    Doesn't MS own a lot of the stock? If so, then this is kinda laughable :p

    A market value of $545.97 billion, it's worth more than Microsoft and Google combined.

  5. Making innovative class leading products with support that (while not flawless) is the best in the industry and rewarding investors and employees at a class leading level now as well.

    Good on you Apple.

    IANAL, but if MS had kept a significant amount of Apple stock, I'd expect to have seen antitrust action against both of them by now. It'd be an inherent conflict of interest, wouldn't it?
  8. Still not even 1/3 what Samsung has. Gives you an idea of how massive Sammy is!

    They didn't even own 10% of Apple, it was a very small amount. They had little say in Apple's business ventures. Yet still Apples stock prices were near worthless back then compared to what it is now. That 150 million would've ballooned.

    Apple show they don't give a **** about anyone, what about doing some good in the world.
  11. More like "Selling hardware at a massive markup and screwing software developers and getting away with it because its shiny"

    Good on you common public for getting sucked in by advertising.
