Hot Holiday Products Drive Value for Apple, Google

One of the big value drivers for Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) is its ecosystem. Once you've bought a few songs through iTunes and a few iOS apps for your iPhone or iPad, you're far less likely to change brands when it comes time to upgrade your phone or tablet.

    Rex, if you fought along side Davey Crockett shouldn't you be slowing down or retired by now? Traveling at your advanced years isn't healthy for seniors. ;)
