What Apple could have done with its $100 billion cash pileWhat Apple could have done with its $100 billion cash pile

(1:59) Apple has decided on what to do with its whopping $100 billion stack of cash it has acquired - pay dividends to shareholders (the first since 1995) and buy back some shares to take more control of the company. Taiwanese news channel NMA have been thinking different and suggest some alternative ways to spend the money. If you were Apple, how would you spend $100 billion?

assuming $200,000/yr salary (which is massively high pay except in California). $100b would hire 500,000 engineers for one year. or even at 7% simple interest, it would hire 35 000 engineers forever. but instead of giving it to people that work to earn money and receiving work product for it. Apple gave it to shareholders, the people that move money around to make more money and got nothing for it. Smooth move.

They couldn't have bought Microsoft. Microsoft is worth a little over 200 billion market capitalization right now.
