We’re getting our fair share of emails (40 and counting as of this posting) complaining that Jimmy Carter doesn’t belong on Apple’s home page, regardless of the well-documented political views of Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs.
Many point out that there is a clear feeling that this year’s Nobel Peace Prize was not awarded to Carter for his accomplishments per se, but rather as a “slap in the face” to President George W. Bush for his administration’s policy regarding Iraq.
Clearly, as evidenced by our Mail’s In box, there are a healthy amount of conservative Mac users out there who do not feel that Apple’s home page represents their views even though they love their Macs. We wonder if Apple knows, in the words of one email, that, “they are alienating many of their customers by posting Steve’s propaganda? Can you imagine the outcry if Ronald Reagan was featured on Apple’s home page, instead?”
