Well, then Apple would have $150 billion in cash still with a 3% interest on that but earnings of about 20+ billion per quarter as it does now. So they'd still be filthy rich and getting richer, but just with some debt.

This guy is obsessed with making a profit for himself. He probably knows nothing about technology and only sees the $$$. It's none of his business what Apple does with its cash. Pushing up the share price to a temporary high (before it comes crashing down) is pretty dumb. I'd rather see Apple invest in its supply chain, as it is doing with the sapphire investments recently, or even just save its cash for the rainy day. But please ignore the technologically illiterate bullies.
