    @holgate @migurski Yeah, they’re gone out of business, not been bought by a co and shut their service down. I’m strict!

    @tomstuart I wish the U of Chicago issue wasn’t so: “You’re either a fascist or a left-wing, wimpy, PC nutcase.” Like all issues I guess.

    I rarely use Amazon because of it, and now, for first time, seriously wondering if I should switch from Apple. Bet I won’t tho. Idiot.

    Given I dislike Amazon, Starbucks etc for paying little tax, Apple’s response makes me feel rightly icky about spending so much with them.
