Great. So a man's life is now just worth $52,600. I'd rather choose justice than money. I'm sure Sun's soul isn't happy about this.

In a few months or even days when Apple releases a new product, people would forget about this and wouldn't even care at all anymore. Do we really even care? We're all just a bunch of hypocrites.
