where are the dividends that apple is supposed to be paying out? i'm sure that these authors make lots and lots when they write about jobs and woz

Thanks for the message Randy. My understanding is that public companies aren't supposed to pay out dividends. They can, and I'm sure shareholders would love it, but shareholders might also want Apple to reinvest that money into the company. Seems like the latter approach has worked so far considering Apple's incredible stock price (http://www.dailyfinance.com/quote/nasdaq/apple/aapl). I also think some authors will make more than others. Isaacson will make a lot, for sure.
