    I hate to brag, but I've made some serious bank on AAPL in the last year and I'm chuffed...fortunately it is in my retirement account or else I would be tempted to buy stuff with it.

    If I'd bought shares instead of the product I would have less then half the amount
    the product has made me without even taking inflation into account.

    Good point, but you are in a lucky minority :) but think about all the useless crap most people buy, (me included) some of it hardly used then binned, imagine if it all went into a fund instead.
    Anyway this story made me think about the crap I buy.

    If you took the price of the first one, and had traded with it,making a .7% profit every week and reinvested,you would have around over $1 million today.
