What a shame that his death was immediately preceded by the first keynote address by his successor, which was widely seen as a dud. He was certainly quite a visionary! Didn't I read recently that Apple now holds more assets than the US?

RIP

I for one am hoping cancer spares someone. RIP from a fellow disease sufferer. He was a visionary genius.

Jobs wasn't a cancer victim - he was a victim of "modern medicine". zg

If you did, don't use that source anymore. The gov't owns 30% of the land in the US, including massive mineral rights. Then there are buildings, the military, reserves, etc. Apple's Market Cap is $350B. But that's just paper and can change in an instant. Assets around $110B, I think. Still an astounding amount, and mostly cash (about $75B). This may be what you are reading. The US cash balance fell that low in the days before the debt ceiling was raised.
