While many in the media, on social networks and in the broader investing world were agog this week over Apple’s comparatively sudden lurch for the trillion-dollar-market-cap crown[1] — largely failing to heed co-founder Steve Wozniak’s guidance[2] that a big, round number is still just a number — it was not hard to locate dissenters on Twitter, teasing the company over its lingering perceived shortcomings, its enormous and history-making new valuation notwithstanding.
