Well, they will need some of the money for their new workplace and some more cash for their lawyers.

i think they should use the money for some serious R&D.. yes a few choice acquisitions will be necessary, but apple could use those billions for some crazy new tech… either that or a seriously huge aquistion that gets a ton of marketing and is useful… like maybe buying a teleprovider if they are serious about tv or something… either R&D or go big (but they might also do dividends.. not too sure about that though)

A friend of mine has Apple shares and he heard they might really give some dividends.

if they are serious about TV's here are somethings to consider
late S.Jobs called Blu-ray a "bag of hurt" were they planing ultra high def tvs and current optical media just couldn't do the job..and no i'm not saying apple will introduce a optical media that's not how they roll,they are all about digital distribution
just saying..maybe i'm off by couple of million miles

What if Apple announces that they're buying Google tomorrow? Can you imagine the fandroid eruption that would happen lol.

I think it will probably be dividends. Maybe even an upcoming split. Unlike Steve Jobs, Tim Cook actually believes in giving back. Tim could actually make Apple respectable again. Ethical, at least.

First give back the freedom to consumers to control their device however they want.
Then we'll talk.

They have to give the full control of their device to make happy 10% of their customers? Because the other 90% doesn't give a crap and won't use it properly, what's the point?
Do you understand that the majority of cellphones users, including Android users, are average people, not geeks?
Who they have to make happy, you?
