Re: Cutthroat tactics?

Looks like typical FUD to me. My guess is this will turn out to be one of three things:

Re: Tesla battery

I read the car has the equivalent of eight of these storage units...

Yeah, the larger car battery pack is 85kWh compared to 7 or 10 for these house batteries. That makes it completely impractical to charge the car from the house [more]

Re: So glad to be out of the working world

What is Mara’s job like?

This is a rant about some horrible dehumanizing job in a horrible dehumanizing corporation. But is there any reality behind it? What business could this be? Certainly nothing I can think of. Maybe some sort of [more]

Re: Dividend change?

Apple has already said they will be reviewing their dividend and the buyback program yearly. I'm sure we will hear about it on Monday, since it's been a year.

Re: Retirement Planner

My only regret is that I would have retired earlier if I'd know how fantastic the stock market was going to perform.
