    Mean as in actually running the world(nonpersonal use but business). Like as in server.


    (Still trying to dig up current stats on that. Lastest article I keep seeing was 2006 lol. It was about how Windows finally tops Unix on servers. Anyone with current stat links please share with me I wanna see.)

    Thats the main reason why almost everyone in the world is broke.
    Poorer countrys do jobs for way too less. and because of this and the improvements of transportation the u.s. is outsourcing tons of manufacturing jobs, causing people in the u.s. not make money due to no jobs. and to think all this because a few corperate big wigs want to make a quick buck.
    its always you are either really rich or really poor.

    This is horrible. 10 people in one company don't just kill themselves.

    when you have a ****** life, why would you want to live? You work hard all day - stress, and then you have to deal with barely having enough money to get by - stress.
    if your dead the stress ends

    Low Production Cost for 200% Profit. Apple must be one of the companies that makes the more profit out of their Products.

    Like most things sold in the US, if it was made here 80% of us couldn't afford to buy them because production cost would be astronomical even at our minimum wage. It's kinda the way the world works at the moment. I doubt you'd be willing to work at a factory for 70 hours a week for $295 a week. Thats $4.21 an hour average with 30 hours of it at overtime which I'm guessing is time and a half like here.
    Always remember that you are unique....just like everyone else.

    Agreed on this one. The cost of producing something domestically would jump the price of the products. And then people would argue about the price being so high. It really is a hard battle to win for companies.
