Apple share price hits $700 for the first time ever

0. phoneArena 17 Sep 2012, 16:40 posted on

Whether or not you like Apple products, it's hard to argue with the company's balance sheet. It is a ludicrously profitable company and that has pushed the stock price to levels unseen in Apple's history. The stock price passed $700 for the first time today, just over one week after Google hit that same milestone...

What's not new about it? CPU? Gpu? Camera? Screen? Ram? Battery? Ffc? You're right nm.

u r basing ur comment purely on what the software is and phones looks which is definitely subjective.

When did I say it wasn't new?
But those things that they upgraded were expected, and necessary to catch up with the competition but are nothing special, especially the screen size, and the design(pretty much the same as the older iphones).
That's why I said you would think it would drop by looking at it

Aapl actually took longer than I had thought it would, I figured it would have spiked much higher the day of the key note. It's climbing, but it's taking a long time.

Hadn't paid attention to Google but it's great to see them doing well also. They've come a long way, great job.

Well, no. Apple needed Bill Gates and Microsoft to bail them out, or there would probably be no Apple now.

Apple is a company that is not going anywhere any time soon... for the pleasure of many and displeasure of a few

I gotta agree with you on this one gallitoking; even if apple drops off from public view or interest, there will always be die hards that will always buy Macs. Just like in the 90's, Microsoft was rockin the OS and manufacturers left and right and little ol' Apple was in the corner making enough off of its die hards to survive.
So, in point, Apple is one of the companies that would always exist, mainly because other companies need them so they wont get sued by the government (ie: Microsoft's Anti-Monopoly case in which they paid Apple to stay up and be competitive)

Gallitoking, Im disappointed you're only getting a 16GB, that's not enough to prove your apple fandom.

"stupid sony fan… smh" ya sound familiar?

and a dictator mindset is displeasure of many, pleasure of a few… any basic study of history shows that

He was a CEO and business man. He made his employees and customers happy(of course there are exceptions, and mean apple employees only) . Far from a dictator. Don't confuse his business tactics with a ruler that cares little for human life and less for human rights.

word to the wise.....you dont have to make people suffer like hitler, mussalini etc.... to be a "dictator" it simply means you dictate and "determine" what peoples choices are by influence and power.........apple is doing both and steve jobs made sure it went that way........so gallitokings comment was very much so in sync with the way apple thinks....... make the world think they have the best device out and make them feel happy but at the same time......make them pay outrageous amounts for it....make the operating sytem limited and restricted......tell them what browser they should use and other things like that........thats dictating wheter you like or not........steve jobs said him self "you never let people decide what they want when deciding on a phone" meaning he felt like he knew what you want and it doesnt matter what you think you want personally because you are going to buy what i give you any way...........DICTATOR

one fundemental problem with your argument: NOBODY IS FORCING PEOPLE TO BUY AN IPHONE

this is not fascist italy, nazi germany, or communist soviet union.. there are other options… and as android fans so like to say, they are arguably better options

People get an iphone because they LIKE it… people were forced to like nazism and fascism because there was no other choice… nobody likes communism though-- there are a range of smartphones to choice from, as opposed to governments to choose from

The reason why Gates bailed out Apple is because the US Government slapped a monopoly charge and found them guilty of Monopolizing the industry and forced Microsoft to allow the competition to have an advantage. And yes, you are right, if all this would not have happened, there would be no Apple.

controlling the media would be the same bro becuase if its all you see all the time then the choices will be little to none as people are not as smart as they think they are, people make choices off of their feelings and what "appeals" to the eye most of the time and thats why apples iphone is.... more "beautiful" than it is in depth in the operating system.......the whole idea of the "I" phone and its ecosystem is to be in union with each other and pretty much leave people no choice no matter how much better the other options are........once you are hooked into the apple ecosystem you wouldnt be able to leave if you wanted too because of all the money and time you done invested into it.......and hey why would you want to? beacause everyone else has it so it must be right......right? wrong apple is making decisions for you and making money off you.........and doing so with money.....influence (media) .......and i some cases bullying (court room)

so your telling me that the 60% of people who own an android phone dont matter?

i am not sure whether you are mentally unstable or fall for apple advertising yourself…

there are other options and nobody is forcing people to buy an iphone. but they do because they like/want it. period.

i understand its deeper than you may perceive so ill try to not preach to you but apple is indeed striving to be a strong dictator of this world......it is no coincidence that they are growing larger and larger each and every year........they are striving for "legal" control over you and everyone else on this planet......but will they succeed? i think one can only remain at the top for so long until being brought low.........just ask julius ceasar.........peace lucas nice chattin with you
