    I believe that they are buying back shares to head off takeover attempts of KO or add value to eventual offer.

    Yeah, our Country is something else. We worry about how much soda people drink but, we don't want to protect our borders and the people living legally within them. It's all so backwards now.
    And we have all kinds of smut and garbage on TV and the internet but, I typed the #$%$ word for donkey and Yahoo "fixed" it. Good grief.

    Higher taxes....less earnings....layoff employees.
    He is so good for the middle cl#$%$ working man-isn't he?
    How many people still stand behind this #$%$?
    Oh yeah-the 50% who are not in the labor force at all and think their gravy train will never run dry.

    Since you own the company, I am curious how quickly and easily the company gets out the K1's. Have owned other LP's and it has been a tax nightmare. Thank you for your help.

    Barry's speach is leaked

    That is so funny and sad at the same time. Actually, truth is we fly them here. I live in AZ and the most ridiculous news story I heard recently (story that is almost never reported) is that Arizona spends MILLIONS of tax dollars to haul Mexicans who get "stuck" in the desert. This is done by helicopter of course). They call from cell phones (likely given to them by the Obama administration-he loves giving out free cell phones) and tell the local police-we are stuck. Funnier still is the fact when they played the 911 tapes, the caller spoke fluid English. That's funny because when they get here and take another job, they suddenly don't speak any English. So disgusted with this Country.
    To the Walter point: yes, we can thank this huge downturn to Barry's speech yesterday. Maybe when he visits his homeland he'll like it so much he will just stay there....

    Gee, I'm going to put my guess on the 50% who are unemployed/welfare/illegals you name it.....this is working for them. They don't give a damn about our Country or the children's futures, just getting free #$%$.

    Wow. Bold face lie! They obviously know something.

  • Um, voice think they might be fielding a lot of calls?

    They destroyed several companies that were high flyers with huge growth: GMCR/SODA. I put this into that category. When the turn around begins for WFM (today???)-they will begin piling in and driving it up again, like the above.

    Anyone ever been into a Teavana before? I had my first experience there last weekend at the mall. It went something like this:
    OMG it smells so good in here...try samples, the ratio of workers to shopper 6/1. They have samples of teas everywhere (hot and cold)....smells wonderful....ask for a sample and the workers seem put off almost (weird). OK, i got to the counter, I like two teas I've sampled....they pick up the large container-"you have one of these?"-no, how much is the tea?-oh no, you must have a container ($7.50) but, for the one tea, you must have the ($8.50) container, cuz the other one won't work....ok, again, how much is the tea? It's by the ounce and separate. OK-she begins to fill BOTH containers. Ring me up----that will be $148.00-and welcome to your new LIFESTYLE of tea.....Um, yeah-for that price it's a new lifestyle alright (or weekly grocery bill for family of 4). So seriously, I justify $150 on tea, when there are people around the world starving. Why don't you cut some staff and reduce the tea price. I figure this is a great move for SBUX, cuz the margins must be OUTRAGEOUS. Now they have to find enough people stupid enough to buy their overpriced tea.....

    MELBOURNE/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple's iPhone 5 uses chips from Qualcomm Inc, Avago Technologies Ltd and Skyworks Solutions Inc, according to repair firm iFixit, which pried one open.

    The latest iPhone, which first went on sale in Australia on Friday morning, has a larger, 4-inch screen and is slimmer and far lighter than previous models.

    Apple Inc booked over two million online pre-orders for the device in the first 24 hours, underpinning investors' expectations the new device will maintain the Cupertino, California company's meteoric growth.

    Other companies supplying parts for the new phone include DRAM and flash memory chipmaker SK Hynix and radio-frequency chipmaker Triquint Semiconductor Inc, according to iFixit, which stripped down one of the new devices in Melbourne.

    The device included an audio chip made by Cirrus Logic Inc. Speculation has swirled that Cirrus technology has replaced that of rival Audience Inc.

    It also had a gyroscope, used to track the phone's orientation, made by STMicroelectronics as well as controller chips from PMC-Sierra Inc and Broadcom Corp.

    News that a supplier has been chosen -- or rejected -- for one of Apple's products can sometimes cause drastic swings in stock prices.

    Earlier this month, shares in Audience plummeted 63 percent after it said Apple would no longer use its noise filtering technology. Shares in Cirrus spiked at the end of July after it predicted quarterly revenue would jump 70 percent.

    Apple doesn't disclose which companies make the components that go into its smartphones.

    iFixit co-founder Luke Soules spent the night lined up at a local store to buy one of the first iPhone 5s.

    Fueled by Red Bull energy drinks to keep himself going, Soules rushed the phone to a nearby Mac repair store fitted out with tools, lights and a camera to begin dissecting the iPhone, a process that can take hours.


    Chip executives who are often happy to boast to reporters about what smartphones their components have been chosen for turn silent at the mention of Apple - for fear of losing current business or missing future opportunities with the world's most prestigious consumer electronics device maker.

    Teardowns give investors a vital glimpse of which suppliers have been chosen for new Apple devices.

    The iPhone 5 supports faster 4G networks thanks to a chip supplied by Qualcomm. It also comes with a number of software updates, including Apple's new in-house maps feature.

    The latest iPhone includes a new A6 processor that Apple says runs twice as fast as the previous generation. Apple depends on Samsung Electronics to manufacture mobile processors on its behalf, a relationship strained by the two companies' bitter legal dispute over patents.

    Avago makes chips that keep different kinds of radio signals - like Wi-Fi and bluetooth - from interfering with each other and its components have been found in previous iPhones.

    Wireless chipmaker Skyworks and Triquint were also expected to appear in the iPhone 5.

    Other semiconductors Soules found in the phone were labeled Apple but are likely made by unnamed suppliers.

    The iPhone 5 packs three microphones, an 8 megapixel camera that can take panoramic views, and improved battery endurance supporting eight hours of 4G Web browsing, the company says.

    Sharp Corp, LG Display Co Ltd and Japan Display Inc are believed to supply Apple with display panels for its iPhones, although they were not identified in the teardown.

    Apple has sold more than 243 million iPhones since 2007.
