    Ironically Volsunga, Walt was a bit of a dick. He paid his employees incredibly small wages and wrongly pointed the finger at numerous people during the H.U.A.C hearings, ruining their careers.

    Speaking as a dedicated Apple user, even I know that Steve Jobs isn`t the most personable person in the world. He`s been called ruthless, cold, and distant, all excellent qualities for a CEO of a cutting-edge company, but poor for a human being.

    @Padiddle: He`s paid out in bonuses and stock options, the $1 is just for accounting and tax purposes so that he can remain on Apple`s health insurance. Listing his salary as $0 would bork all the accounting spreadsheets.

    You can spend half a day in an Ikea store, and even get free coffee (weekdays). An Apple store will only hold your attention for about ten minutes.

    I own quite a bit of ikea stuff, I`ve found that if you look closely at stuff, you can pretty much tell what will stay together well and what is sturdy from the crap.
    I also live in a house with 4 ipods. We own more ikea stuff than apple though so I can rest easy.

    Ikea is a useful shop, some stuff is excellent and cheap, other things are not so good. I choose not to buy from Apple, but why someone would `hate` them is beyond me- if you do not like their product, or dislike the companies ethics then do not buy their products.

    i enjoy goinging to ikea, while i hate feeling like a dick in the apple store becuase my ipod`s broken and i can`t fix it. Aslo my wardrobe + bed + cactus is less than what i pay for than my two ipods that run out of warrenty and my third one. and all the money i spent when i felt nice enough to get music legally. ahh i hate apple.
