    You don't get tax deductions for political contributions, but I ask the same question:

    So?

    Hmm, something about that tells me that he might not be a Republican.

    Yeah, it's well known that he supports the Democrats. Al Gore is also on the board of directors at Apple.

    Duh. He's always been a hippie. Vegan and all. If it makes you feel better, both Rush Limbaugh and President Bush are users.

    You'll not be pleased then to know that Steve and Bill (Clinton that is) are actually quite chummy and Steve loaned his house out to Chelsea whilst she was studying at Stanford.

    Wow, although I may be conservative, sometimes I do wish we had Clinton back in office. Back then, the usa was not headed to 1984 or v for vendetta

    From Wikipedia

    "Jobs is not a vegetarian or vegan as is often claimed. Although he does not eat mammalian meat, he reportedly eats fish from time to time. This is known as pescetarianism."

    Another so what? I mean, I am conservative too, but I don't buy apple products because of who Steve is, though Apple products are FAR better in my opinion when Steve is in charge, I buy them because I like them better and for my uses they work better. Though, don't misunderstand me, from what I know, I like Steve. But I mean, who really cares who he donates too? Its his money. I love this country, we can all support whoever we want to...:D

    Bill Gates

    ...has donated much more money to both parties, though he does seem to favor the republicans.

    I always thought the average IQ among Mac users was pretty high, but after hearing that, I think I just heard the average slam to the floor.

    Bill Gates is also a big time democrat. hes donated more money to people(starving kids) than Jobs has even made in his life. Almost every computer person you meet is a democrat. Almost every person in hollywood is a democrat. Almost every teacher in high schools and colleges are democrats(80%). I have zero problems with anyone except the people who think Bush blew up the towers and the levies( in New Orleans) and think we faked the moon landing.

    Yup, whoever donates the most money is a democrat..I guess those poor people are hard-core Republicans. Do you honestly think this or what? Donating money to starving kids doesn't mean you one party or another. I know of few partys that don't hate to help starving kids

    I am honestly not surprised at all.

    this is terribly cynical, but I wonder how much of Bill's donations are PR-related. He sure did give away a lot of money during the MS anti-trust thing...
