Even after the reports of the working conditions at Foxconn such as the suicide nets and the living conditions in the dormitories, the egregious patent lawsuits against Samsung and the unbridled stupidity of Apple fan boys, the way iTunes nearly destroyed the music industry and the total failure to enable independent artists with a new avenue for success, I would buy Apple products. I like my ipad.
Apple products are fine if you like to have all your electronic devices synchronized and hooked up together. However, I am not that tech savvy and do not need a lot of synchronization. Apple products are pretty pricey and, while some would find this worth the investment, I would not spend money that way.
