It's a lazy stereotype which most Brits would be equally as ignorant of.
 Blame Michael Scott and Steve Jobs for taking Apple public back in 1981.  They got into the game.
There are five Apple stores in London I think: Regent Street, Covent Garden, Brent Cross, Westfield Shepherd's Bush and Westfield Stratford.   A handful of loudly disgruntled people on an Apple forum don't properly represent the attitudes of a country of 60 million people.  There are trolls of all nationalities here.
 Only if earnings exceed expectations.  Future earnings expectations are accounted for in the share price.
 As expected. Bit early to be judging that, don't you think?  Investors gain a higher proportional ownership, which is a good thing if you are optimistic about Apple's future.
In a perfect world the market cap is all of the company's assets, minus depreciation, plus cash and minus debt, and the total of all their expected earnings for the lifetime of the company. It's very literally meant to be what the company is worth. Obviously the last bit is a tall order to guess for almost any company, which is where the much-maligned analysts come into play.If Apple were to liquidate everything then they'd fall way short of their market cap; so much of...
I had that issue with my 5.  If I rubbed the back plate for a few seconds I could often create enough heat that it'd turn on again.  Weird and annoying problem.
 You're right that after a buyback each share is worth a greater percentage of the company, but the value of the company has gone down by the amount of cash they've expended (or the debt they've taken on) to buy back shares.  Owning a bigger slice of a smaller pie.  And the maths work out that the size of the new slice is exactly the same as the old slice.  Of course it is, because you can't create value from nothing. This is why buybacks are generally only worth doing if...
My point was that while you can congratulate Apple on a stance of not passing personal information to advertisers, if the net result is that advertisers don't use iAd and use someother ad network that does pass information on, well that's rather a pyhrric victory for iAd. Obviously iAd succeeding or failing doesn't mean much to Apple's bottom line.  But why offer a service at all if it doesn't make money and no one is getting anything out of it?  It's just a distraction....
Make perfect sense from here.  Bit of a mouthful, but they make sense.
