Did anyone else have an Apple card in the late 90's?
It was probably put out by Citibank and morphed into my current card when the Apple portion went away. It gave 5% on purchases towards Apple products, similar to some other rewards cards out there like the GM card that gave 5% towards a GM car. I didn't spend much then, but over a year or two it's rewards paid for a StyleWriter 2400 printer.
I don't know how much Apple input there was on it. But the branding was there, on the card and on the correspondences. I still have a letter from it in one of my boxes of old computer stuff.
The current one is vastly different, with an emphasis on security and ApplePay. But like mentioning the current dividend, it bugs me when they say the current iteration is the first time ever.
We have the choice to build this board up, or tear it down. Make the right choice, or don't post here.
To All: Please remember to keep non-Apple SPECIFIC political stuff out of the daily thread. Post it over in the Dungeon, if you really want to discuss it with others on the AAPL Finance Board.
8-24-20 I give a 40+% probability on 15+% annualized returns for the next 2 years. For Sept expirations, using today's ($125.75), that's roughly ($146) for Sept '21, ($169) for Sept '22
MacRumors has Apple Employees Testing Apple Arcade Ahead of Launch and I find it weird that “Apple employees are able to access Apple Arcade for $0.49 per month, with a one month free trial available.” Why is the (sometimes) most valuable company in the world bothering to extract such a pittance from its employees?
Quartz had Apple is going to be the company that kills the wallet, which is of course just the next step begun by Apple Pay. I know that cash stays in my wallet a lot longer than it used to, and Apple has begun the process of making physical cards of many types irrelevant.

Trump said Cook “made a good case” that tariffs could hurt Apple given that Samsung’s products would not be subject to those same tariffs. Tariffs on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, including consumer electronics, are scheduled to go into effect in two stages on Sept. 1 and Dec. 15.
"I thought he made a very compelling argument, so I’m thinking about it,” Trump said.

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
