Apple doin' Good… Great

You may be asking yourself, “Why does he have a picture of Michael Dell in this post when the title has Apple in it?”.

Well, I am glad you asked that.  I was reading over at MacRumors that Apple’s net worth is up to over 157 Billion Dollars.  That great, wonderful, I am happy for them.  Want to see how they compare to other companies?  Click the image and it’ll take you to the MacRumors article.

So, here is where we get to the Michael Dell part and why the photo is there…. In the same posting about Apple’s net worth, there is a great comment by Michael Dell in 1997 when asked about what he would do to fix the then money-losing Apple:

“What would I do? I’d shut [Apple] down and give the money back to the shareholders,” Michael Dell said before a crowd of several thousand IT executives.

FUCKING AWESOME!!!  That is why Apple is worth $100 billions dollars more then dell at the moment. and taking a quick look at the two companies closing stocks prices…

Apple (APPL) – $179.30

Dell (DELL) – $25.13
