And say what about it? Address it how?
It's the stock market. It's a dirty, sh¡††y game which Apple doesn't pander to publicly or otherwise.
I don't have to show you a damned thing--do your own research. You are, after all, the goofball who claims Macs crash and are difficult to use. So obviously any attempt at rational discussion with the likes of you is DOA, you established that from the get-go. You are of no consequence, and I've wasted enough time on you already.
Since it is widely known that Apple is kicking #$%$ in enterprise with both its OS X and iOS devices, one must conclude that you're #$%$uming (or hoping) those reading your posts are as pathologically ignorant as you are.
Who released info about an iPhone 5s? If it wasn't Apple itself, then you can consider it bullsh¡† until further notice.
It's got nothing to do with what type of computer you're using. It's Yahoo's website, Yahoo's software, it works the same on a Mac as anything else.
Yahoo! likely won't do ANYTHING that might reduce page activity, which would include removing posts or restricting users. Page hits are ad hits, and ad hits are revenue, and that's all Yahoo! cares about. (They of course have no problem censoring naughty language for fear of alienating certain "sensitive" users, which could again result in reduced site activity and thus lost revenue.)
Oh, now there's a thorough scientific study if there ever was one. I'll bet you were standing there in your lab coat with like a clipboard and everything.
You had better have a hell of a lot more to hang your hat on than that; a pipe dream that SOME day FaceBook will figure out a way to generate income from their user base in order to justify their absurd valuation isn't gonna cut it.
Pay attention, nitwit. Under Cook the stock also went from $350 (when he took over) to $700 about a year later. Or are you pretending not to know that.
Don't be stupid. Apple shareholder meetings have never been a venue for product announcements or anything else, and no one is expecting otherwise.
We don't give an airborne sh¡† what aea do, does, diddle or doink.
Almost 2/3 of the way through the current quarter and the new iMacs are still practically nowhere to be found. Apple's own online store is showing 2-3 week shipping delays on the 21" and 3-4 weeks on the 27". Even if they solve the production problems it's hard to see how they could possibly catch up to meet expectations and estimates at this late date. Has to be the most bungled rollout of any new Apple product in the last decade.
Pay attention, weenie wiggle:

Apple buying small companies every other month but constantly evaluating larger acquisitions
By Kevin Bostic
Speaking at Goldman Sachs' Technology and Internet Conference on Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook pointed to the company's "deliberate, thoughtful" mantra as a reason it doesn't typically acquire large companies but admitted it's not opposed to such purchases if the right one comes along.
Instead, Cook noted how Apple has actively been acquiring smaller companies that it finds as a better fit.
"If you look at the past three years," Cook said, "we've averaged about an acquisition every other month. They're companies where they have really smart people and/or IP. Generally speaking, we've been in many cases taking something they're working on and move the skills to work on something else."
Cook went on to cite the example of Apple's acquisition of PA Semiconductor.
"This was an incredibly skilled group of guys, and they could supplement an incredible group of folks and they were working on PowerPC at the time. We didn't have an interest in that, so we moved the skills to work on our iPhone and other engines. We will do more of those."
As to large companies, Cook said the company's patient and deliberate approach to acquisitions typically precluded such purchases, despite Apple's cash holdings in excess of $125 billion.
"We have looked at large companies. In each case, it didn't pass our test. Will we look at more? I think so. But we're disciplined and thoughtful, and we don't feel a pressure to go out and acquire revenue. We want to make great products. If a large company could help us, then that would be of interest. But, again: Deliberate, thoughtful is our mantra."
[From AppleInsider Feb. 12, 2013]
One of Apple's huge advantages over their competitors is their cash, and the leverage it gives them to outbid anyone else in the acquisition of other companies or technologies that keeps them in the lead. If Apple is forced to return their mountain of money to investors, it may give the share price a temporary boost, but in the long run this will severely hamstring Apple competitively and could send them down the road to irrelevance.
Think very carefully about which way you vote your shares.
Old "news". That article is from a Bloomberg article dated December of last year, just prior to the disappointing quarterly results.
Wall Street banks/market makers heavily invested and desperate to rid themselves of this corpse are keeping it propped up by moving shares around to give the illusion of interest in the stock to retail buyers, all the while selling to these poor saps who chase the latest fad not knowing any better.
Fact of the matter is, people are sick of the privacy problems and obnoxious ads with FaceBook and the company simply has no answer nor solution to growing revenues without exacerbating these inherent problems in their business model which are daily driving account holders away.
Have a nice weekend, Mr. Lomax.
