No doubt, AAPL's new high is a milestone, but I will celebrate when it takes its rightful place as the leader of the pack.


Sigh.

Beleaguered once again!



One day there will be no spoon!

It's why the right-to-repair movement is so important.
Apple AirPod batteries are almost impossible to replace,
showing the need for right-to-repair reform

Finance chiefs of the G-20 large economies have endorsed
a landmark move to stop multinationals shifting profits to
low-tax havens.

The government of countries controlling 80% of the world's
commerce agree they should have the money to spend it on
whatever they like, instead of a public sector company like
Apple Inc.

Definitely one of my major gripes about the tax-haven situation.

When corporations are taxed more heavily, all they do is pass those costs along to the consumer. Apple would most certainly do the same.

The other gripe is as you noted Moonray, but this is a non-political thread so I won't wade into those waters.

Louis Rossmann, owner of The Rossmann Repair Group in New York, is doing battle with Apple over the right-to-repair issue.

He's been highlighted on the Apple Product Help thread before, starting here:

Apple Product Help Message Board - Msg: 31586540 (siliconinvestor.com)

He's set up a GoFundMe to introduce a ballot initiative in Massachusetts to get the ball rolling on the issue legislatively. It's a very interesting read:

I think it'd be a pretty interesting showdown... giant corporation vs sovereign nation... It'd make a great movie. Just think, Apple could produce it and sell it.

As it is now some corporations are larger than many sovereign nations and they sure know how to avoid taxes while using infrastructure.

Personally I'm against corporate taxes because corporations just bill customers. I advocate luxury taxes. No one agrees with me though.

Apple wins initial round against Blix in court

This is good news but I can't say if this helps or hurts in the judge's decision upcoming in the EPIC case. My guess is that it doesn't hurt.
