How long will it take before you forgive Go Daddy for supporting SOPA, and why does Apple get a pass for the same thing?

I don't use Go Daddy, but a friend of mine has about a dozen domains that he plans to transfer away from Go Daddy by the end of the month due to their support of SOPA. Since the issue of SOPA support came to light, and people freaked out on Go Daddy, they reversed themselves and are now opposed to SOPA. Batman, my overly convenient decision senses are tingling! Personally, I have no relationship with Go Daddy, but I will keep this in mind in the future and it will make me reluctant to do business with them. I wonder how much of an impact will this have on Go Daddy; will it be forgotten quickly or have long term consequences, and encourage other companies to think ahead about the type of laws they support? And why isn't there outrage against Apple and Microsoft for initially supporting SOPA?
