So what you're saying is you founded the company that we have to thank for these commercials?   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAXo3Wr_nYU
I may drink the same Apple Kool-Aide as you, my friend, but, unlike you, my eyes are wide open as I'm swallowing, being a relatively large shareholder.   I'm not saying Apple is doomed, I'm saying that I agree with Soli in that this is a pretty young age for a VP to retire from a company that is firing on all eight.....and by all signs, will probably be for quite a few years to come.

Don't get me started on the Medicaid, Social Security and low income debate because I believe hardly any capital gains tax is used for those programs.   Sorry for being off topic but fundamentally I have a problem with this viewpoint.

This keeps the consumer happy and maximizes profits for Apple. The former makes me happy and extremely satisfied as a user and...
That's a great business model. No margin?
I still find it difficult to believe Apple would completely drop the 17" MBP forever and not say a word about it.
