As I begin this blog, I plan to write a lot about technology products. I want you as readers to know that I own a small number of shares in Apple, Intel and Cisco directly. I also want readers to know that I am not a fan of Apple products merely because I own stock in Apple. I own stock in Apple because I am a fan of Apple products. Next time you’re in a shopping mall with an Apple store, see if it’s the most crowded store in the mall. Chances are, it is.
