Illuminati handshake?

Billionaire thumb bump?

A triangulated ‘finger graph’ depicting the ”Ireland-Holland-Other Place’ tax wheeze?

We may never know.

    Ah, the company that avoids paying tax by being based in Ireland collaborating with the band that avoids paying tax by being based out of Ireland. Love it!

    Presumably the connection is that spending prolonged periods of time with the output of both organisations is a kind of Chinese torture.

        Love music. Always thought U2 sounded like wet shite. Never felt love for technology per se, but definitely dislike reported labour practices around apple. Mostly, love puns. Chinese torture was one.

    There is so much wrong with this photo.

    With this goes the last sliver of cred U2 had left (they didn’t have one but let’s just pretend they did).

    Bono. I would. I just would. Can’t explain it, don’t want to analyse it. but I would, in a heartbeat.

    Didn’t one of them rapper lads do this with Samsung a while back? I mean free album, not finger triangle.

    Cheers Apple. You’ve lavishly re-affirmed why I never buy your things. My money was on a Black Eyed Peas reunion, but U2 serve the same hilarious purpose.

    Terrible people doing terrible things. Bono with all his “Africa needs our help” should surely realise that half the minerals involved in the iPhone 6 come from war torn countries IN Africa at a cost that is incalculable in both lives and destruction to habitats. the next time you see or hear this fat git spouting about the third world let him know. Also their music hasn’t been interesting or relevant since god was a child.

    ” […] trotting out aging Irish rockers after you’ve wowed the world with the first glimpse of the glorious Apple Watch? That’s not thinking different. That’s a pity-fupp for a band that’s lost its edge, and an unfortunate bum note for a company that’s rarely perceived as tone-deaf.”

    Fair play to them. €100 straight up in album sales when revenue from music is falling.
    Quality bit of business with one of the biggest companies in the world. Brilliant.
