    I am happy this happened. I have some apple stock at the moment and it is doing really good. I am glad I have bought it. For the last two years, apple's stock has been steadily increasing. Hopefully it won't all of the sudden fall!

    I have thought about doing the same, but I'm nervous about their image. All it takes is one bad PR mess like Sony.

    I have to admit that I was surprised by that, I would have thought that companies such as General Electric would be bigger than Apple. Well done to them and their fantastic innovation in recent years. One thing that could cause an upset in Apple share prices is a deterioration in the health of Steve Jobs.

    I would agree, but probably not to the extent that some think it will. For the most part, I think most markets expect something to change in the near future at the top of Apple.
