23 years old. Been lurking in both this and the past AFB. Have learned a lot, won a lost and lost a lot over the past year and a half. I'm not an active poster because I am merely learning from the experienced traders. I'm hoping I will learn more about trading once I finish college, to hopefully make this a side income. Meanwhile, I run a wee online company and waste its proceedings in options.

I'm originally from rural western NC, worked in the engineering/construction field all over the USA during my career which continues and I'm currently in Los Alamos, NM.
Loved Macs in the early nineties, but gradually converted to PCs at work and home but kept my eye on Apple as a company and was inspired/impressed at their resilience and re-surgance with the iPod. Always admired Steve Jobs and was rooting for him when he came back to Apple.
Around 2006, I thought Macs could become mainstream again because of their ability to run Windows programs on Macs. Also, about that time my kids were big iPod fans and I noticed how their whole generation chose iPods over the cheaper MP3 players.
I started investing in AAPL about the time the original iPhone was released. Mostly do spreads and leaps now. I feel the fundamentals will continue to be strong for the foreseeable future, so I am holding my positions thru the current downturn.
I was on AFB1 for a couple years, and glad we landed here after that debacle on the other board. I'm very thankful for the perspective and input I glean from this board. Hope we can continue and hope we're over $1000 by 2014!
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

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
