Anonymous, 18 Apr 2019Apple hated by others way too much because what it did. It's seen as Satan of the gadget world... moreWell if anything gets into a sect, (it does not matter if it is aPple or wackos in Wako) then they will usually be opposed to any other sects or atheists (and well that could be seen as a sect too).
And the other way round, you do not have to be in a specific other sects to dislike say Scientology, atheist see them (at the least) as crazed as those in other sects do.
Of course aPple would never see them self as a sect. A sect usually does not, they 'just' tend to believe that only they got the truth and the rest of the world is wrong or less worthty.
Generally anyone claiming to have found the right answer or an optimal solution to anything non-trivial should be meet with doubt and not worship.
As Voltaire said (quoted from memory) "Cherish those that seek the truth, but shun those that claim to have found it."
(And this goes for all religions, sciences and politics just the same)
Apple hated by others way too much because what it did. It's seen as Satan of the gadget world. It's fanatically loved by their followers / collaborator, and cursed by everything else. If Satan donate to *something popular here*, of course everything outside his circle will suspect his intentions, fueling their hatred even more.
*Run away before fanatics burn me in iFIRE.
Apple donate for restoration to get media attention. Google just standing there having the highest search results for Notre Dame without donating anything. Lol.
i am an android fan and i hate apple for being greedy. but this is something they shouldn't be called out for- the notre dame cathedral is important to catholicism, architecture history, the european history, and heck maybe even the whole of humanity. yes, it could be publicity, but then to notre dame cathedral it could use all the help it can get.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2019so you are saying that even other companies like L'oreal and Total is doing this for publicity... moreWell this might sound harsh, but it better be with the purpose of giving the company a better image! If done because who ever got the power would like to do so from their personal feelings, they would strictly misuse their position. (No matter the cause)
But in my book it is a much more positive way to boost the image for any company than pouring money into some ad-campaign.
notre dame doesnt needyour money they are rich.

Apple donates to Notre Dame rebuilding
You: Why not for hungry kids! Horrible company! Why not for global warming. I sent you links stating that Apple is using 100% renewable energy and is the greenest company of the sector. You ignored that. Google "apple donations to charities" "apple donation to schools" "apple donation to tsunami" "wildfires".
If apple tomorrow donate to world hunger you will still accuse them for public stunt
This is what GSMArena has become unfortunately. Basically a place to just spread hate. Nothing else.

I can launch a startup right now and be 00FF00 green. Yet I'm not helping to solve global warming or hunger or the lack of clean water...
Why are they donating now for this and not for other, more meaningful and less PR-worthy issues? Plus, on that kind of stuff, they get tax breaks. Which means the government is actually paying.

What else do you want them to do?
How can you people turn everything into something bad?
If anything think about how many "sheep" will follow Apple and donate. There's nothing bad at this.
I don't know how the Tax Laws work in the US so I'm only guessing on the numbers, but Apple will claim that any donation they make is tax deductible. Apple will end up paying around 10 percent of the donation and Apple buyers will pay the other 90 percent.
