[Tuaw]Apple joining effort to build $2 billion hospital - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Now look at it like this. If you're sick or dying and have heaps of money, wouldnt you want the best hospital and doctors you can get? And its close to where you live/work?

Uh huh.

Sounds like they're building it for themselves.

Apple could cure cancer, end poverty, and buy everyone in the world a house and the OCN troll faithful will still bash them.

The cognitive dissonance is strong with this one.

*promoted*

At least the effort is there for doing something good, even if there's ulterior motives (PR, tax breaks, proving their worth in a medical environment so they win more contracts, etc).

See the answer above ^

If Apple and all the other companies' intentions were in the right place, they would build the hospital in a poor region where it actually needed. There's no need for a $2 billion hospital in Palo Alto.

But on the other hand, do you think a poor region will have the money to purchase additional Apple, HP, etc. products to further furnish the hospital after it's been completed? Not likely. Apple and the other companies see this as an investment from with they will earn returns; it's not a donation for the better of humanity by any means.

I can't blame them for the idea though; it's a pretty good one. However, they certainly should not be hailed for their "donations." It's just another strategic business move.

But I thought cell phones stimulated brain activity. Not killed it. Apple should build a school.
