AAPL quote via NASDAQ here.


  1. Telephone on Michael Dell’s desk rings. We listen in…

    “Oh hello Steve, I thought you were on indefinite leave.”

    “No, no, I’m not planning on closing Dell Computer.”

    “How’s that again? Close it down and return the money to the shareholders?”

    “Steve you cannot be serious? Apple is worth 13 times Dell? Does that mean I can shut it down 13 times?”

    Line goes dead…

  2. Apple is orchestrating a yearly cycle that does not let up.

    New iPad in the Spring
    New iPhone (and WWDC) in the Summer
    New iPods (plus iTunes and Apple TV) in the Fall
    New Macs as needed to fill the “gaps”
    Phenomenal results during the Holidays
    Other “surprises” along the way

    That’s one reason AAPL keeps going up. Apple stays in the media spotlight.
