    I'm not sure if "values" is the right word. They got there by signing an
    exclusive deal with IBM back when IBM made the only "serious" business
    computers and the Mac was thought to be a toy. They stayed there by using
    unethical and illegal tactics to coerce other vendors to bend to their
    will - something only a monopoly can do.
