AAPL Sauce

As one might imagine, Apple’s (AAPL) shareholders did not take the news of Steve Jobs’s medical leave of absence well. And learning that his “health-related issues are more complex” than first believed certainly didn’t help matters. After trading resumed, Apple shares tanked, plummeting eight percent to $78.50 before recovering a bit.

Clearly, shaken investors are trying to divine just what, exactly, Jobs means by “complex,” which could mean anything from more rest and time with family to surgery, IV meds or whatever.

Sounds like Jobs is doing the right thing for himself, his family and the company. But all anyone can do is hope he gets well.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
