I hate Apple. Had a MacBook Pro in college that I loved. Bought the extended warranty for it and everything. 1 month after the extended warranty expires the logic board fries on me. Took it into to the Apple store, and they said they wanted $500 to replace the logic board on a 3 year old computer and did not care one bit that my warranty literally just expired. I'm sure any other company would have looked the other way and fixed the computer for free to retain a customer, but Apple doesn't seem to care. So F them. /rant
I feel lucky. I just got mine back from Apples store. They charge $210 for the mother board and $100 for labor. I was surprised that they give me a new battery.
My biggest stock miss was Select Comfort at 6 cents per share. Everyone thought they were gonna go bust but I had inside info that they were about to get a huge cash injection to save them. I had $1000 to throw on it, but this was at the height of the recession and I just couldn't risk it knowing that something could fall through and if it did the company was DONE. That stock is sitting at $28.85 today. My $1000 would be $480,000 right now. I'm gonna go puke.
Your an honorable fella. I had a big tip in the oil business here in Calgary and didn't act either. Could have made a fortune. But I can live with myself. I have integrity. Cheers to you.
