Apple: Sneaky gits who apologise in secret and aren't keen on tax
Apple aren't like those other nasty companies. They have an ethos and smooth curves and nothing at all to do with lousy maps, suicidal Chinese factory workers, a repulsion to tax and seemingly constant legal action.
What's this about tax? Well, it turns out Apple have paid less than 2% corporation tax on its profits outside America, just like Facebook and Starbucks. The latter caused huge amounts of outrage, but Apple will probably swerve it because they've got Genius Bars rather than shops. It makes all the difference.
It is probably worth pointing out that Apple aren't actually doing anything illegal, but that hasn't stopped people getting worked up in the past.
We shouldn't expect an apology either, because Apple really aren't keen on those.
When the company was ordered by a UK court to publicly display a notice that Samsung didn't copy the iPad with their Galaxy tablet, they hid it. So sneaky are Apple, that they put their muttered 'sorry' at the foot of a page and that, when you scroll down to read it, the image of an iPad automatically resizes so that the text to always appears below the fold. See for yourself.
The code works out how tall your browser is and makes sure you don't see the apology when you land on Apple's homepage.
