  • Apple's Q1 Blowout [View article]
    I much enjoyed this comment, constantnormal. I would say that an Apple laptop could be included in a basket of goods that a somewhat ordinary U.S. person might want to include for coping with contemporary situations. With beans, corn, squash, a wireless-equipped laptop, and a few feet to crash in, your laid-off couch-surfer with sufficient urban friends can probably survive for quite a while. I find this happening in the place where I live. Young, carless, militant vegans are camping out in what urban planners call high-density. If you've ever practiced martial arts in close quarters, you will have observed the changes in heat and humidity this close-living engenders. Fewer btu's are required to heat such places. The ubiquity of Apple laptops in wire-less enabled coffee shops bodes well for the medium distance on Apple. I don't know about 70 as the buy-in point, but if Apple sends tentacles out toward renewable-energy initiatives, I would really want to get in. I'm still just watching the stock for now.
