After 3rd quarter reports an increase of 15% profit, Apple jumped it's already high stock price by another $5.85 today. Apple is kicking ass across the world.


From wire reports
"Apple Inc., the closest thing the tech industry has to a luxury brand, said Tuesday its profit jumped 15 percent in the most recent quarter despite the recession. Sales of Mac computers grew while the rest of the personal-computer industry shrank.

The company, which recently welcomed CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs back from a six-month medical leave, said earnings in the quarter that ended June 27 rose to $1.23 billion, or $1.35 per share. Apple's profit was $1.07 billion, or $1.19 per share, in the same period last year.

Apple said it sold more than 5.2 million iPhones in the quarter, more than seven times what it sold in the 2008 quarter and 4 percent more Mac computers than a year ago. But iPod sales fell 7 percent."

At least one American company is doing well, hope that dipshit Osama doesn't notice, he'll figure out a way to destroy them.

Is Apple a union shop?

Judging by the high the quality of their products, I doubt it. I'm sure their products are assembled overseas, Americans don't want to pay the higher cost of American, especially American union worker built products. Our country isn't what it used to be, there isn't the pride in the work done, the quality, the need to be the best, that existed in my father's generation.

I work part time for a major airline. I work as outage relief sometimes and was in the bag room 2 days last week. One pier I was on, I was lucky enough to be partnered with a black guy that slept the entire shift, I did his job and mine. The next day, I was partnered with one of those "hardworking hispanics" , he fooled around with his cell phone the entire shift, texting and talking, I did his job and mine. These 2 guys would be the first in line to bitch about how little they make and how they need a union. This stuff happens everyday, I am a part of a very small minority of white people at that job, I see stuff most don't see(I am amazed that every bag doesn't get lost), I see the real American work ethic, it's horrible.

In addition for beginners. If you want to make some quick money to add to your portfolio buy Standard Register (SR). It's a penny stock, currently at 3.50 as of 2:58 pm EST. One hour to go so act fast. Encouraging activity today is causing a flux of buying late in the day. I predict SR to realize a doller gain in the next week or so.

I wish Apple computers were less expensive. I like their machines, but it's tough to afford one.

Can't disagree with the initial outlay, however I bought a G5 about 5 or 6 years ago, not one problem. With that said, cheaper than if I'd bought 2 PC's and no hassles of going to a store. My MacBook is 4 years old, not one problem so far, though I may need to buy a new cord, which is really not a problem of the cord, but the electrical outlets at school.

I'm looking into finding a way to make a Mac affordable to me. I do graphic design work, and a Mac is great for that. A friend of mine has one and a huge monitor, something like 26-30 inches, and does great things with Lightroom and Photoshop.

For now I'm getting by with PC even though I don't like Bill Gates. I would never have sex with Bill Gates even if I use some of his software.

At least one American company is doing well, hope that dipshit Osama doesn't notice, he'll figure out a way to destroy them.That would be by nationalizing the company in question...It's 100% effective! :salute:
