Apple I'm sorry, but I can't get around it any more. Over the weekend, we had a story in the reputable Wall Street Journal that Steve Jobs had a liver transplant two months ago in a hospital in Tennessee. This story got all over the Apple media - obviously - and was later confirmed by the hospital in question. All the usual questions arose about privacy, Warren Buffet had a remark about it, and so on. Let's get all these stories out of the way in one go.

Something no one seems to have mentioned so far, what would have happened to apple stock if it had been announced? It would have plummeted, making shareholders stocks worth a lot lot less, so it could be argued if you don't agree that it was/is a purely private matter that not mentioning it was in the best interest of the shareholders.
