Re: Warren explains.....

Indeed, Buffett recently said that he thinks Berkshire will be able to outperform the market for likely another 10-20 years.

does anyone here have a new iPad?

I started with an iPad 3, have since turned it into a hand-me-down, and am using an iPad Air 2. I believe it's a real improvement / upgrade.
