If you boycott over state Trans-bans, you better not sell Apple Products in Saudi Arabia.

Par for the course. Boycott/bitch/protest US areas where they hold different opinions but continue to conduct business with vastly worse places that feature draconian Islam based laws/views/beliefs.

The only valid targets for liberal aggression are ever white male republicans. The only valid culprits of any crime are white male republicans.
It doesn't matter who did whatever fcked up thing, if you only dig deep enough into the abstract, it's clearly the fault of a cabal of white male republicans.

Big difference between doing business in a company, and actually spending your money to sponsor and support someone with ideologues you don't agree with.

Kind of like the difference between buying gas made from sauidi oil to put in your car, or sending your money to an oppressive organization.

Not that you dumbfucks know the difference!!

China is practically Jacking off on Steve Jobs grave, and Timmy Boy is worried about a few Americans, that want to make Ameirca great again.

Tim shouldn't be pissing "US" off. He's going to need us.

The Billion Chinese and the other 5 Billion in Asia are going to be ejoying their $69(US) HongWei "Looks just like a Goddamed iPhone", Hand Set.
It's not like they don't have the specs, plans, and factories and know how. And No they didn't have to hack anyone... (hangs head in shame) We gave them the Fucking thing!

BayAreaObserver says

Apple CEO Tim Cook will host a fundraiser with House Speaker Paul Ryan next week as the iPhone maker tries to strengthen its relationships with key Republicans — despite its decision to pull support for the GOP convention because of its distaste for Donald Trump.

The bottom line explains both these decisions and the response to "trans-bans." Tim Cook made his career and much of Apple's shareholder value by outsourcing, which Paul Ryan would facilitate but Donald Trump might jeopardize. Making a statement about a "trans-ban" costs almost nothing, and maintaining customer loyalty may even have required it. Buying American components, and paying American wages to assemble them, would cost a lot more. Making matters worse, since Kodak and other American companies failed to develop salable OLED displays (after inventing much of the technology in them), American components might no longer even make the best products. Nearly 100% of Apple shareholder value results from the combination of Steve Jobs (who excelled at selling at premium prices) and Tim Cook (who excelled at obtaining premium components and assembling them at low enough cost to be profitable). For example, when Steve Jobs popularized the iPad, HP tried to copycat with the TouchPad, but failed because HP couldn't compete with Tim Cook on quality and cost. Compare the market caps and 10y price histories of AAPL vs HPE+HPQ, and see for yourself: AAPL has climbed 10x in 10 years, and is now worth 10x more than HPE+HPQ, due to HP's net negative return during the same period. "It's not personal...it's strictly business."
