Delia, I agree. I can't stand them as a company - just like Goldman sachs - manipulators with fake smiles, trying to brand themselves as the complete opposite of what they really are.

I know quite a few analysts who still cover the stock and get good corporate access, who all say its run by complete **nt's

And this is how people see it!? :shock:
I have this purely pragmatic approach and actually would like to own one of the macbooks, the thin, light, robust casing and with the illuminated keyboard but only if I can install some linux on it.

Yes, people do actually dislike hypocrites and smugness - even if they do knock-out some great products!

Eee, I actually thought I asked about something just opposite. For me both Apple and Microsoft are the exploiters and abusers with that difference that Apple seems more monopolistic.

Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London's central criminal court 1674-1913

Fully searchable. So try typing in your surname and see what you get.

I found it fascinating. Blimey, routine execution for shop-lifting! They seem to have toned that down by the mid 1700's to 7 years transportation (i.e. being shipped to Australia)!

And you think SG is harsh!

A mad rush for the post Christmas sales is nothing new, but I was struck by the photos from London in this article (the top 5 pix, the others are from northern England), talk about over-representation of one race > Chinese!
