So when he acquired them they were worth ~ $500
Pst. I'll let you in on a secret Wallstreet doesn't want you to know about: It's called a 7:1 stock split.
If he's smart, since Apple's revenues have been losing momentum. The last quarter's numbers were pretty disappointing, after adjusting for the extra week.
Compared to what exactly?
I know it's fun (and easy) to bash Trump, but he does pay taxes.
So you mean he lied?"
"Apple bullying a local council into letting them avoid taxes"
It's how it happened, a good description of the government of County Cork and is why the penalty is so huge. So kid, tell me the "spun" version. The EU hates Apple's freedoms?
Say, in you reality, are there Zeppelins in the sky?
Ah I forgot - the BBC and all the rest other than Breitbart are "fake news" now. Just ignore the chatter of the adults we don't matter.
Oooh, an "adult". Well, that still wouldn't prove you are not a moron, even adults can be. Your posting proves you are a moron. Your reply proves you are also delusional. By, you moron, wo believes this whole tax thing is about "Apple bullying a local council into letting them avoid taxes".

I would pick a slightly thicker phone with significantly more battery life over an excessively thin phone with poor battery life that is just for pure fashion.
Of course you would. And then you wouldn't use it much because it was too heavy to hold comfortably.
It's actually pretty easy. They just have to not glue the battery to the case....
Facepalm. That magic "glue" Apple uses is nothing but an adhesive tape, which can easily be removed - if you can't, you are unfit to make any repairs on a phone.
They tweak the ARM design. Lots of companies tweak their own designs.
Having a working 64 bit ARM chip 2 years before anybody else is "tweaking designs"?
Intel provide chipsets with larger memory
Sure. And the notebooks that use them have much lower battery running times.
Woz was the visionary, Jobs was the accountant
Errm, nope. Building a computer for yourself may mean you are a genius. But only realising that that computer can be sold to the public makes you a visionary.
