    Profit taking, got to love it.

    Especially since it has been quite awhile since people bought on the rumors, and dumped on the news.

    Which was always fun to see keynote stock crashes.

    iPhone and iPod touch new was meant to spark investors... sheesz... not everything is about short term stock market gains...

    These were just simple storage increases for gawd's sake!

    Good investors don't think of boredom/excitement. They are patient and they take care with what they're doing. That's why they're investors and not traders.

    Lol, so true.

    ps. It's unbelievable how many thoughtless writers there are nowadays.

    That article is silly.

    Simply not true. Actually, more often than not, it drops sharply after announcements. For instance, looking through the charts, you can see the drop right after the iMac event. I tell you, investors are even more upset about a missing "one more thing" than us regular folks. :) The reason is, ever since the iPhone, expectations for these events are gigantonormously high and therefore always disappointed.

    And "uncertainty about unlocked iPhones"? What does that even mean? (The video won't play for me.)

    Let them sell. Someone else will finally get his buy price...

    The missing "one more thing" was the 32Gb iPod touch... which now it's out has been roundly bashed for being too soon, too little, too much, not enough.

    Go figure. Apple's figuring to bank big on it and is probably right!
