"As the Company will effect repurchases under the April 2012 Authorization, as under the current authorizations, by way of redemption in accordance with its Articles of Association, the Company is not required to post such redemptions to the Company’s website."

that barron's article cited how you can follow the buyback program almost in real time because the company is domiciled in ireland while run out of cupertino and irish rules require prompt repurchase disclosure. they expect to bring their share count to 350m by the end of this year.
