Apple propaganda

Delay? What delay? Any delay regarding Apple and AT&T has been treated as a mini-catalyst. For every story about iPhone flaws, there are the huddled masses gathering at Apple stores to pick up their spanking new 4Gees.

I've never owned an iPhone, iPad or even iPod, but that makes me no less an afficianado for information about Apple. Though shares could plummet back to its two-year low of 78 in a global meltdown, products would be no less cool and hot. Even with the two-day pullback, AAPL is in the red zone at 270.

I remain 100% cash in this thoroughly manipulated and acidic environment. Maybe it's finally time to get a toy for myself. Me and an iPad. Wow, that's too much. I'm salivating. No. Not really.

Some of these reports are a week old. Hey, I'm catching up.
