    Apple numbers in comparison?

    • Iwasholdingitwrong

      1) Apple does not give dividends.
      2) Why not look it up your own lazy self.
      3) Being this site is called Microsoft-news, why should they post Apple news? If you want news about Apple, go to one of the many Apple loving sites.

        It is
        amazing how iFan lovers have the need to get into other sites to sell their
        iCrap, isn´t it? I guess it is insecurity, I also don’t see it happening as
        much with people that like other brands either. Must be iCoolaid! The thing to
        me is, if i like ‘a’ product, or it suits my needs, I will defend it, who cares
        what brand it is. But if the same Brand brings crap, I could not care less.
        Funny thing about iLovers is that even if they lose money with Appleton
        products, they still will die before speaking crap out of it! I mean, it’s
        funny how USA could lose thousands and thousands of employments from their own
        companies, but still they would defend ‘a’ Brand a not a product that made them
        be happy, productive and even save them money.

I am not a fanboi of cRAPPLE by any means , but without the influx of cash that Bill Gates pumped into Apple in 1999-2001 , Apple would dead today , most cRapple fans dont even know the story!
