    What is a company's "right"? Should it pay the lowest wages because it can? Does it have the responsibility to be a good corporate citizen, or just to earn maximum profits?

    It's not at all an easy question. Apple is a company that survives mostly on its marketing prowess. Other such companies (Coke, Nike) have all come under attack for 'exploitation' in recent times, when really all they did was pay prevailing market rates in developing countries. For Apple, the problem may be worse, since it thrives on an image of 'cool', and most people don't think cheap developing country labour is cool.
    Taking it for a neutral standpoint, indeed no ones likes to be exploited and no one should either. Apparently it's a 'Mad World', that we are living it. If you look into another perspective, I would also say "What a Wonderful World!". But looking at the bigger picture, it's not just Apple, IBM, HP and all those big corporates. It's a country issue altogether. That's why I say the issue itself is political because it's after all an issue between the strong and the weak.

    I think sometimes despite how much ethnic and morals we want to pour into this world, it is still very much a natural phenomenal that strong wield the weak. Instead of looking at how third parties can help to balance the situation, perhaps the parties involve should be the first to look at the issue and strength up.

    That being said, it doesn't mean we should just ignore the problem altogether. But seriously what can you do to help ? Boycott the product ? So this will help the situation better ? It will make the weak stronger ? No it will not, such extreme actions do not resolve the fundamental issue and definitely will not help on long term. Besides it's not something that individuals like us talking about it and going against it will help.

    If you think about it in another perspective, despite some countries labors are exploited, but did it not bring in more job opportunities for these people ? What are these people doing before they are in their current job ? I know it's not an easy subject to talk about all together because after all, we are just 3rd parties.

    If an individual is so hard up about the capitalism nature currently, perhaps what he/she can do is start working from things around him/herself instead of voicing out into the open about how unfair life are for others.

    Nature has not been forgiving to humanity, to be fair is basically going against nature (That's how I look at it). I feel it is necessary to look at the same things from multiple different facades. Stay objectives and tackle the problem from different levels. Don't just lump them altogether, and expect things to work out better. It doesn't

    won't be suprise if there is such special edition. Anyway, unscrupulous sellers (who will sooner or later appear) will scribble something and claim it's signed by Steve Job.

One very true aspect is indeed that Windows have a faithful bunch of users in the corporate world. Not that these users don't want to change to Mac, but because the very OS they are using today is still Windows XP. It's the support and the software that are stuck with this operating system.

    As a Mac user myself, it is true I still use Windows, for some particular reasons such as M$ Office is better in Windows, M$ PM, M$ Visio and VMWare infrastructure client for administration of VMWare systems.

    Basic functionalities such as listening to music, watching of HD videos, surfing net, VoiP conferencing, and so forth are very much, if not better, just as good as the M$ Windows. If it's about basic users jumping the ship, what APple has to offer is a much better option for hassle free usage.

    If today it's about games, yes I pretty much agree Windows still have an edge over, seriously not because Windows is better, but because of the R&D cost invested in the 3D engines that are already written for M$ platform. Also for this industry, performance is their KPI. It's much easier to squeeze performance on a platform they have understood for years, than to move into a new platform with different API and different optimization required.

    Maybe iPhone high sales figures has hurt competing brands. Symbian > Anna > Symbian Belle. Fixed focus > Full Focus. Nokia $95 M loss as sales plunge.
