If they're rolling thinking far ahead is our there's something I mean let's rackspace -- -- hot space there what apple -- a big cloud computing.
That would be great that they and we're only worth about seven billion -- you'd still have ninety -- -- laughed.
So we're just like can talk about that you know where would you put a hundred billion dollars -- -- Now that would be and things tonight I think -- -- sandbagging at some investors it is making absolutely nothing off their mobile clients and you know there's.
At least few hundred million dollars in mobile advertising on just the iPhone yeah although there will be a lot of howling -- So apple links infancy benefited right from venture capital and any mention -- but that's an inch of the -- of so established right sell.

Apple really is in the middle of of a flip and -- you take it trying to it right.
Do you Tim could tell the numbers that in 2007 they had a billion dollars -- sales are now they have twenty billion anything that we have even scratched the surface about.
Their problem is going to be able to be that supply chain they keep up with the demand for their product.
