Dear John: Avid reader here. Now, about the recent [column] concerning Apple: My fear is that when you stop feeding the beast (Apple), they’ll come out with an iOS update that’ll spank us for not going out to buy the latest and greatest iPhone.
Somehow or other they will slow down our phones and get us to upgrade.
Since I’m so Apple-dependent, I think I’m going to buy just enough shares of Apple stock that my after-tax dividend pays for a new phone each year.
Add that to my coffee dividend (Starbucks), my lunch dividend (McDonalds) and my grocery dividend (Kroger) S.P.
Dear S.P. I’m not a doctor, but I see signs of addiction. Apple has gotten you hooked on its junk and now you can’t break the habit.
