    I wouldn't dare short Apple, and I do think Tim Cook is a rock star, but I think we'll see the company lose some value. Competition is fierce in the major tech players, and Apple has big expectations to meet with thier new phone and 2013 expected release of television integrated products.

    The chart does look good. If the stock shows strong support in the event of a pull back (maybe the unemployment data coming out this week) then that would be a bullish sign I would look for.

    With the price of oil shooting through the roof I expect Exxon to eclipse Apple as worlds largest market cap, but who knows.

    Tablets were a fail for years until Steve Jobs mainstreamed them. What future technological product pathways did he leave Apple? I think that's how high they can go.

    yep pretty crazy. Durring the whole debt celling fiasco Apple had more cash on hand than the US government.

    I agree, but to play devil's advocate there's still market share to take away from RIMM.

    Product lines take away that market share. I wonder what new lines were bouncing around in Steve's head? He was working like a blistering maniac in his last year. I think he had a large product line legacy.

    Weren't we hearing alot about future Apple TV integration products in the pipeline come 2013? I aslo don't think they've really scratched the surface with a the I Pad, but they're not the only player in that market. I could see Amazon coming out with ground breaking stuff, they're always pretty cutting edge.

    It was the comfortable integration style of Jobs that was his real win. Look at the small manuals and common sense navigation in using the tech.
