Well if you broke it down completely, energy is never created or destroyed, it only changes states. So all the energy that will ever exist was created at the beginning of the universe and is simply stored in different states.

And all energy is atomic energy, the difference comes in how we decide to extract that energy.

Also, your average non-geek doesn't care about an apple tax or linux, they see all the "cool" things you can do on an apple machine so they go out and buy one.

Lets not forget that there are a bunch of people out there who call the Nintendo Wii "Nintendo Sports" and aren't even aware you can buy different games for it.
