Fairtax.org Nobody pays taxes until they purchase something at retail. No businesses pay taxes either. Nobody below the poverty line pays any taxes. The actual rates go down for most people with this plan. The only people who pay 3% more with the transition are people between 56 and 65 years old. They lose out on the transition period for a few years. This plan lets people save more money faster due to income not being taxed. This plan entices foreign companies to bring...
Cost effective is a relative term. Any company that wants to maintain a great reputation for innovation must factor in the need to update its products often. If it doesn't then its reputation diminishes. Apple's reputation has been diminishing in the eyes of long time Apple computer users. I've read it here and on other Apple forums. The reason they stick around for so long is because of Windows. Who really wants to go back to Windows? Nobody. So those who don't want to...
If Apple never made a revolutionary product again I would be OK with it. What I'm annoyed at about Apple is that they don't even lead the pack with processors and new things all of the time. Yet they always charge premium prices. They do come up with new standards every once in a while but they leave older processors in their machines far too long. They should be updating their processors immediately as they become available. Instead they leave their machines with the...
Does this mean that Apple is buying the bonds with its offshore money? If it is, doesn't that mean it must repay the money to the offshore entity? If that entity is located offshore Apple is still sending the money to repay the loan offshore. What am I missing about this deal?
Someone please explain to me how offering bonds that must be repaid to the buyers will get the $100 billion in value that is parked overseas back to the USA without being taxed.
What is it that requires a Mac Pro other than movie editing? I see that Dell and HP sell monster machines with Xenon processors. There are movie editing programs that work on Windows and Linux. Just this month Red Shark released its Lightworks movie editing program for Linux. It is a program that seems to be on par with anything from Avid or Adobe.  It's even set up to create 3D movies, AND IT'S FREE! Can't real scientific work be accomplished by racks of servers...
Until the stock market returns to evaluating stocks purely on their dividends it will continue to be a casino. Wouldn't it be more fun to just go to a casino on the days you're feeling lucky?
US production would be a way to prevent such big mistakes. Even just US assembly would be better than nothing.   When is the US assembly plant for the unnamed icomputer going to be ready?
So how are all of you feeling about those more reliable prognosticators who kept saying Apple would reach $1000 per share?   Pump and dump is an old strategy. It is a demonstration of how greed and evil work in our freeish society. There should be a better measurement of how the world is doing than to listen to reports about how well the stock market is doing. I stopped believing anything the US government says about the economy or wars. It seems that the same type of...
