Following Apple's record earnings call, the UK newspaper The Daily Mail published an article today posing the question: Is Apple an Evil Tax Avoider or a Force for Good? Attempting to appear unbiased and fair (readers will know how rarely these words can be used in relation to the newspaper) they decided to give a for and against summary from two opposing views about the company. To me, it just reads like they hadn't got a clue what they were talking about. Even the Apple evangelist sounded laughably ignorant! I've attached photos of each for and against summary. The "Why I love Apple" list: Points 6, 9, and 10 are absolutely ridiculous - I'm actually embarrassed to be an Apple fan. Number 7 can be said about almost any smartphone these days so why did she include it? The "Why I Hate Apple" list: Points 1 is hardly representative of the majority of Apple fans. The criticism of points 2 and 3 can be levelled against many other tech companies. Point 4 is not factoring in the costs of excellent customer support and coding the software which is now free! It is also entirely up to Apple how much it charges. Point 6 is absurdly skewing the facts yet again. Batteries usually outlast the life of the phones these days and so why reduce the sturdiness and sleekness by designing an easily removable backplate? I could go on...the writing is lazy beyond comprehension. These are paid journalists! The least they can do is actually do some research before they write this BS! Online article here.
