Apple 8086

Jan 10, 2006

The whole world knows that Apple officially announced it’s first Intel-based products today.  Simultaneously, Apple stock closed at a price of $80.86 (it has traded up to $81.89 in the aftermarket, but that doesn’t count.)  I once had a Compaq Deskpro with an Intel 8086 microprocessor.  What a delicious number trick – I wonder how Jobs got Nasdaq to clear the final trade of the day at $80.86.
