    Mm...that’s 1 trillion US dollars....or 53 trillion pesos....that is how much the Duterte admin will spend for build, build, build or as critics call it alternatively......bill, bill, bill.....:ROFLMAO:

    Seriously, I pity Steve Wozniak. He must be kicking his nutsack for selling too early. Steve Jobs’ family is currently worth USD 20 B (up from 10B when Steve died).

    Let's not get carried away. Apple will release their own line of fast chargers for an affordable price of $100 which will sell like hotcakes.

    But it’s made of premium components, and it’s by Apple, so it must be worth it!

    Cheers to Apple. Here’s to another Trillion.

    Congrats Apple! Now for more money just remove the lightning port as well on the next iphone and sell your wireless charger (air power) separately for only $199! Wireless charging is the future!!!!

    Mm...services is the new cash cow for Apple. Tim Cook wants USD 20 Billion per quarter from services by 2020. I’m sure a Netflix-like subscription service is coming very soon. With more than a billion active and captive devices on hand, it is a no-brainer. Apple is spending big (playing catch up with Netflix and Amazon) to create original content (TV series).

    Mm...meanwhile, rounding up the rest of the pack, Amazon and Alphabet (Google) are within strking distance to cross the 1 trillion dollar milestone in the forseeable future. Let us not forget Microsoft. It is amazing what Satya Nadella has done for Microsoft. During Steve Ballmer’s watch, Microsoft was in the doghouse and derided by many critics as an uncool, has-been company destined to the dustbin of corporate history on the back of plummeting PC hardware sales and its disastrous Nokia purchase as a means to take on the iPhone.

    Now, it is an USD 829 billion dollar company, thanks to its hot, hot, hot Cloud business and its decision to open its product line to non-windows OS.

    Oh yeah. They're already investing USD1 Billion in original content.

    Or they can just acquire Netflix along with its 130 Million plus subscribers.
