By your (and I agree) definition, the path to Apple's dominance was buying Soundjam in 1999. Who da thunk it?

That is strange.
Did you ask them why/what happened?

It's pretty much always for ad-homs. Infractions should be listed in your profile page. Yours are mostly variations of calling people clowns, fools, idiots etc. You don't need to have these explained every time you do it, you know those comments are against the forum rules and they are removed from the forum. If you never insult another member of the forum, you will most likely never get an infraction, it's that simple. They are completely unnecessary additions to comments, you can make exactly the same point without adding the insults. If you use insults a lot then the forum starts issuing temporary bans each time you do it. A few bans usually gets people to stop doing it.

No way. Like Cook said the sales in China has not been hurt one bit.
I can't emphasize it enough: The stock market in China is not like the stock market in the USA. The majority of the middle/upper middle class don't even own China stocks. It is viewed as a rich man's casino. Just remember that the China stock market is 1/3 the size of the Japanese stock market. That alone should tell you how small it is and has almost no bearing on the economy. The only people 'losing' money in the China market are degenerate gamblers and very wealthy Chinese. And even these may have not lost money at all. The China stock market is still up 43% the last 12 months.

You can bet that AAPL itself has a sophisticated formula for buying it's own stock. Betcha it kicked in in spades this morning.

There was a time when Apple was all about neat technology... Now it's all about share prices. What a way of sucking the creative air out of anything.

Would the $95 have gone through? No way to tell now, but my brokerage has been OK with my trades before.
I think Mel is "buy and hold" guy from way back also. He just happened to "buy" more and good on him for doing so.
MR allows a massive amount of personal attacks/button pushing from some people, but not from others. Not sure why.
Though, it is slightly better now than a year ago were constant massive trolling was getting out of hand ("Bending" and watch "Thread").
Also, anyone using "fanboy", Isheep (or all such variants) non ironically or talking about Jobs's thinking this/saying this as a preambule to their argument should be banned for a few days instantly on an Apple site (On MR, which justifies their not policing trollers because it's about rumors and not an Apple site, you can push buttons all day long and moderation is pretty lax on this).
