    Apple says economy is “depressed”…

    If it wasn't for this damn depression we would have sold all our
    inventory of iPhone 3G on July 11,2008 then we could have closed for
    the rest of the month and gone fishing.

    While some people continue to debate whether or not we’re actually in
    a recession, Apple (AAPL) went a step further in the 10Q it filed
    yesterday, using stark new language to describe the state of the
    economy in its risk factors section:

    The Company’s operations and performance depend significantly on
    worldwide economic conditions and their impact on levels of consumer
    spending, which have recently deteriorated significantly in many
    countries and regions, including without limitation the United States,
    and may remain depressed for the foreseeable future. For example, some
    of the factors that could influence the levels of consumer spending
    include continuing increases in fuel and other energy costs,
    conditions in the residential real estate and mortgage markets, labor
    and healthcare costs, access to credit, consumer confidence and other
    macroeconomic factors affecting consumer spending behavior. These and
    other economic factors could have a material adverse effect on demand
    for the Company’s products and services and on the Company’s financial
    condition and operating results.”

    Yeah, I'm so depressed about it that I'm going to throw myself on the
    Alter of Unbridled Consumerism and spend the rest of my putrid miserable
    life looking for 'made in China' labels.

    it's a matter of priorities. Last Christmas I decided on a Garmin Nuvi
    360, instead of an iPhone.

    Someone else may decide on an iPhone or two instead of a 3rd HDTV for
    the house.

    The US voters decided a few years ago better to spend money on a war.
