Sigh! It's not manipulation. How many times are you going to misunderstand the difference between manipulation and normal market movements?
Like most things, it isn't that easy. How would Apple do this? Leasing backbone from those very same companies?If they would truly be independent, they would need to lay their own fiber, as Verizon has been doing. But it's cost Verizon over $100 billion over the years, and they're not going to to lay any more once the designated areas are finished, though, that could always change in the future. Verizon owns many telephone poles, and underground access tunnels. Apple does...
Well, supposedly, it should be, but generally isn't. Though most DOW companies are staid, and uninteresting. This kind of mixes Apple into that group.
I don't think so. That would be over twice what it is now. And while I wouldn't mind it as a shareholder, a dividend is a promise. They need to continue it, at whatever rate they're paying or the market will pummel the stock, and question the company. But, every so often, a company can make a one time dispersement, as Microsoft was forced to do years ago by investors.The problem today, is that so many American companies make most of their sales overseas, and therefore,...
We can see by Apple stock price so far today at how excited everyone is at this.
The problem most people have, is that they're simply afraid. They want to invest, so they do, but not on their own decision making. Mutual funds, hedge funds, managed accounts, all of these make make people feel as though the professionals, who after all, must know what they're doing, will do a better job for them than they would do for themselves.And they're right! Most people would lose their investments if they made their own decisions. Another problem these people...
Not benefit of history. As many people here know, because it comes up almost every time we talk financial, since 2004, that I bought a load of Apple then, and I've held it, and bought some more in 2008. So I'm talking from experience, not from hindsight.
I'm surprised they haven't already. I believe that Apple was one of those behind the new standard.
How long will that take though? This chip series is much weaker than the i5 Apple uses in the weakest Macbook Air. The chips the Macbook Pro uses are much more powerful.
There's no problem putting two different metals together. To some it may look off, but to others, it might look great.As far as hardness goes, anodized aluminum is MUCH harder than 316 stainless. It's harder than hardened steel. But the aluminum beneath is soft, so a hard blow will break through the anodized layer. That shouldn't be a problem with how this is used.
