It’s a great day for those stock holders of Apple Inc. Today Apple closed at 502.60. No more than 3 months ago, Apple’s stock was hanging around 360 points. The increase is in no short thanks to the iPhone 4S and Siri. People love Siri. I was just watching Street Squawk on CNBC and Jim Kramer always talks about his love affair with Siri. Man, if my grandfather had just listen to me in 1992 when Apple was like 10 bucks a share, I’d be blogging this same article but probably from Necker Island.
Also helping drive the stock price is the rumors circling around the March 7th event. While the date has been confirmed the current rumor is that at the event Apple will release the iPad 3 with a quad-core processor (possibly the A6), a 2048*1536 Retina Display and 4G LTE.
SNL hit the nail on the head about LTE – watch here:
That being said, LTE rollout has been slow internationally and the rumor is that the iPhone 5 (whenever that gets released) will have LTE as well.
We shall see in only 3 weeks. Stay tuned to Virtua Computers’ Blog for more information.
