    Wall Street punters predict Apple could become the first trillion dollar company in an year or two. The company's share prices rose last week, to $633.38, edging past those of Google. Analyst Brian White, of Topeka Capital Markets claimed that the share price could enter four-figures in under an year, making the company worth US $1T. In his report, White stated "Apple fever is spreading like a wildfire around the world." By that, he meant that the craze for Apple products and services, is spreading.

    Back in the real world Apple stock's are still only really worth $40 :rolleyes:

    I think Apple & Nvidia should hook up and make a corporate baby monster and crush all other corporation's :cool:

    That's still not enough money, I believe. Considering the heresy that is still rampant in this world, as well as the several who choose to ignore the Holy Light emanating from the Holy Apple. They still deny the enlightenment offered by the Blessed Company.

    Well I'm sure these Wall Street fuckers are spewing this nonsense as a means of getting uninformed people to purchase Apple stocks for the sole purpose of riding the waves of the stock market to pocket more of America's middle class's hard-earned money.

    Meanwhile Google, Intel, Asus, AMD, Samsung, LG, HTC, and Quallcomm will be coming out with better devices yet again, while investing in yet another green energy cause, which will be ignored by the iSheep worshiping their deity-corporation.
    iPanel? Sorry I would prefer a 5" larger AMOLED with Google TV.
    iPad? Transformer Prime please.
    iPhone? HTC One S please.
    iPod? Samsung Galaxy Player or some cheap generic mp3 player that works just as well for half the cost.
    Mac? I'll build my own PC any day.
    MacBook? I'll take a Llano or i5/i7, something from Asus, HP, Puget Systems, Toshiba, or Samsung instead.


    Other than that, I must give Apple kudos for their Marketing.
    Just... way overpriced and overhyped.
    And a glass phone which wouldn't last me a week if I got it. Lol

    So you would prefer to remain ignorant about the teachings of the Holy Apple? :confused:

    You are willing to deny the enlightenment from the Sacred Word? :twitch:

    apple has great high res screens, and very responsive touchscreens.


    other than that, my old galaxy S is a better phone than my iphone 4. the only reason apple are so finanically well off is their utter incompatibility with everything else - everything you buy thats compatible, earns apple royalties.

    Meh apple makes good products I will give them that. I do however prefer my custom built PC and my galaxy sii android phone with custom rom on it but thats because I like to mess and tinker with technology. If you just want something that works apple is the way to go.

    Blasphemy!!! :twitch:

    Of course it would be incompatible with everything else, since everything else are inferior products made by infidels.

    I just don't get it. Its marketing, design and thats it. For twice the price. Its like one of my bosses at work heard us talking about tech and starting talking about his ipad he just bought. He was like I had to have one. case cover and all the extras. All he does is watch movies on the can with it. really? Well ok I have to admire that part
