I voted Apple. When your phone won't work, your phone blows up in your pocket and Apple deems it your fault, or they don't cover their PCs if you're a smoker-even though that isn't stated you're becoming an Evil Empire. Don't get me started on the iPad, sounds like a proprietary feminine hygeine product from Steve Jobs. But hey it's wireless and has downloadable apps at the iTunes store :rolleyes:

I didn't vote because I just have no idea. The evilest corporation could also be the best at deceiving the public into buying a good guy image. :ph34r:

I am going with Google. Some people know how I feel about them. Or what I think they will do in the future!
Next would be Apple.

Telecoms. Monopolized by government. Protected by government. The reason internet prices are so expensive - why we pay so much and receive so little in so many parts of the country.

As much as I dislike Apple and Microsoft as companies, how in the world can you not vote for RIAA as long as they are on the list?
