(NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO’s life. “When I read the script, Steve was a guy that I really admired, and he was not always being shown in the best light, and I was a little taken aback. I really admire who he is and what he’s done. I want to in some ways protect the legacy of a guy that I admire,” Kutcher said.

Is Apple targeting $580? (MarketWatch)
Now that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) +0.21% has broken out above the 200-day, downtrend, moving average and broken above the psychologically important 500 price, is it ready to target resistance at $508 and $580?

The big question is can price hold above the 200-day and will it move still higher as Icahn does his thing?
