Summary: Apple is liked neither by Western nor Eastern groups who look after the world we all share
“Chinese Environmental Groups Say Apple Ignores Health, Pollution Issues” says this report brought to our attention by a reader, who helps confirm what we already knew about Apple based on Western environmental groups.
Thirty-six Chinese environmental groups have accused Apple of repeatedly failing to address concerns about pollution and the health of workers in factories that make components for the company’s computers and digital devices.
John from the FSF dents: “Apple using nonstandard screws: http://ur1.ca/2ylgw. Intent seems obvious.” The FSF has many reasons to dislike Apple given that, for example, “no GPL apps [are allowed] for Apple’s App Store” (it’s a little more complex than that).
In many people’s eyes, Apple represents arrogance, selfishness, and extreme consumerism. It also opposes software freedom more zealously than Microsoft in many cases. An Apple a day keeps liberty away. █
