So your basic premiss is Apple has accumulated more than $100 billion in cash reserves by through plagiarism  and  deceit?

Why can't other companies make this much surplus profit  through  authentic and innovative business plans? Surely, over time, substance trumps vapor in the marketplace.

You have to admit Apple is an amazing company if they can earn $100 billion dollars more than they need by only copying others and producing significantly inferior products and services.  Does it make sense Apple could  enjoy this level of  success for an extended period of  time  depending only on marketing and public relations trickery?  Not only did they fool counless consumers but they also fooled thousands of professional investment fund managers.

...I do admit.

Now let's go for a little mental workout (...as underrated as it is to physical ones...).

Look around you. Right there, wherever you are.

Can you see, red, yellow, blue, green, a million colors, in addition to just black and white...?...You can...?...Good!

Now, could it be possible they do make excellent products and are also douchbags?

...Do you find there might be a remote, tiny, tiny, non-methapysical but rather very tangible possibility that dual "truth" might occur?
