["Apple is the cool boss to Microsoft's authoritarian: there's a beer cooler in the breakroom, and everyone calls him by his first name, but, unlike the corporate managers, he just can't afford to provide you with health care or dental or a retirement plan. 'But it's cool, he's so nice, and the office is really open, he lets us telecommute three days a week, and I just really like working somewhere where I get to be creative and respected at the same time.' You do. You love being creative for your work. You love your job. That's why you've got a Mac."]  Jacobin Magazine 10:39 AM
