    Seems Russia is in the news a lot lately. Oh boy.

    Anyway, I don't know if I should even believe the news, since the source is Russian watchdog. If their gov might think "how can we hurt their economy in retaliation for their nonsense news about us constantly hacking them, etc.. oh wait, let's just say they did some price fixing, apple is a big thing over there right?"

    Wouldn't surprise me, but ala, if Apple was naughty, glad they got caught for it. I don't know why they would even have to do it, they dictate their prices quite well. Nothing to price fix.

    I am bored and need coffee. Discuss!

    Apple wants to be a political player, an activist, and play with the big boys. So... they can expect the same microscope and extermination tactics used on all vocal activist organizations.

    It's what happens when you spend more time playing in the mud than you do focusing on your actual business.

    Agreed, while I don't knock the social issues, I think Apple would be better off using its energies on making products then promoting its social issue agenda.

    The smart move is to stay off of this mess or get burned.
