Apple has gotten a lot of mileage over the years portraying itself as a liberal -- or at least, progressive -- company. It first burst onto the national scene with its "1984" ad urging viewers to shatter the status quo -- at least in terms of choosing computers. The company's later "Think Different" commercials included images of Gandhi and John Lennon. Its current Mac vs. PC ads have a laid-back hipster representing the Mac, while a conservative-looking schmo portrays the PC.


Apple not Liberal?

If you think Apple is anything but very left leaning, take a look at the Radio stations offered on iTunes. Every lefty with a signal slightly more powerful than a walkie talkie is listed. Then try to find Rush, Laura Ingram, Sean Hannity or any Conservative voices who have huge rating that dwarf the libs. Eventually if you look hard enough, you may find conservative stations (KXNT and WPHT), but it sure isn't easy.
Rush, incidentally, has been a 100% Mac user for years, and often praises them on the show.
I don't get why Libs profess free speech, and then work so hard to limit the public's access to it.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
