If you don't like billionaires, then boycott their products and services. Do you have Microsoft Windows installed on your computer? Use Linix instead. Have Microsoft Office? Use OpenOffice. She mentions Google. Don't want them to have that much money then use Yahoo or Yandex.

Simplistic, but some truth in it. Best thing is not to have an emotional allegience to any one product. It's why Apple users set my teeth on edge - they are being ruthlessly manipulated by a machine much cleverer than them.

I am a mac user but I don't consider myself to be manipulated by the machine or by Apple. I made the decision to go Mac and was not forced in any way by the Apple company.

You only *think* you weren't forced - that's how cleverly and ruthlessly they are manipulating you.
