  • Ed Husic has accused Apple of misleading the IT Pricing Inquiry. In relation to conflicting Apple testimony from a Congressional Inquiry, Husic said that he had concerns that the committee inquiry has been misled, either deliberately or accidently.

    Class action law suits are a waste of time. If the affected customers get any more than $10, i'll be surprised.

    Also, any "cause" on facebook is a complete joke. Kony2012

    Is it just me, or are those teeshirts a bit kiddy?
