MacDailyNews Take: Clearly.


  1. Amazon and Apple are two different business models, like orange and apple. Amazon is e-commerce stretching thin with

      At least I have my Apple stock (since 2000) but only wish I had invested more. Still, going from a low 4 figure investment to near mid-6 figures today ain’t too shabby!
