people from earthquakes and tsunamis too.

I am far from an Apple apologist, but it seems no matter what Apple does in the way of charitable contributions, for some folks it's never enough.

Nightarchaon, have you given a larger percentage of your total worth to the Red Cross? If so, my compliments. If not, then shame on you...put your money where your mouth is.

Sensation, in one man's opinion, a silly and meangingless post.

Possibly, but in that case it's odd that Samsung's announcement came out 4 days before Apple's.

Why would the person be embarrassed? Perhaps you should look at the date when the message was posted.

It is so good to see Apple helping hurricane Sandy's victims. Although I have seen higher donations from private parties, it was a nice gesture.

BUT the fact that they announce it so publicly, it is all for publicity, sad but true.

Have to agree with this sentiment, although you are sure to be lambasted by "Apple is God" crowd. $2.5 million from a company as wealthy as Apple is all about PR, and nothing about substantive assistance.

They should give for free any leftovers of old iPod touches to people that lost their houses and properties so they can play angry birds and forget their problems...

Not sure if serious, but there is a difference between liquid assets/cash and stock price.
