Don’t become a pawn to Apple addiction

Dear John: Avid reader here. Now, about the recent [column] concerning Apple: My fear is that when you stop feeding the beast (Apple), they’ll come out with an iOS update that’ll spank us for not going out to buy the latest and greatest iPhone.

Somehow or other they will slow down our phones and get us to upgrade.

Since I’m so Apple-dependent, I think I’m going to buy just enough shares of Apple stock that my after-tax dividend pays for a new phone each year.

Add that to my coffee dividend (Starbucks), my lunch dividend (McDonalds) and my grocery dividend (Kroger) S.P.

Dear S.P. I’m not a doctor, but I see signs of addiction. Apple has gotten you hooked on its junk and now you can’t break the habit.

I understand that.

But McDonald’s? Every day? See a cardiologist. And buy health-care stocks if you need the dividend to pay the bills.

Look, you need more help than I can give you. All I can hope is that your stocks don’t stop paying dividends so that you can continue to afford your lifestyle.
