Apple to hold press conference in the morning to address cash reserves
With the unadulterated success from Apple’s iPhone and iPad over the last few years, many have wondered, “What are they going to do with that cash pile?” Apparently all your questions will be answered tomorrow morning.

Apple has issued a press release for a conference call that will occur on Monday, March 19, 2012 at 6 a.m. pacific / 9 a.m. eastern. Tim Cook, CEO, and Peter Oppenheimer, CFO, will be hosting the call to “announce the outcome of the Company’s discussions concerning its cash balance.”

You can call in to the event or listen online. Checkout the press release below for call numbers and web addresses. The webcast will be available for replay for two weeks afterwards.

It is only about 12 hours until we find out officially, but in the mean time, what to you think Apple should do with its cash?

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.

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?
