The cash from 9billion to 13billion has indicate that Apple lack of r&d spending... No wonder the stock price tumble even if you pay extra dividend :)

I study at the business section and I must say, stock buyback is the worst decision in order to increase price... A lot of history prove that... Rather pay as dividend instead of buyback, trust me :p

R&D? Really? Buyback if they aren't doing at current levels it means it will slide further when algebra maths and geometry fails ... all too desperate to reverse the trend of share prices being hosed :)

Apple is just kidding :)
Apple should give more from his stolen loot from eBooks price fixing and IT price fixing in Australia...

I wonder where those R&D spending went.. The 5th row of icons? Or the forthcoming 6th row and 5th column?

Patents based on sketches and drawings. That's big R&D expense and that's why they weren't left with any money for even prototype.

So what's the deal PA? No mention of the shareholder(s) suing over this deal, and Tim Cook calling it silly? I've read it tons of places but no mention of it here.
Basically there is some vote going down today and this is a part of it, which the suit wants to separate out. Everyone says that Apple is only accountable to their investors, but in this case it sounds like they're trying to force their hand.
