This is why I love Apple (and incidentally, probably why a lot of LGBT folk think Apple is the best computer company in the world):
Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees' same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person's fundamental rights -- including the right to marry -- should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.
I applaud Apple for their leadership, but I think with over $20 billion in the bank, $100K is a little cheap.
