Apple is turning into a boring cheapstake and no one cares anymore about how it spends its pennies. It is run by a bunch of out of touch middle aged rich guys. What is more boring than that?
Who cares if they spend this minuscule amount. They should be embarrassed that this reflects a doubling of their prior efforts.

It had a chance to go after Square. But did not.
I don't know what the 2014 plans are, but fewer and fewer people care.
