APPL is a sell - Ole War Skule
The party is over. I bought years ago and make a bunch, but their products are no longer leading edge. They, like Sony and Microsoft and so many others, innovated, but have grown beyond their ability to maintain their products or create new ones. Apple music is just terrible: It's 1/2 the media...

George Will on Trump - Ole War Skule
