I hope this Update fixes other issues too!
With Apple no longer charging for the OS Upgrades, and giving away its own "Office Apps" (a dig to MSFT), I wonder if those moves could be characterized as a form of Buyback, which can be viewed as a way of re-investing in itself… Yes, one can get poetic with all that Wall St. terminology...   Recently I saw Buffet and ex GE CEO, Jack Welch, asked about Carl Icahn ideas on AAPL. Those guys expressed Confidence in Apple by saying something like - Apple knows what it's...
I just looked at:    https://www.icloud.com/#notes    OK, this New iOS 7 iCloud Notes LOOKS nice and pretty in my Safari, but unlike in the past,  TOTAL NUMBER OF NOTES COUNT IS NOW HIDDEN ONLINE!!!     Scrolling Down in the iCloud or on Mac Notes List doesn't reveal the Total Notes Count either, as is the case with Total Number of Contacts in iCloud, iOS, or on Mac, which is NOT User-Friendly either!   That is HORRIBLE!!!!     Thus far, on my iPhone + iPad,...
From the video preview of this interview, it was not clear if Ellison definitely predicted Doom for Apple without Steve! Ellison body language etc left enough of a doubt to suggest that Apple will fail without Steve, but it was not a definitive statement!    I see such Interviews as a Coy, Cheap PR Stunt to draw attention, to make oneself more important, and, in that sense, Ellison succeeded!    Also, there is Apples and Oranges element to his statement …  And...

  we all have our opinions… You seem to know what's good for Apple, as did Einhorn. Last I heard, as of July 31, 2013, he is not selling AAPL    David Einhorn Maintains Stake In Apple Inc. (AAPL) Despite Big Losses http://j.mp/17m866D    Yes, Apple execs are set for life as far as $$…    I have faith in Apple's Leadership! I assume that they hear and explore all kinds of ideas, and then make their decisions! Even if I knew everything they know, I don't feel qualified to...
This reminded me that Quicken by Intuit is "no into" Macs! I've seen countless comments by unhappy Mac users who wanted to see Equal Treatment from Intuit, as far as Quicken. Then I recall Intuit apologizing to Mac Community and promising such Equality with a Re-Write (maybe even) of Quicken. Then that topic faded away!    I am surprised that Mac/Tech Media didn't hold Campbell's/Apple's feet to the fire regarding Quicken's abandonment of Mac Platform.    It'd be great if...
Cook & Oppenheimer sold ALL their AAPL stock? I'd like to see some Links in support of your statement… Prove it!   It kind of sounds "funny" that those guys, who lead, and speak for Apple, during Apple's Earnings Calls, would sell ALL their AAPL stock, according to your post, and yet, Apple, which they lead, Bought $16B of its own AAPL stock recently!    Apple Stock Buyback, Q3 2013: Apple spends $16 billion in Q3 | BGRhttp://j.mp/14jwIlx  Again, anyone can only guess why...
Whenever Apple execs sell AAPL, it easy to assume that they are "jumping ship", because they don't believe in the future of Apple. But, at the same time, Apple is buying its own AAPL stock!    Apple Stock Buyback, Q3 2013: Apple spends $16 billion in Q3 | BGR http://j.mp/14jwIlx    Obviously, Apple is confident in its own future! And 19M is a lot less than $16 BILLION!!!    The execs who sold AAPL probably needed to show a loss, or pay some bills, or buy something else...
My concern is that people who don't have Apple's best interest in mind will interpret this as the top executives not having enough faith in Apple's future and will use it as an excuse to speculate, and drive AAPL stock price down further! They would be saying something like, if they know that AAPL price is going up why would they want to sell it right now, when it already took a hit lately. Why wouldn't they wait to sell it later at a higher price? There must be a good...
