We've demonstrated a strong track record of being very disciplined with the use of our cash. We don't let it burn a hole in our pocket, we don't allow it to motivate us to do stupid acquisitions. And so I think that we'd like to continue to keep our powder dry, because we do feel that there are one or more strategic opportunities in the future.
Steve Jobs

Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven't done a thing. You are just talking.
