dude from the first link wrote:The designers at Apple are paid 50% more than their counterparts at other organizations. These designers aren’t working at Apple simply because they’re paid more. They stay at Apple because of the amazing things they get to do there. Rewards are about salary and benefits, but they are also about recognition and being able to do satisfying work that challenges the mind and allows the creative muscles to stretch. Part of this also comes down to ensuring your teams are passionate about innovation and dedicated to the focus of the organization. As Jobs says, he looks for people who are crazy about Apple. So you need to look closely at the people you are hiring and whether you have the right team in the first place.
If thats it, he should look no further than this forum.

And to all you Apple haters who will be making an appearance in this thread. Fuck off in advance, of course. In fact, here's a nice opportunity for me to break out an animated GIF I just made:

I use Apple, but be realistic. How many people are in the type of positions that actually afford the kind of creative muscle stretching mentioned? No organization as large as Apple has that many people doing this kind of work.

Apple is a cool company, but a good company is another matter. Besides, it would be great to have more options. I use Apple because it is the best option out there (IMHO), not because it is some kind of perfect machine that fulfills some ideal of reality.

On a related note my cousin works for whatever the fuck company is behind Halo as a game tester. He's tested them all. Through his job as a game tester he's been able to buy a 2 story 5 bedroom house and support a wife who doesn't work and 3 kids. He says it's not as fun as it sounds, but seriously fuck off.
