  1. I don’t use iPhone or Apple products, as they are incompatible with Linux. Would be nice to know whether or not these and/or similar APPs are available for Android. I know Google Drive is, though I’ve had trouble getting it to download and install.

    For those of you who do not yet know, not only is Apple anti Open-Source (as is MicroSoft), but recently it was revealed how Apple uses cheap Chinese slave labor to build their products. The building burned to the ground, killing almost everyone inside… And this on the week they released the iPhone5.

    The news media reported about a building that not only housed 79,000 workers (not a mis-print), but they lived and worked in the same building, 7 days a week at long excruciating hours; all of this so they wouldn’t have to pay AMERICANS to assemble their products. Yet they want AMERICANS to shuck out hundreds of dollars for the iPhone (which by the way is far INFERIOR to the Android) and make them billions in the process, all in the name of Wall Street, who is also screwing America left and right.

    If all of this offends anyone, especially Apple users, I apologize for the inconvenience, but NOT for the truth.

    I am all for ALL Americans beginning their own freelancing, contracting, and/or small home-based business. But I am also vehemently against buying ANYTHING from a company who exploits foreign workers at the expense of American jobs and supporting violations of human rights here or abroad. Apple is guilty of all of the above.

  2. Very good written information. It will be useful to anyone who utilizes it,
    as well as yours truly :). Keep up the good work – looking
    forward to more posts.
