If you believe in life after death in the iClouds, then you'll believe Steve Jobs is fluffin it up extra today.
Apple shares have risen three percent, marking a "historic closing high of $422."
If you'd like to know how valuable these shares are, Apple is still worth four times what Disney and Time Warner are worth…combined. ….that's A LOT of green!
Since Steve Jobs' death (tear), the overall stock has risen twelve percent.
Thank you, Steve, for getting people excited about stocks again!
Is it just us, or is this kind of strange?
Back in December, we were pretty skeptical about Joe Jackson's persistent efforts to pursue the wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray. Seemed to us like Joe was looking for a pay day.
Now, it appears that we've learned why Joe might have wanted some extra $$$ - to invest in a five-star hotel/amusement park in Vietnam called Happyland.
That's right, folks. Jackson invested in the $2
million billion 1,000-room hotel/amusement park in the southern Long An province in Vietnam, which is scheduled to be completed in 2014.
Here's what Jackson had to say about it:
"I like discovering different cultures in the world. I like this project the most because it is located in a beautiful cultural and natural space."
We certainly can appreciate the desire to discover different cultures, but when Joe Jackson originally filed the wrongful death lawsuit on Michael's behalf, he never stated that the money would be going towards an amusement park and fancy hotel…in Vietnam.

This is what MySpace needs: a heavyweight investor.
Last year, U2 frontman Bono handed over $195 million Mark Zuckerberg and became an investor in Facebook. In just a year, his investment has come back to him three times over as his share in the social networking site is now worth $728 million!
Wowza! Now that's a payoff for sure!
Or at least, it will be, when the site starts getting recognized at the stock exchange. Think of all the good deeds he can do with that!
P.S. - Seriously, someone needs to do this for MySpace and quickly.
