Apple "Apple, the world's most profitable technology company, doesn't design iPhones here. It doesn't run AppleCare customer service from this city. And it doesn't manufacture MacBooks or iPads anywhere nearby. Yet, with a handful of employees in a small office here in Reno, Apple has done something central to its corporate strategy: it has avoided millions of dollars in taxes in California and 20 other states." Sure, this is all legal for companies to do (and Apple obviously isn't alone) but it does show you how much sense of morality companies have. Answer: none. But hey, it's legal, and the law is never wrong, right?

But taxation is theft

Avoiding taxes is like avoiding a thief. Neither is wrong, though in some cases either could be stupid (which is why I pay taxes: I don't want to die. Seriously. You know America is screwed up.).

Apple found a way to do this. Good for them. They have avoided getting stolen from. Now, you go find a way to do this, and don't wish your misery on others who have less of it. ;)
