If he does die in the near term, I'll plant an apple tree in his honor.

Okay, so the graph makes it look worse than it is.
The stock, which had been sailing along near its all-time high of $360 a share, started to drop at about 1 p.m. Then, at 1:39, it collapsed, falling from $355 to $349 in the space of four minutes.
But I like sensationalism. Plus, it makes me look right!
UPDATE: Stock Tic Toc is attributing the flash crash to rumors that Steve Jobs is back in the hospital. Funny, he was reportedly sighted on the Apple campus last week with a big smile and a spring in his step. And just yesterday, two different people tweeted that he was eating lunch near them at an Indian restaurant in Mountain View.
rumors abound. I'm calling it. No way he's healthy: we know that. He's a goner. With him goes apple.

Is Jonathan Ive, Apple‘s senior vice president of industrial design, packing his bags and moving back to the UK? Worse, did Apple tell him if he moves back to England he can’t keep working for Apple? That’s what the Times of London is reporting.

According to the Times (behind a paywall) and the Daily Mail, Ive received an option grant in 2008 that’s now worth $30 million, and if he sold that stock, his combined net worth would be $128 million. The designer (called Jony Ive by his friends) has been “at loggerheads” with the Apple board about the amount of time he spends in the UK, where he would like for his two children to go to school, the report notes.

According to the Times, an anonymous pal of Ives was quoted as saying, “unfortunately he is just too valuable to Apple and they told him in no uncertain terms that if he headed back to England he would not be able to sustain his position with them.”

I fully expect, any day now, for apple to announce their latest breakthrough...

Strange stuff. Multinationals caring where an employee lives, in the era of telecommuting.

When I wrote that, I didn't realize that there are worse choices for 'running the show' than accountants.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who stopped working at the Cupertino company in 1987 but remains on the payroll, said during an interview with Reuters that he would consider returning to the firm [apple].

Reuters reports:

"I'd consider it, yeah," the 60-year-old computer engineer said in an interview, when asked whether he would play a more active role if asked.

"There's just an awful lot I know about Apple products and competing products that has some relevance, some meaning. They're my own feelings, though," Wozniak, who currently works at Fusion.io, told Reuters.

He added that he thinks Apple, as it stands today is "unbelievable," though it could potential be more open.

"My thinking is that Apple could be more open and not lose sales," Wozniak said, noting, "I'm sure they're making the right decisions for the right reasons for Apple."
I hear that you can't know Wozniak and not like him. I hear he's the happiest billionaire alive. I wonder if he ever found his car keys.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Hey Rob, Oracle of skepticalcommunity, AAPL on the Nasdaq is trading around $390 today. What happened to the colapse you were talking about? I, like millions of others sold my Apple shares on your recommend. :D

Don't fret too much. Like all other analysts, they forget about all of their misses, never talk about it again, like it never happened. Only put your good calls in the brochures for the retail investors. Most of them don't do proper research or DD anyway. :wink:

in all seriousness, it will be a slow regression, just as it was when they first booted him. had he not come back, AAPL would be an unknown acronym.

Reminds me of a Simpsons episode from 1996
Homer: Now, here are some of your no-name bands. Sonic Youth? Nine Inch
Nails? Hullabalooza?
Clerk: Hullabalooza is a music festival; the greatest music festival of
all time.
Homer: There can only be one truly great festival a lifetime and it's
the "Us Festival".
Clerk: The what festival?
Homer: The "Us Festival"! Geez! It was sponsored by the guy from Apple
Computers.
Clerk: What computers?

Maybe Apple will issue dividends or go private.

Their stock is only of value swing traders.

If you bought it at 40 and its 400 right now, if it drops to 40 tomorrow, you have accumulated nothing.

It's brilliant. Building hype for a product that doesn't exist--for free!
