I'd never sit in a Ford with Sync and the engine running.
Well, think of it this way... Apple can use the money for what is allowed, which would free up money for dividends that would otherwise be used for those things that are allowed.
I coulda sworn I saw an article posted on Google Finance that quoted some research done by some company I've never heard of, saying that buyer intent among teens was down.
