Trying to get a straight answer to one of life's simplest questions
One of the great public services Apple (AAPL) offers in its flagship stores -- besides free repairs at the Genius Bars -- is bathrooms for its customers.

Here are the answers I got:
I've known Apple public relations operatives to duck questions, decline to comment and go on background at the drop of a hat. But I've never known one to deliberately mislead me.
The company has not yet returned my requests for an explanation.
