    With all due respect, why is this news? This happened almost immediately
    upon the introduction of the iPhone, many months ago.

    As for "they can't give them away", I think you're deluding yourself. This
    is from a Sept 10, 2007 article:
    http://www.marketwatch.com/news/stor...B38E4A676D2%7D.
    Is yours a troll post? If so, I think I got caught. ;-)

    It's hardly dumping if they are making record profits.

    Dumping is selling at a loss, like Toshiba is doing with the HD-DVD
    players.

    Correction: For its 3G iPhone RUMOURED to be due our in June, or in
    fact rumoured in some cases to be out "in the second quarter 2008".

    Me. I don't have a digital camera, nor an iPod, nor a mobile phone
    (iPhone is not available here yet, at least not officially).

    Almost every company on the planet lowers the price of the "old model"
    just before or when the "new model" arrives. It's standard business
    practice to get rid of old stock still on shelves.

    As I said before, "need" is a totally different concept to "want". It's
    the greedy "want" that basically drives technology these days. The Mac
    magazine I get interviews people about their Apple equipment, and it's
    ridiculous how people (especially the "students") have multiple iPods -
    the latest twit brags about having five of them! More money than sense,
    or at least more credit than sense. :-\

    Maybe not everyone in the world can be as fortunate as you were to be born
    into your family with the ability to spend your parents' money.

    Although the telephone, Internet and health systems do indeed make New
    Zealand appear to be a third world (if not fourth world) country, it
    claims to be higher up the chain than that.

    Personally I simply have absolutely no use for a digital camera, iPod,
    PDA or mobile phone. For the last one I'm waiting for the G3 iPhone to
    be released here ... probably some stage in 2010 judging by when we got
    an iTunes store, but at least by then I might actually need one. :-)

    "Record profits" make the stock price INCREASE, not drop....

    Touche'

    http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=AAPL&t=3m
    I direct your attention to the EIGHTY DOLLAR DROP in the stock price
    since only January 1, 2008 during the iPhone's wonderful sales "record
    profits"

    $80 represents a 40% DROP in the price of Apple stock since Jan 1, 2008.

    "Record Profits" my ass......something bad is happening.

    http://finance.yahoo.com/q/it?s=AAPL
    Now, I'd like to direct your attention to the forced reported stock
    sales by the top Apple brass who know what's going on that YOU and Vic
    don't.
    Ignoring Al Gore's massive 600 shares for a moment before you start
    laughing like I am, notice how FEW shares the other jokers at the top of
    this dogpile actually own.

    4-Jan-08 FORSTALL SCOTT J
    Officer 12 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A
    4-Jan-08 MANSFIELD ROBERT J
    Officer 888 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A
    4-Jan-08 IVE JONATHAN P
    Officer 792 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A
    4-Jan-08 JUNG ANDREA
    Director 77 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A

    If my company were making "RECORD PROFITS" and its outlook were just
    wonderful, I'd take those $5 (Jobs' option price) to $20 option shares
    and PILE THEM UP FOR GREAT PROFITS! The list goes back to '06 and they
    CONTINUE to dump shares, not buying any more AT ALL since Jan 2007!
    That's real faith in Apple's company health, isn't it?! THEY DON'T OWN
    THEIR OWN COMPANY STOCK! Look who dumped it at the bottom of the list!

    9-Mar-06 JOBS STEVEN P
    Officer 4,573,553 Direct Disposition (Non Open Market) at $64.66
    - $64.66 per share. $295,726,000

    Why would anyone be so stupid as to dump 4.5M shares when the stock was
    headed for $200/share?? He doesn't "need the money"! Doesn't make any
    sense. Insiders dump stock when they THINK the company is going DOWN!

    Most curious...most curious, indeed.... His deeds don't reflect the guy
    in blue jeans and t-shirt hawking product on stage...

    12-Feb-08 FADELL ANTHONY
    Officer 25,000 Direct Sale at $128.32 - $128.56 per share.
    $3,211,000
    This guy must be one of the brighter bulbs in the box.....while it
    continues to drop 2%/day.

    Last Trade: 119.69
    Trade Time: 4:00PM ET
    Change: Down 2.56 (2.09%)
    Prev Close: 122.25

    See the point? What's wrong with Apple? Something ain't right!
