iPhone iPhone 3G iPhone 3GS iPhone 4 iPhone 4S iPhone ? If you see a pattern there that clearly and unequivocally shows that the next in the sequence is iPhone 6, that is great for you. But as long as people have been squawking about it, no one has convinced me that 6 is the only suffix possible for the next iPhone. Apple has absolutely shown that they will use numbers that don't correspond with the actual version number of the phone. This is not to say that the next...
I admit, I use FB all the time. But I can't imagine it being worth a quarter as much as Apple! ...Of course, I thought Google was overvalued after its IPO, so I suppose I should just shut it...
Interesting. I would have thought that having the "free" 3GS would help their numbers some...
Sure. Sounds good. Except, Apple is already doing that. And they still added $35 billion to their pile... I don't think some reasonable stock buy back (if share prices ever fall again) or dividend disbursement precludes them from also following your advice... Besides, whether you think it is fair or not, Apple's cash pile will become a political football if it grows like this for another year or two...
Not too bad...
The key words in your comment are "when you earned it." Estate taxes are not taxing the person who "earned" the money at all. Growing up in a well to do household gives one many advantages, at some point, people should have to earn some of their own money instead of ghoulishly living off the bones of their parents or grandparents...BTW, there is an exemption for spouses...
I know! I'm paying AT&T $5 extra a month to keep unlimited data on the assumption that I may need it in the future--knowing full well that when I need it, they will surely take it away...
I have to agree--this longevity concept is not new to Apple, though it may be new to mobile handsets... My PowerBook 160 was upgrading to the latest OS for 6-7 years and worked fine for years after. I may not have spent as much on Apple products but it helped me sell 5-10 Macs to others even in Apple's dark days...
Wait! Apple is working on a new iPad? Why didn't anyone tell us!!
I just now realized that by buying an Apple ][c I helped Sculley fire (sort-of) Jobs. I had been saving for and dreaming of owning an Apple for so long, I didn't even consider a Mac. Besides Macs had that silly "mouse" and hid the power of the computer behind a constraining "graphical user interface". I had the same limited view of a fast moving technological field at 16 as that talented sugar water salesman...
