Apple doesn't have to jack up their prices to pay for this. They can use some of the profit that they illegally made due to their product being priced artificially low in the market because they didn't pay the taxes they were suppose to at the time. Taking a financial windfall you weren't entitled to isn't a financial hit it's simply a correction. I'm not a fan of taxes either but we should all be playing by the same rules. If any other corporation couldn't have gotten this same deal the neither should Apple.
