I think 1bil would be great, may actually make a diff if it's spent straight to the people and places needed not to most funds or organizations, also stf about your "have you gave a penny" most people are trying to get by with that penny. Apple HAS billions sitting around so why not give back?

As far as I know, there's now law or obligation to anybody to donate and $1M USD is way too far than nothing, Google and Facebook have done the same. If you are criticizing Apple is because for sure you have the moral quality and you lead by sample, right? So how much you have donated to Mexico, or to any other place suffering by a natural (or other) disaster?

Are you kidding me? Mexico as any other place suffering a tragedy like that, needs any penny, Apple has no obligation to give a dime, so $1M USD is very welcome, have you given any donation yet? So to Apple: muchísimas gracias por su ayuda!
