Apple Apple doesn't have a particularly healthy relationship with the press; it has sued websites for publishing information it didn't like, and has tried to keep information under wraps that a journalist tried to uncover via the Freedom of Information Act. Now, however, it has tried to prevent The Times from publishing an article about Steve Jobs.

So since you don't care about business practices which give you a nifty product to buy; child labor and dangerous work conditions wouldn't be an issue for you? You'd be ok with promoting such business practices by throwing more money at companies which do that sort of thing?

I'm not saying that this is what Apple is doing; I suggest it as an example of what "I don't care how the company does it long as I get my shinny thingy" leads.

I don't promote companies which build single OS targeted hardware unless no other option exists for that device type. I don't promote how MS does business unless they provide the only viable option for a software need. I don't promote companies known to employ unfair trade practices outside of computers either. I'd rather give my money to a company which demonstrates traits I can agree with. But, how you spend your money and what business practices you promote, of course, your own decision as a consumer.
