Apple Well, this is an interesting double standard. Remember Apple's reaction to Palm trying to tap into iTunes? They were pretty pissed, right? Well, it seems that in Apple's world, it's not okay to access their services unauthorised, but when Apple needs to do the same to someone else's services, it's suddenly not a problem. As it turns out, Apple violated Facebook's terms of service, knowingly, and willingly.

Facebook and Apple are companies which are pretty pure embodiments of evil


I'm not sure about a stupid comment more of a meaningless comment - and I full admit to describing Apple as evil myself. What does evil mean, evil like Mengele, Stalin, evil like Serial killers, sadistic torturers what does evil mean in this context?

If evil means narrowly selfish, banal, incapable of or unwilling grasping the needs others or your effect on others then that would about fit. Arguably that would be a significant subset of the evil of Mengele etc.
