  1. I think you struck a nerve with laura. Hey laura waaaaa. stop doubting apple. You need to reevaluate the way the technology market works now. This aint 1995 Apple dictates the how the tech market works now. I’d say not listening to her apple predictions is the best thing for her clients.

  2. Truth is, the stock is going to take a hit next week. No matter how good the news from Cupertino, AAPL loses 10-15% right after a quarterly report. But it will bounce back in a week or two, especially as we head into the holiday season and the analysts start reporting on the traffic levels at Apple stores.

    Here is the interesting part: Around $180 a share — just a few dollars away — Apple’s market cap exceeds both Intel and IBM. That is a watershed event. I predict some celebrations will be taking place at 1 Infinite Loop.

  3. GO APPLE,THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!!!We need also more acessories like the mini-server or disk to the Airport Extreme and a real higth-def Tv for the Apple tv or and Apple dvd player,just choose one rumor to become true.
