Again, another complete non sequitur. Are you and limey related? The same person perhaps?

When challenged about something you've stated but can't prove or provide supporting evidence, you simply change the subject. That is the mark of a troll.

Limey has done it countless times over the years, so much so that I automatically discount anything he writes because he seldom provides links for his assertions. They're just his crazy, heavily biased, anti-Apple opinions. As such, I don't respect his ideas much.

I've not known you to do the same, continuously make outlandish statements without backing them up. Unlike limey and sylvester, you aren't even banned from the main Apple thread, but you haven't posted there in 2-1/2 years and choose to post here instead.

It's up to you to decide the type of SI participant you want to me. Choose wisely.

Steve Jobs - pre fanboy days. When Apple was REAL... enjoy... this used to be what it was all about.



Frank, honest and open!

Busiest US port hit by 7th straight month of export declines amid escalating trade war

Two indicators in the aviation industry may be pointing to a looming global downturn

David Stockman: Fed would be ‘totally nuts’ to cut rates - even as trade war risks escalate

Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1981–1985) under President Ronald Reagan.

“He is only risking upsetting the entire apple cut with this infatuation with tariffs,” said Stockman, who reiterated his call for a 40% market plunge during his March “Futures Now” appearance.

Yet, Stockman also believes there’s a chance the S&P 500 could exceed its all-time high of 2,940 this year — especially if the Fed cuts rates at next week’s policy meeting. But he expects a new record would be short-lived due to the geopolitical and monetary backdrop.

“It may go up beyond that. Who knows? But it is not sustainable because all the debt is there,” Stockman said. “It’s only a matter of time before we run out of luck on policy.”

No reason it should. With labor costs rising in China and the idea of supporting an untrustworthy Communist turd of a government that has never respected IP (or human) rights becomes increasingly unsavory, Apple and all other Western companies having products made in China will be smart to look elsewhere.

We'll see how resolute president Xi's regime is if companies start leaving in droves over the next few years, their economy falters, and more of their people are out of work.

I hope that happens regardless of what Trump does or if he's reelected or not.
