Apple triggered a silver shortage???

in General Discussion edited January 2014


I was listening to some talk radio and heard an ad for gold/silver... nothing strange there but there is a twist. The salesman claimed that Apple has delayed the production of all Macs because of silver shortages!  I personally found this so funny that I wanted to share it after I stopped laughing and regained my composure...


 


Note, I do keep an eye on metals, as I also watch the markets as a lite hobby, and silver has been holding between 28-32 for a while and is lower than that today! no big demand more than normal LOL

    Even if there was a shortage:

    the amounts they use in computers are miniscule. It sounds like the salesman might have thought the whole machine was made out of silver.
