Much of what you had to say is easily refuted or will be seen as exaggerated. At the same time, I’m not unsympathetic to your view. I too would like to see Apple do better in many of these areas.

But remember that the major stockholders are the ones who bend the company in the direction they want. Tim Cook the person might have very different ideas if he owned the company rather than being an employee.

By and large, those big stockholders like what Apple does. You and I would like some things to be different, but we don’t matter, do we?
