There was a very funny vignette from Steve Job's appearance before the Cupertino City Council about building their new "iSpaceship" building there on June 7th. After Mr Jobs went through the [obligatory California] description of how ecological friendly this project would be, one council member hinted/asked for Apple to furnish free WiFi for the city. Jobs, wearing his capitalist hat, both mentioned the taxes Apple was paying and that there was also a location in Mountainview. He also offered to provide free WiFi in exchange for no taxes. The council member shut-up on that riposte.

It must be strange in the upper echelons of Apple at times - they are obviously Californian libs and they even have the Gore-acle on their Board of Directors, but when they see the anti-capitalist movement of the current left, does it even twinge?

Ah, yes, I almost forgot, Algore, the great hypocrite, who warns us against rising sea levels, yet purchases a mansion on ocean-front property.

The "Green" capitalist buys carbon-offsets to appease his liberal guilt!
