Buy a Blue parrot 250 headset to go wit yer new ifone. (or whatever fone you use.) WAY better than the phone speaker/mike and no stupid wires to strangle you. Only $99 at a truckstop, or 79 online. I'd never buy the apple blutooth earphones at twice the price they should be. I'm guessing it is better than the apple product, and for sure will have better noise cancelling.

You should have the Blue parrot bluetooth headset for whatever fone you have anyway. I got the first one with my Starttac. They last about 3-4 years. Longer if you replace the battery. So, the "my ifone don't ha' no eah bud jack" whine don't hold no watah!

Do you still have it invested with Apple? The backlash at the iPhone 7 is pretty severe, it brings basically nothing to the party and takes away the headphone port. I know Apple has, in the past, been heralded for pushing the world forward but I can't see this as anything other than a bad move. Most people weren't using floppy disks, or firewire or optical drives but most people use wired headphones... Looks like the stock has taken a little dip lately but nothing much, it'll be interesting to see how the 7 sells.

Because I don't want to give a big chunk of it up in capital gains taxes if I take it out now.

I'm not sure about that. My self managed IRA is based on Apple stock that I started purchasing regularly over 20 years ago. There have been three splits since I started investing in Apple. I couldn't tell you what my ROI is, but I'm guessing it's in at least the high three digit range.

If you invested $1000 in their stock in 1980 when they went public you would have around $350k in round numbers, which would put your ROI in the 31,000% range, I believe.
