    Nope, Apple stock up more than $4, but it's unrelated to this story. After a few idots sold their stock after Apple's financial results, a few smart people saw that it was a steal and jumped on board.

    Now if Apple could just "fix" prices on their memory. :)

    I wonder how much of their "profits" come from charging 3x market value for RAM upgrades?

    South Korea's situation?

    Is it me, or did they do nothing wrong? With most manufacturers, you get cheaper prices in bulk. A few hundred memory chips is probably going to be consideribly cheaper then a few hundred bought seperately. I'd imagine a consumer buying 2/3 of a producer's stock or whatever Apple got would get a pretty good discount....
