Actually DennisW has finally had his prediction to come true. Apple stock is going to be below $200. . . but not for the reason he was predicting. When the stock splits it’ll be below $100 a share.

iTunes/Software/Services: $4.573 billion revenue

Wow, 4.5 billion revenue just from iTunes? At the turn of the century, I seem to remember Apple's net worth was less than that. And it wasn't that long ago.

I love my iPhone. I also like MS Excel. I build solutions with Excel and VBA that save companies hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Use the best of the best.

Steve Ballmer was one of those. What others have written: In 2007 Ballmer said “There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.” In a May 2012 column in Forbes magazine, Adam Hartung described Ballmer as “the worst CEO of a large publicly traded American company”, saying he had “steered Microsoft out of some of the fastest growing and most lucrative tech markets (mobile music, handsets and tablets)”. Some companies like Microsoft have a CEO that causes the company to flounder. Apple seems to be doing fine with or without Jobs.
