This is about destructive, INTENTIONAL recruiting away of important employees in order to damage competitors, a practice that had become quite common at the time. As I remember, Microsoft was the originator of this practice, but escapes without even mention in this anti-Apple/Google propaganda lawsuit. Naturally, the loathsome Microsoft Pando will keep us informed.

"Apple decided long ago that its success would depend on increasing profits instead of market share. The company still considers its computers and tablets and smartphones as luxury goods instead of commodity products, and it prices them accordingly."

"An industry captivated by dollar signs simply can’t understand one of the few companies whose sole purpose is to accrue as many as possible."

More ugly anti-Apple lies and propaganda from what has become one of the worst anti-Apple sites.

Google makes most of its money selling ads to businesses who want to sell something to those 1.5 billion users.

That's a good one, leekelly!  As if someone who would write "This whole thing smacks of blind devotion to the cult of Apple"would ever buy an iPhone!  You're a hater / propagandist creep.

I don't think they care about Facebook or even America. They're pawns to be sacrificed in a bigger game.

You're wasting your time Paul. The article above has enraged the haters. You can't say anything good about Steve Jobs without enraging the vast army of unemployed Microsoft gamer creeps that patrol the tech internet from their parents basement all day long.

 @ajthedj Why Apple? Google and Microsoft pay far lower rates than Apple:

Microsoft tax rate: 

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/07/27/us-microsoft-tax-idUSTRE76Q6OB20110727

 

"Things were rosy in the giant software company's just-ended fiscal fourth quarter, which produced record sales of nearly $17.4 billion, a 30 percent increase in after-tax profit, and a 35 percent gain in earnings per share.

But for the Internal Revenue Service and foreign tax authorities, things weren't so rosy. Microsoft reported only $445 million in taxes in the U.S. and other foreign countries, just 7 percent of its $6.32 billion in pre-tax profit."

 

Dummies Guide to Microsoft's Nevada Tax Dodge:

"In 1997, Microsoft et al. lobbied to reduce Washington State's Royalty Tax from 1.5% to .5%, a threefold reduction. This wasn't low enough. The company decided to open a small Reno, Nevada office to dodge the tax completely.

Between 1997 - 2011, the company used its Nevada office to avoid $1.51 billion in Washington state taxes, interest and penalties. If you include impacts from the company's lobbying and calculate its savings at the original 1.5% rate, it's saved $4.37 billion."

"Farhad Manjoo graduated from Cornell University in 2000. In 2008, he was hired as a staff writer for Slate magazine, covering technology, journalism and politics."

 

Farhad's credits should also mention that he worked as an anti-Apple propagandist for The Mercury News, which is owned by the Bill Gates Foundation. Then for NPR, also as an anti-Apple propagandist, then on to more anti-Apple propaganda for Microsoft Slate.

Microsoft has no choice. They need a tablet OS to keep their gamer geeks happy, but those geeks don't want to lose all the software they worked so hard to pirate.
