TNW - Talk about buyer’s remorse; our co-founder, Patrick de Laive has been working out how wealthy he’d have been if he’d bought Apple shares instead of a shiny new 17″ PowerBook G4 back in 2003.
Discussing the 'what ifs' now won't do any good! I'm sure the same can be said about a number of other companies.
Agreed, all you can do is ( if you want to ), keep a sharp eye things from here on.
So true. We missed the boat along with most. So many huge companies today sold stock for dollars or cents once apon a time. If I knew then what I know now.
Ahaha, that's an interesting view point!
so what this article says is instead of buying devices from a company we should by shares of said company instead. coz you cant lose. if the company does well, you become rich. if it doesn't, you lose. but with the rate your device depreciates, you lose the same amount of money anyways.
The problem is, you get to enjoy the product if you go that route. Meanwhile a failed stock is simply a giant waste of money with no return on it at all.
and if everyone bought stock and not the product there would be no profit from shares
Hey, my first comment wasn't off-topic, though this might be.
If there was a Derp rating, I'd use that instead. bwazy sums it up nicely.
