The only difference between them and everyone else, is they're suing everyone.

So it looks like everyone but Apple are the noobs. If all the corps. that keep getting sued by Apple stopped fighting for what little pennies Mr and Mrs normal people had, they could man up and counter sue for harassment charges.

But seriously, I'm hoping the constant wave of negative press they're bringing upon themselves is reflected in sales figures at some point. I do not wish for Apple to cease to exist, I just wish an unpleasant existence upon them.

The thing I have noticed about Apple consumers is that they mostly don't know anything about all the suing and crazy stuff surrounding foxconn because they are the 'simple' users in the tech world. Also the ones I know that know about the stuff love their Apple products so much they choose to ignore everything that Apple is doing. Apple hit the perfect market - get all the simple and ignorant people buying your products and it doesn't matter what the company does people will keep coming.

Like Walmart.

In fact I read a recent news article on the issues surrounding foxconn and Apple and one of the Apple CEOs was quoted as saying "people care more about the next iProduct than the working conditions in China". They know their customer base and what the care about.

It's one thing to point out all the rediculous lawsuits Apple is involved in. But trying to act like Apple is the only one who using Chinese labor is on the verge of idiocy. Every single company that makes the products in our sig rigs has the same exact problems. Apple is the only one doing something about it though. You don't see MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte or AMD getting 3rd party inspectors to help them.

I agree. The blind hate of Apple on OCN is so illogical, I wish they would see that they are worse than Apple sheeple at times. Just jump on the bandwagon and hate away.

Kodak sued Apple, Apple is simply asking the court whether it could sue back because it believes that a few of its patents are shared with Kodak while the latter disgrees. If there's anyone to blame it's Kodak and their last ditch effort to gain some revenue by suing a plethora of companies at once to save them from bankruptcy.

I'm guessing you didn't see the third-party report by the Fair Labor Association saying that the Apple premises were by far in above average quality to other companies in general. Not to mention that the facilities used by Apple are also used by a dozen of other major tech companies.

As overpriced; the iPad, iPhone and the Macbook air are completely in the same price range as exactly similar devices.

The suing thing is out of control, but this case in particular wasn't initiated by Apple.

hmm. Is it stupid to think that apple would Kodak o pay them in patents instead of money? So then apple can move their rampage on to cameras and printer manufacturers. Quite ridiculous, but could you honestly be surprised if that was the case?
