      Where to start? I just don't know, except you've just added "enterprise business finance" to the ever increasing list of things you obviously know nothing about.

      How do you seriously propose that IBM get the money to buy MS? Even if they wanted to, which they almost certainly do not.

      It is mega corps that created our industry. No mention for intel in your rant?

      Do you do anything but whipsaw from one topic to the next posting incoherent troll messages?

      Good lord that's a lot of space for an OS. Nevermind whether 640K is enough for everyone, before long 640G won't be enough for Microsoft!

        A big chunk of that's Office, isn't it? Not that forcing Office on people will make the Surface any more beloved.

    Apples to Oranges.

    I'm not defending the Big Oil companies, so don't get me wrong there. But how on Earth does a company that makes it monies off of portable web browsing devices, become worth more than the supply of Petroleum?

    When the Zombies of the Apocalypse come, grab your mobile!

    Detachment might be the biggest key aspect in Apple's success.

      Well, because share value is determined byexpected value increases. Doesn't matter if you have an insane business plan or if you will be out of business in six months (at least, not directly). As long as your next price is higher than your current one, people will make money.

      Oil isnt sexy or clever. Tablets are. But if apple goes out of Favour or fashion. Watch the price burn...
