That’s the key for me, at least, a long-term understanding of Apple’s past, present, and future. (Here’s to his projected $250 target!)

  4. Ben Reitzes who was formerly at UBS, is now at Lehman Brothers, and he is a good one to watch. He rarely candy coats his stuff. In the interest of disclosure, we went to school together ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />
