    I have to think getting that many coins together would be fairly difficult without creating a problem at the treasury

    Up a tree.
    My thoughts too. Any bank you go to would laugh at the request. I don't think they'd be able to get the coins, nor would they want the bad publicity that would come from doing something so childish.

    Where do people find these bogus "news" articles?

    The best part is that it is over a year old. Silly stuff.

    So I am always curious Zombie, not antagonistic, but I am curious about why anyone would harbor negative feelings toward Apple. I understand the fanboi thing, sure, it's a brilliant marketing effort, however I really have a tough time understanding how someone who, based on the phone platform they own would have negative opinions of the largest company in the world,an American company, employing tens of thousands of people, cash rich and debt free....and still an American success story. Why the hate? Is it just everyone hates whomever is at the top? It's an honest question.

    I hate them for their snotty better than you attitude. Same reason I hate Dyson.

    I give them credit for the magnetic power plug but nothing else they have come up with is unique or special.

    I have the same question for the Bill Gates haters. Never have understood that one.

    Wow.

    They essentially invented the tablet market and the smartphone market... but NBD I guess.

    i have a ipod . but i dont like Apple persay . i dont like propriotary electronics . i like open ended stuff . stuff i can do what i want .


    and the fanboys are worse them bama fans . they think apple is the best thing ever.

    over priced , made in china electronics . if so many people would not have a orgasm when the word apple comes up it would not be so bad.

    i dont hate .

    people want to think apple is light years ahead of everyone when in reality at the moment they are behind .

    What do US coins and Samsung smartphones have in common?
    Both were made by South Korean companies.

    While Apple is not on the bleeding edge of technology, they do tend to set the trends that other companies follow, good or bad. Everything from packaging, to features, to entire devices.

    All they'd have to do is take it to a bank. Nobody is really going to sit there and hand roll it.

    You do not see the snottyness?? I sure do. Hate may be strong but I do get a little pleasure out of Apple having problems.

    They hardly invented the tablet and smart phone market, both were available before Apple did it. They were the first to sell tablet with big success I don't give them any smart phone credit at all.

    Another reason I do not like them is they treat their suppliers like crap. Yes, I am a capitalist and respect their right to do it but they really take it to an extreme all the while acting enlightened and better than everyone else.

    Does the whole treasury of Korea have a billion dollars in 5 cent coins? That's 20 BILLION coins! I don't think so.
