Baby Boomer, business owner, investor in Apple since 2004. Like to buy leaps and have sold puts successfully, sometimes buy call spreads. Currently have positions in around 40 different stocks, but Apple is over 20% of my portfolio and I follow it intensely.
Retired for 7 years, AAPL Long for 15+ years. All trust and IRA accounts for my wife and myself are 100% invested in AAPL and have been for the past 10-12 years.
Thanks to Apple restarting the dividend program in August of 2012, our current yearly AAPL dividends > 2X(my pension+wife's pension+my Social Security). In the 3+ years that Apple has been paying dividends, that's amounted to a total of $1,320,696.82.
The only AAPL shares we sell are to meet RMD requirements of my IRAs or for travel, etc.

I am a sixty-year-old Techie. I am long AAPL and RIMM on the Tech side. I own products from neither company. The majority of my investments are aggressive type with some growth and most income-focused. I am a former Edward Jones employee of some 5 years plus. Invested for the long term.
I have been investing in equities for 30 years. I take a fundamental approach and look for growth companies that sell at a significant discount to their intrinsic value and that are largely misunderstood by the market. I run a company that sells equity research to institutional investors.
