What up with all the hand-wringing?

My goodness. Katie just sent me this piece by Charles Cooper from CNET which rounds up all the bitching and moaning about the recession and how if the economy goes bad that’s going to kill Apple and everybody should sell their shares and move to the mountains and live in a cabin and start stockpiling food and ammo … or something. Headline is “Apple agonistes.” Man oh man. At least it ends well — Coop says the iPhone “remains head-and=shoulders above any smartphone in the industry,” and that the Apple faithful are going to stand by us no matter what. Right on Coop. And right on, Apple faithful. Keep on buying the products, and your precious Apple stock will go back up too. Geddit? It’s a loop. And there’s nothing to worry about.
