    Thanks Fred Anderson!

    The Short-Squeeze call made today is right on the
    mark. Karmi and Krew (shorts) are gonna get shafted
    tomorrow without question. Fred Anderson you are an
    absolute genius!

    .05� above consensus and $500
    million buyback, we should hit 60 with no problem
    tomorrow. The timing for earnigs announcements and the expo
    was exceptionally a brilliant strategy.

    Shorts
    go away - you all suck!

    Have a Nice Tomorrow
    Karmie & Krew,

    Praise to All AAPL Longs! AAPL to
    75 and beyond!

    • <<Shorts go away - you all
      suck!>>

      WK,

      Now, now. Personally, I love shorts. Especially
      loosing shorts. They short at say $45, and then cover at
      $55. They loose $10 a share, I gain $10 a
      share.

      Now how could you not love a short, esp an AAPL
      short?? Perhaps you APPL shorts could save some brokerage
      fees by just cutting me a check directly.

      • Yeah, it feels good to be right. No stopping AAPL
        now...

        For shorts 'going naked' or any demonstrating bad
        timing will teach them a lesson not soon forgotten. If
        you play the option game, you better know that you
        are right...otherwise...ZAP!

        Surprised Karmie
        actually was blatant enough to show face today...on the
        Eve of...he he he...

      • especially shorts running to cover. i loved the
        orcl shorts in th low 20s and i love 'professional
        short seller' who has been successfully shorting intv
        from 12 to >15 (go figure). i love shorts who short
        at the open when a stock gaps down on bad (or good)
        news so they hit the low of the day. a short might get
        a dip on aapl tomorrow, but if aapl is going down
        it might open on the low. long term it's up up up.
        i'd prefer to short an overpriced tulip with no
        earnings, but some shorts are so dumb thy have to try the
        hard way-playung a little fluctuation in a stock that
        is basically going up.

    • Why should you care if Apple is 4% worldwide
      marketshare?

      Choice is good. Macs are a great choice,
      and more people are wanting that
      choice.

      Nothing you say will convince me, the same conversely I
      believe...that being said though...

      Roughly 20 to 40% of
      SKU's sold are to converts or new users.

      Apple
      is NOT going away. They are a great company. Nothing
      you can say will affect this trend.

      Go support
      some PC company you believe in, rather than proving
      you are a PC biggot on an Apple board. Make
      constructive use of your time.

    • I will be looking to cover my July 50 naked calls at best price by friday. Way to much at risk, and i beleive i can stem losses as low as 58/sh???
      anybody else out there in this situation?

    • Why should you care if Apple is 4% worldwide
      marketshare?

      "Just stating the Facts"

      Choice is good. Macs
      are a great choice, and more people are wanting that
      choice.

      "Your right - Choice is good. However, Macs are NOT a
      great choice,
      hence the Marketshare".

      Nothing
      you say will convince me, the same conversely I
      believe...that being said
      though...

      "Typical"

      Roughly 20 to 40% of SKU's sold are to converts or new
      users.

      "Dream On"

      Apple is NOT going away. They are a
      great company. Nothing you can say will affect this
      trend.

      "A slow process of decay is seen by some as
      vindicitation of their beliefs, far be it from me to point out
      facts, believe what you will".

      Go support some PC
      company you believe in, rather than proving you are a PC
      biggot on an Apple board.
      Make constructive use of
      your time.

      "I have made constructive use of my
      time, and don't believe in "Blarnistones" or
      "shamrocks" or "Leprechauns". Its obvious you
      do - Good
      Luck!"

    • If you are here to criticise, at least get your
      argument in a little better order first.

      An
      example:
      >> Why should you care if Apple is 4% worldwide
      marketshare?

      "Just stating the Facts"<<

      Why
      didn't you answer the question?

      Another
      example;
      >>Choice is good. Macs are a great choice, and more people
      are wanting that choice.

      "Your right - Choice
      is good. However, Macs are NOT a great choice, hence
      the Marketshare".<<

      Using that kind of
      logic, a Lexus is not a good choice of auto, look at
      their marketshare. Poor logic.

      Next we
      have;
      >>Roughly 20 to 40% of SKU's sold are to converts or new
      users.

      "Dream On"<<
      Are you saying it isn't
      true? Go do some research.

      And yet
      again;
      >>Apple is NOT going away. They are a great company.
      Nothing you can say will affect this trend.

      "A
      slow process of decay is seen by some as vindicitation
      of their beliefs, far be it from me to point out
      facts, believe what you will".<<

      Let's see,
      sales are up, profits are up, stock price is up, looks
      like decay in your vocabulary is another word for
      progress. How do you account for that?

      Finally we
      have;
      >> "I have made constructive use of my
      time"<<

      Really? In what way?
      Lurker

    • and earns .69 cents a share. how can they do
      that? they also expect to earn .76 cents per share next
      quarter. it is absolutely amazing what faith can do. i
      think they are lying about the next quarter, they will
      probably do .80-.84 cents. this anderson fella you know
      the accountant, well, i think he has a problem in
      adding, his estimates are always low. steve should
      probably have a talk with him.

    • Hold on to your PC biggotry...I've lived with NT,
      Win 95 unreliable crap - Macs though costing more
      work very reliably for me

      The performance of
      Apple will be testament enough...and I will become
      rich.

    • Thanks for the assist.

      Posters like that merely wanna ruffle feathers and promote PC biggotry and FUD.

      I care! Facts are facts, enough said! ]

      logic.

      [ Poor Logic is right, what does Lexus have to do
      with computing? ]

      [
      Depends what YOU mean? Sales? No, your wrong. Profits,
      yes. Decay is
      decay is decay, interpret it ( as you
      will ). ]

      Finally we have;
      >> "I
      have made constructive use of my time"<<


      Really? In what way?

      [ In debunking people like
      you, for instance. ]
