 I am well aware of the theoretical basis for buybacks. 50% was my guess at the buybacks that are unadvisable in retrospect, because they boost share prices less than cash value -- sometimes not at all. About PE, I would expect Dell's PE is much higher than Apple, because their prospect for earnings _growth percentage_ is much higher than Apple. If they fix things, earnings could go 10x higher. Not possible with Apple.
Historically, buybacks haven't been very successful. Apple is a relatively high priced stock. Would you devote all your money to AAPL at $510? The cash Apple holds today offers the company staying power and flexibility. They should invest better than 0% interest to be sure. But buying purely its own stock makes returns more volatile for shareholders. There is also a better than 50% chance it simply destroys good cash with nothing to show for it. Because Apple...
I came here just to see how AppleInsider would somehow skew this as positive news. You do realize... today's Apple fans are the same as Microsoft fans were a decade ago? Some people like what's new. Others are stuck go to what's big today. APple is big today. I am tying this on an Apple machine. But seriously, Apple is just another company now.
There are only 2 options: (1) Good guy finds vulnerability (2) Bad guy finds vulnerability Those who attack guy #1 are ensuring that guy #2 will win the day + get your info, and victimize you.
Amazeballs.  To the Samsung sycophant site!!
  Apple was trying to act on trademark of the word "Store."  They were a thousand years late.  App, also not an Apple trademark.  And there you have it.   Can Apple afford to do stupid things, sure, not worried about their finances just yet.
Called it on day one.  This was a waste of time for all concerned.
If you could let me reset the password for the coffee shop every few days when they change it, without going deep into Network Preferences into interface hell, then yeah.  That'd be great.   Just one of the ways OS X's wifi treatment is generally the world's hardest to use & least reliable.   iOS, meanwhile, is among the best.
Should they be asking poor people how to direct the company's strategy?
I'm thinking they could engineer a superior cable -- safer and better than the Apple product for 1/10 the price.  And still make a profit margin over 100%.   I have some counterfeit iDevice cables.  You can tell they are fake because -- literally, no troll -- their quality is superior to the Apple cables that DID fray btw.  As for 'safety' of the Apple cables?  Shit, that is why I ordered more cables -- it wasn't because the Apple product was intact.  It was...
