Seems people were brain washed by the article that suggests Apple has more cash on hand than the US Govt. Malxau, you were the only one that picked this out.. or came close. Kodus...

Actual "cash on hand" for operations is only
$2,769M ($2.7B) per apples SEC disclosure.
They have other investments they used cash to purchase since god know how long including US Bonds, CD, Mutual Funds, Stocks of other companies, etc etc.

I cant beleive why so many missed this.
