In the News Apple is now more liquid than the United States government, the Financial Post reports. As the government struggles to resolve the debt ceiling debate, the operating balance in Washington is at US$73.768 billion and falling. Meanwhile, Apple has US$75.876 billion.

A very interesting story.

Now since Apple comments that they have great stores, nice people and gurus maybe it would not be a bad idea to let them run the government. I am sure that they could turn a profit and we would all be required to use Apple only.

I have sure it would be interesting to have to go renew your license, birth records, etc, etc online with Apple or go to a friendly Apple store to do it. It might wake up the government that you don't need to be rude and obnoxious and people might have to work instead of have the cozy government jobs ...

I am sure it would work all over the world but was there not a sci-fi movie like this???

At the very least maybe Steve can offer the government a loan with interest and it sure would be a way to force Microsoft and all else out of the computer business.

Think it would be cool to have an APPLE drivers license, APPLE passport, APPLE secret service, APPLE army, navy, airport, etc, etc .. the APPLE logo everywhere ...

I think Steve Jobs for President (when he is available) and since I am from Canada - Steve Jobs for prime minister. Maybe it is high time to run government like a business or hire APPLE as consultants at the least.

Anyways a pipe dream but an interesting diversion for a quite Friday night.
