Re: "I love Apple because they take the most money from me"

"Would you refuse to buy a product from a company that makes "too much" money because you think they're taking advantage of you?"

Let's see, a real life case:

Olive oil; Brand X costs 2.5 times the amount of Brand Y, a store brand at the local supermarket.

Same ingredients, subject to identical health regulations, and, Oh look, the fine print on the bottle says both are produced by the same manufacturer!

I buy brand Y, brand X can go hang.

"Would you refuse to buy a house whose price has gone up at 5x the rate of inflation over the past couple decades, because the seller would be making too much money off the sale?"

What the? I don't even... Uh, I'd refuse because the house would cost me way over its true long term market value.

So, yes, I'd refuse because the seller is making too much money off the sale, and I'd be losing a fortune!

Geez, what's it like to have so much credit that 'cost' and 'value' are mere abstract concepts to you?
