>Apple can in no way challenge the U.S. government on this AND come out on top.
1, Apple announce they are now a Swiss corporation - their money is all offshore anyway to avoid tax.
2, They very publicly close the cupertino office and move their whizzkids to some nice offices in Monoco - the kit is made in china anyway
3, They run a series of TV ads saying they have been forced to do this by oppresive laws introduced by the current president, and the following list of local politicians who are up for re-election soon.
4, Californian governor being doorstepped by media asking how democrats allowed secret US military agencies to force their beloved Apple to move abroad.
