    i find that funny.. consider Intel just got slapped with billions of fine for unethical business practice in Europe and US for unfair practice of subsidizing PC manufacturer to sell exclusive intel chips.

  5. the microsoft windows has an old bug that is so rare that it has never been patched, plus it is relatively easy to fix. when you get the unauthorized error you have to reinstall windows, inconvenient yes, but easy. as for windows being a copy of mac's os lololololol what a *****! apple took freeBSD and slapped their logos on it.

    as for ethical, apple hasnt innovated crap, but they sure can sue. and their eula's will eventually lead to lawsuits and their down fall. you cant keep screwing consumers, consumers will bite back......harder too

    Why not?
     
  10. Pretty much any company that buys from foxconn will not even be considered on the ethical list; or at least one might think so. I wonder just how many companies out there in the hardware production (of any type) sector that abuse their employees. Yet if we take a look at Microsoft, Adobe, or Intel; I wonder if they at all buy from such companies.
     
  11. Apple is not on the list; makes A LOT of sense.

    Hitachi? Haha, they have yet to return my drive after 3 weeks from RMA that broke down within 5 months.
     
  13. Intel ? Rigggghhhhht.
     
  14. Why shouldn't they be on the list? They have been doing some great work for past few months/years in new types of technologies.

    AMD Fanboy?

    How does intel who has been found for guilty for unethical issues against AMD have any credibilty to make this list?

    Well this is annual and I don't think Intel or Microsoft has done anything bad in 2011 so yea they can be there. Remember annual means previous years do not matter.
     
  19. About one month early for april fools.......

    Microsoft/ethical = oxymoron
