Apple will probably be around in 30 years, but it's an open question whether it is the next IBM or the next Zenith. There is absolutely no way to be sure. It is luck. The people in charge of Apple are human beings. None of them are Apple founders. Steve died. Apple's brass are business leaders exactly like every other business leader. They will emulate Steve's philosophy exactly like every other trendy company will attempt to do. Many of which are younger and...
Boy, I guess some poor people have the self importance to ask for a thank-you in addition to new developments in their town. They would prefer to have no development in their area I guess (many of my friends agree with this). Especially the friends who do not contribute to the economy in any way. They believe life without corporations would be heaven on Earth. Truth is, it would involve a lot of farming... subsistence farming. This way of life is still available in...
If they have the energy to complain, I am surprised these workers are so well fed and seem to have educated thoughts. This appears to be progress.

If Apple made a commitment to pay out ALL its cash in dividends, the loss would be a mere $40 billion in personal income taxes on the investor side. The governmetn would be so happy. Oh, wait. That would be REALLY stupid.
Am I drunk? What does Mandarin have to do with Hong Kong specifically? You do realize more Hong Kongese speak English than probably speak Mandarin? Asia is a big place. They don't all speak Mandarin...
I see more exciting potential at JC Penney than at Apple, as 2012 beckons, to be really honest about it. JC Penney has huge potential to benefit from improved concept and execution. Apple, nowhere to go but down basically. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Remarkable. What will these devices unthink?
Unions are anathema to everything Apple stands for. If people want an incredibly powerless company (that can't hire/fire based on merit, that can't control its expenses) that would not be Apple -- it would be a far less successful company. Predictably, unionists (and trial lawyers) approach successful businesses with hands outstretched precisely because they have destroyed their earlier hosts, and need to feed on new hosts in order to continue living.
