Are Selfie Maccograms Next for Apple?

Are home mammograms just a slam dunk away?

Model demonstrates how easy the Selfie Maccogram is to administer.
 And your MacBook Air will transmit your images directly to
 the Mac-board certified radiologists assigned to your cup size.

Dear Mr. Cook:

Well, a girl can dream, can't she?

All joking aside, today I bought 1,500 shares of Apple Inc., which represents 100% of my retirement portfolio. I have a very good feeling about your company's stock (to say the least).

I am writing to thank you for the slight dip in stock price today (115.49). Though my one and only IRA took a hit, it really would have been untoward to post a profit on a day so gravely marked by the Eric Garner protests. I really appreciate the respect you're showing the Black community by not dancing on Mr. Garner's burial plot, and I admire how the Apple family, which I guess with my $175,000 + investment now includes me, is doing its part to share the pain. (So much classier than the Gates clan who posted a measly 75 cent gain. So tacky! Well, what do you expect?)

I completely agree with you that there are simply some days the happy face of empire just doesn't cut it. I hope to see the same kind of sensitivity to the permanent underclass of Capitalism in all of its diversity as the social unrest continues to disrupt business as usual.

As I really do think it will.


Sincerely yours,

Frances Madeson
