As per tradition, Apple has changed its homepage to an image of Civil Rights leader and minister Martin Luther King Jr. in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The quote used alongside the photo is one of King’s stating: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” This is similar to Tim Cook’s stated mission for Apple as a company focused on being a “force for good” in the world.

During his tenure at Apple, Cook has often spoken about the impact King has had on his own life. While accepting a lifetime achievement award from his alma mater Auburn University in 2013, Cook talked about how King was responsible for shaping his passionate views regarding human right and equality.

While Apple doesn’t usually give its employees the day off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, in previous years it has set up a gift-matching program, donating an extra $50 for every voluntary hour worked by employees. It’s no yet clear whether it will be repeating the same thing for 2016.

Happy MLK Day, everyone!

Deals of the Day

    I admire MLK but it’s a shame that not many people have actually read his sermons or more than factoids/quotes. I think people’s (especially millennials) positions on a lot of religious and racial issues would be challenged by actually reading what he taught, preached, and wrote.

    • Tallest Skil

      He wrote religious heresy and communist propaganda. I’m not sure what you plan to challenge with that.

    What Apple are doing for others is, assisting the Rockefellers, Rothschilds and associated demons in dumbing down the general populace, pushing on technology for use in governmental spying, and being complicit in all atrocities commited via such groups. If you like eating GM Frankenfoods, foodstuffs laced with poisons such as Monsanto Roundup Glycogen, etc., politican terrorism, false flag terror events etc., then just carry on. If you find such activity repulsive then remember that Apple are complicit and hand-in-hand with those responsible. Apple are just another branch of the demon power.

      I will carry on! Thank you for your support!

      • bIg hIlL

        Your comment doesn’t make sense but there you go.

      • Aliass

        Really? I thought Rick’s response to your screed was right on the mark.

      • bIg hIlL

        Perhaps you would be kind enough to explain in details, as personally I cannot see any link between what Ludwig wrote and my original comment. Then again, I am stupid.

      • Aliass

        You’re not stupid. You’re oblivious to irony.

      Now where did I put that tin foil hat . . . . or should I be looking for someone to cast a circle of protection from my demon devices ?

    Enjoy the annual MLK plagiarists and adulterer’s day.
