quote: Tony,This is the stupidest thing you have ever said. It is so stupid that I now know with absolute certainty that nothing you say has the benefit of intelligence.Apple answers to its shareholders. The cash Apple holds? That belongs to the shareholders. If Apple actually tried to use that to survive by spending it down towards zero it would have only one result. Its share price would nose dive.Apple invulnerable? Are you so completely consumed by being a fanboi that you're THAT far gone? After ten years of losses, nobody would want Apple stock - you do not invest in something whose value is eroding. Go look at HP's and Nokia's stock for the past few years.That would prompt a shareholder revolt, the outing of the board, and a possible takeover (leveraging Apple's assets - assuming it hasn't spent them all!).
quote: Jeez - do you struggle with the concept of hypotheticals?
quote: Apple do give money back to the shareholders in the form of dividends, they may give more in the future.
quote: Jeez - why are you such a douche?
quote: And that didn't start until AFTER Jobs died as far as I am aware.
quote: differing points of view
quote: Why do people who don't much like Apple, mostly despise it's customers and who want to see Apple stumble or be beaten in the market cry crocodile tears over the poor apple shareholders denied their access to the cash mountain? Crass flatulent hypocrisy is why.
