    Wow! That's a lot of Apple pie. And to think not so long ago they were struggling.

    All of that is virtual money ... and if I may quote a favorite movie, Snatch:

    A moissanite is an artificial diamond, Lincoln. It's Mickey Mouse, mate. Spurious. Not genuine. And it's worth... f**kle.

    Cheers,

    Ask yourselves, if you turn off the computer, what you've got left?

    All money is "virtual" in a way. But I agree in your statement to some extent as much of technology "value" can change dramatically in a short amount of time. Heck I still remember when all the value of stock for many online web sites crashed a decade ago.
