It's not our problem that you have no "imagination".    
"The more things change, the more they remain the same" (an aphorism by Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr) ......    "There's a sucker born every minute." (usually attributed to P. T. Barnum)   First there were banking institutions and investment houses that, when trying to figure out how to get rid of those 'nasty stocks' that kept on losing money and were getting increasingly harder to dump, er, sell, that they came up with the bright idea of taking several hundred of...
" because ownership will be concentrated in fewer hands, thus there will be less ability to manipulate the stock price." People who think like this are the reason the masses, for the most part, get "fleeced." Who do you think is moving the market theses days? Millions of little people who all think alike on every decision? or the 40 or 50 hedge fund, pension fund, mutual fund and every other fund you can think of, plus all of the "traders" that make a commission on every...
The "drug" is called power. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The scary thing is how easily the masses can be duped. I'm not sure where we're heading but I think it's going to get real ugly sooner, rather than later.

End of story.

Thanks for the info. This makes sense to me.
Sound advice, but I noticed that you took 145 words just to say you don't like Dilger's writing style. Hmmm, throwing stones, glass houses is running thu' my head,  btw, what in hell is a matyr?    
I'm not sure that the examples you've given are comparable at all to what Apple experiences. I just cannot imagine that 100s of millions of people, world wide, would suddenly feel the urge to log on Amazon to buy something at the same time, and stay logged on for a long period of time. Apple's problem is, imho, one of continued growth. As soon as they get caught up to a certain level, the numbers increase wildly. If I'm not mistaken, Apple has been adding cloud services...
You should change your "name". It's misleading because I don't even think you've got one.
