Comment on How far Apple has come to reach $500 by Michael Anderson
Beta News - about 5 years
Very good perspective, Joe.  It is funny how many people are either too young to remember or have simply forgotten this stuff.  For me it is like the New England Patriots - I spent my life with them as perpetual losers, so I never become complacent with them being in a winning position over the last decade. And that is what I see with Apple - it is like those who lived through the depression and became millionaires later yet mended their socks and never used credit ... once you have stared oblivion in the eye that closely ... and THAT many times, you just never forget.
