Watch out Apple, look back in history and see what happened to the Bell Telephone company. Politicians do punish too much success.

While it's great that Apple has found a way to market well and produce a profit, this in no way proves that the US, much less all of America, is better at innovation on the matter than other countries.

There is no question whatsoever in regard to America leading the world. Only wingnuts and their ilk believe otherwise; we know them well in this forum. This is not to say that innovation and achievement do not exist overseas.

We're barely average in everything, we do not lead the world, the US is dragging the rest of America down with it right now. The only thing we lead in is military. That is the reality of the issue. Apple just markets products which other companies develop, and they make no qualms about that. Their innovation is in advertising and branding, nothing more.

Understand, careful, that President Nixon broke up the Bell System when the nation was crying and screaming about the power of the oil companies.

We had the oil crisis, horizontal and vertical integration, false shortages (no gasoline with tankers held offshore,) and price fixing and gaging. We had alternate day only fueling, and people ripping out their hair when the oil trck filled their basement tank.

So, Mr Nixon directed the Justice Department to institute a suit to break up IBM, and another to break up the Bell System.

When people complained about the oil octopus, Nixon told us that there just weren't enough anti-trust lawyers left to put together the case.
In case you didn't know it, Nixon started as an BIG OIL oil Congressman from Southern california.

So, if the banks and financial houses are threatened with breakup because they are now "too big to fail;" Apple, and Microsoft too had better watch out.
