Apple in the Triangle and Social Justice - The same as it ever was

I’m a big Apple fan. I’ve bought into the company’s “walled garden” of devices, computers, and online services for several years.

And, as a gay man, I applaud Apple for its long-standing workplace policies prohibiting LGBTQ discrimination.

You might think I’m excited about the big announcement that Apple is setting up shop and bringing 3,000 jobs to the Triangle.

I’m underwhelmed.
