Apple denies Channel Islands move

Apple is denying rumours that it is to move some iTunes Music Store operations to the Channel Islands. A story, which appeared in the UK's "Daily Telegraph", maintained that the company intended to exploit tax loopholes to sell music VAT-free from Guernsey. This has been refuted by Apple.

"This report is not true," Apple said in a statement.

Even if it was true, a lot of things like this happen. I still don't like that you have to buy Apple's machine to make Apple's OS work. That's even worse than Microsoft : It can work on about everything compared to MacOS : you don't have to buy Microsoft's machine to make things work, it will even work on Intel-Macs. But Linux works even in TVs and the two big ones are still not able to do this.

Even if this did happen, does it really matter? We still get the same great prices and products from Apple, so everyone wins right? Right?

You've just got to love rumors lol. But Mostly, there is always some truth to rumors, so maybe there is just a fraction of truth in there somewhere. The only problem is, we have nothing to base it on lol.
