If you're referring to me, you're making an unwarranted assumption. I was asking the original poster and anyone else who wanted to speculate why or how in particular Apple's cash reserve would be helpful in e-commerce.I've never used a phrase like "Apple's sitting on their cash hoard" because I know very well that it represents an enormous head of actual and intellectual capital that is going to allow them to think big, very big, now and in the future.For comparison, I...

I'll look through her posts starting about six months ago. Not all at once, but a little at a time. Maybe some search terms will come back to me. I think you will enjoy the story too.
